Our flagship wine lines up all our big guns to fire a salute to our winemaking ancestor. Chosen from the best shiraz barrels of the vintage, this wine spends two years in the best French oak to add further depths of intrigue. Centred around rich plum characters, sweetly perfumed, corseted by sophisticated aniseed and coffee aromas, the wine has an intense, layered palate strengthened by spice, earthiness and velvet tannins. Aglow in the glass, a table by the fire, waiting slow cooked beef.

This wine distils the essence of our Heathcote terroir, letting the vine suck the goodness from ancient, red soils and get its delicious fruit into the bottle with the minimum of stress. It was the driest winter and spring in our memory, restricting vine development and forcing it to squeeze all its flavour into a small crop, ending with great vintage conditions. Splash some into a glass alongside a dish of lamb shanks to discover the layered ripe flavours, black fruit aromas and robust structure - a winter wonderland.

We utilize traditional winemaking practices such as small fermentation tanks, natural fermentation (i.e. no yeast additions) and gravity feeding. Whilst this can be quite labour intensive, we believe it ensures the preservation of natural fruit flavours and the Heathcote terroir character. As with all varieties produced at Sanguine Estate, the grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and then naturally fermented with wild indigenous yeasts in small open fermenters. The wine is then transferred via gravity (to avoid pump shock) to predominantly French oak barriques (approximately 15% new) and left to mature for approximately 12 months.
