VINEYARD REGION: Heathcote, Victoria
THE WINE: The deep rich red colour hints at the intensity of this wine. The nose is full of regional ripe plum and dark cherries with a pinch of white pepper and sweet vanillin. The flavours carry onto the palate which is full of big, soft fruit, balanced by regional minerality, elegant oak and natural acid. The result is a classic Heathcote Shiraz, a rich wine with a complex and fresh structure.
