Even our winemakers have favourites. This single vineyard Shiraz from Heathcote has been selected for this special range because it’s a Shiraz with a flavour quite unique. This powerful and generous wine has rich dark berry flavours, plenty of spice and long, fine tannins for a smooth finish.

91/100 – Huon Hooke 01/07/2020


Vineyard Region: Heathcote
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 15%
Colour: It boasts a vibrant purple colour.
Aroma: Aromas of dark fruits especially blackberry with hints of spice and white pepper.
Palate: The spice follows through to the palate creating an elegant balance to the powerful dark fruit flavours. The tannins are fine grained and well integrated.
Peak Drinking: Until 2024

Recommended food pairings: This wine would work beautifully with a duck confit leg on garlic mash potato and white peppercorn red wine jus. Or why not try a spicy Italian meatball pasta? And for cheese, an aged pecorino with lavosh.

Growing Conditions: The grapes for this wine were grown in the Heathcote region of Central Victoria. The fruit was harvested from late February to early March at a range of baumé levels from 14.5 to 15.

Winemaker: Geoff Alexander

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. 91/100 – Deep, purple bold colour, with a bouquet of dried herbs and brown spices, essency, plum-cakey, the palate flavoured likewise, with a lean-ish, elegant structure with firm tannins and linear profile. A full-blown but quite stylish Shiraz.
