Even our winemakers have favourites. This 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.

Description

Vineyard Region: Heathcote
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 14.5%
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 2025

Recommended food pairings: This wine would work beautifully with a sesame beef and snow pea stir-fry on classic ramen noodles. Or why not try homemade tagliatelle with smoked eggplant and tomato. And for cheese, an aged pecorino with lavosh.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “Brown Brothers has always been proud of the work of its small kindergarten winery in developing small batches of interesting/alternative varieties. The Winemaker’s Series gives winemakers the chance to keep small parcels of wine separate. This one is a real charmer, plummy and approachable right now, adorned in brilliant purple hues and Heathcote lifted aromatics, anise and dried herbs. The seasoning (via both French and American oak) is nicely downplayed. Lively and fresh, it’s a wine made for the table.”
