This is an exceptionally generous wine (explains why the sparrow is fat perhaps?), brick red in colour with a straightforward nose and palate making it easy to drink and easier to enjoy. Fragrant with dense dark fruits and a certain forest-floor-earthiness dominating the aroma and translating well into the palate. Cradled by well-developed tannins the texture is smooth all the way through to the finish.
From the Winery
Heathcote in Central Victoria is blessed with deep red Cambrian soil, which has excellent water retention and an abundance of minerals. Located in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, the region is slightly elevated and receives very consistent rainfall throughout the year. This virtually eliminates the need for irrigation and produces fruit with characteristically inky, dark colour and wonderfully concentrated flavour.
This wine is made from single vineyard handpicked Shiraz. Fermentation takes place in large stainless steel open fermenters. It is then left to mature in 20% new French oak barriques and 80% 2 and 3 year old barriques for approximately 12 months to develop into an elegant European style Shiraz.
