Heathcote Shiraz 2015 

On Premise Only

 

From the opening whipcrack of the cap you’ll see the true magenta shades in the overture. The lights dim in the aromatic Big Top to a soft applause of plum, ripe cherries and slight anise.

The second act is a brilliant and complex juggling trick.

A smooth harmonious palate is tossed with plump fruit and tumbling French and American oak tannins.

 It’s an exhilarating high wire Shiraz that’ll have you shouting for an encore.

 

Vintage 

 

The 2014 vintage was moderate and dry, following on from a Winter where rainfall was not too over the top. The yields weren’t great due to frosts at the time of flowering, and then we had the opposite contrast in January and February causing a mad panic by harvest. We were grateful that the grapes weathered the storms - so to speak, and revealed a brightness and vibrancy that we can now applaud.

Winemaking

Our winemaking philosophy is one where the full expression of fruit is focussed on, and then calls on fine oak to support its style. Grapes are de-stemmed without crushing, and then allowed to macerate on skins for a few days before innoculation, and then fermented on skins for approximately 9 days before pressing. The wine is matured for 12 months prior to bottling, with French oak of which 30% is new.
