Heathcote
Located to the north of the Great Dividing Range in Central Victoria, approximately an hour and a half’s drive from Melbourne, Heathcote is well known for their award winning Shiraz wines, which is characterized in this region by a deep dark ruby colour with a rich silky tannins. The wine region is situated between Bendigo and Goulburn Valley and borders New South Wales to the north. The grapevines of Heathcote are planted along the sides of the hills of Mount Camel. Due to the elevation of the terrain, the cool winds keep the grapes cool and the temperature regulated which aids in a slow and steady process of producing only the finest wines. Another important factor that aids in growing the grapes is the calcium rich Cambrian soil that has good water retention capabilities. Because of this, the wineries of Heathcote rarely need to irrigate their vineyards. Due to these favourable conditions, the wines from Heathcote tend to be extremely rich and flavourful.

Andrew Caillard MW
Medium deep crimson. Intense fragrant blackberry pastille aromas with herb garden ginger liquorice notes. Well concentrated blackberry, liquorice flavours, ginger oak complexity and underlying savoury notes, fine grainy al dente tannins and underlying mineral acidity. Still elemental but buoyant with plenty of viscosity and underlying supple structure. Drinking well now but will reward further cellaring.
