Expert Reviews

Good colour; a complex bouquet of plum, herb and spice leads into a well-structured, medium-bodied palate with nicely balanced fruit, oak and tannin inputs. Drink to 2020. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2010)

Vibrant medium ruby red in colour.

Aroma

Rich mocha and vanillian oak are integrated into a bright berry fruit laden aromas of raspberry, cherry and plums.

Delicate tannins make this wine easily approachable, with flavours of cherries, blackcurrants, plums and liquorice. The wine has an excellent length and persistence.

Cellaring Potential

This wine may be enjoyed now, or be cellared in the short term.

Winemaking Note

This wine is created to be approachable and enjoyable whist young, with the typical flavours, structure and tannin one comes to expect from a Heathcote Shiraz. The 2009 shows the intensity in fruit flavours and length of the warm growing season.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Uniquely positioned in the main street of Heathcote, Heathcote Winery holds a surprise for many of its visitors. The Cellar Door and adjacent Art Gallery are situated in the main street of Heathcote, in a restored miners produce store built by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune.

Few would then expect to find a fully functioning winery directly behind the Cellar Door!!

Heathcote Winery produced its first vintage in 1983 and now specialises in the production of premium shiraz with the release of the 2006 vintage of the acclaimed Mail Coach shiraz marking the Winery's 11th vintage.

In 1997 the winery was purchased by an independent group of wine enthusiasts led by Stephen Wilkins. Stephen and his partners share a passionate commitment to produce wines reflective of the Heathcote Region but distinctly Heathcote Winery. The wines attest to this commitment, delivering concentrated fruit aromas and flavours and intense colour, but with a finishing elegance enhanced by splashes of viognier.
