Winemaking Note

The 2008 Mail Coach Shiraz (with a splash of Viognier – 1.8%) was harvested from three vineyards in Heathcote. Harvested at optimum ripeness when the tannins, acid, sugar and flavours were at their peak, the grapes were processed and fermented in individual batches. After fermentation, the wine was pressed before maturing in American and French barrels for up to 15 months, of which 35% were new.

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.
