Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Brilliant scarlet red

Aroma

Plenty of fruit aromas – cherry, lifted Viognier, mocha, and oak spice.

Palate

Nice weight to the wine, it is rich & round, with delicate integrated tannins. The wine is seamless, and has great length. Bright fresh fruit; plums, cherry (red and black) apricot from the Viognier, spicy French oak.

Cellaring

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

Winemaking Note

The 2009 growing season was extremely hot, but was managed by meticulous use of water, particularly during the extreme heat events. This prevented the grapes from shrivelling and becoming over-ripe, and kept the flavours of the fruit bright and vibrant.

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.
