Winery Tasting Notes

This is without doubt the best Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz since the great 1997 inaugural release. Opaque black crimson colour with deep black crimson hue. Perfumed nose of cedar, vanilla, plum, spice and blackberry. The palate is impressive, showing classic Heathcote density of flavour. Spice, blackberry, black pepper, plum and vanilla fill the mouth. Fine grained tannins, perfect balance followed by an exceptionally long black pepper aftertaste.
