Overview

A stopping place for Craven's coaches and lovers of Australia's finest wines.

This small winery in Heathcote has gone from strength to strength since it changed hands in 1997 and now has a loyal following. The Mail Coach shiraz is mainly shiraz sourced from several small vineyards in the Heathcote region with a splash of Viognier added for good measure.

Expert Reviews

"Excellent red-purple colour; a clean and smooth bouquet with black cherry/berry/plum plus well integrated oak, then a palate which is powerful, having a good depth of similar fruit to that of the bouquet, rounded up by assertive tannins which need time to resolve, but which seem likely to do so."

Winery Tasting Notes

Mail Coach is a Heathcote Shiraz with a touch of Viognier added for lift and length. Shiraz from six vineyard blocks blended to create a wine of intensity, length and structure typical of the Heathcote region.

Will cellar in the mid to long term but can be enjoyed now.

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.
