SKU: 2016 Heathcote Shiraz Collection

Revisiting a classic vintage from Heathcote Estate, we have re-released some rare gems from our museum cellar.

Valued at $365, special Christmas price $330. 

Enclosed in this mixed six pack is 3 bottles of 2016 Heathcote Estate Single Vineyard Shiraz and 1 bottle each of 2016 Block F Shiraz, 2016 Block C Shiraz and 2016 Shiraz Pressings. 

The 2016 vintage was exceptional in Heathcote, with all the makings of one of our finest. One of our coldest winters in recent memory was followed by a warm and dry spring, with perfect, even set and growth. The warm, dry and consistent conditions prevailed throughout summer, resulting in highly concentrated small berries.

Winemaker Notes
“The 2016 vintage was always a favourite of the winemaking team, it’s also the year we fine-tuned our winemaking approach. The 2016 was the first wine that was bottled earlier than in the past - after 12 months in barrel, instead of 18 months. This was also the year the use of 500L puncheons was extended across the Heathcote Estate Shiraz. And thirdly, it is the year we really started to use more whole bunches across all ferments. These techniques have added finer tannins, more primary fruit and better balance. As you can see, six years on the integration and balance of the wines is testament to the continual search for perfection.” Tom Carson, winemaker
