SKU: 2021 Heathcote Estate Shiraz

This Single Vineyard Shiraz comes from carefully selected sections of our family's vineyard, Heathcote Estate in Drummonds Lane, Heathcote in Central Victoria. The vineyard was planted in 1999 on the famous strip of 500 million year old Cambrian soil that defines the heart of the region.

The 2021 vintage in Heathcote was excellent, producing a classic Heathcote Estate Shiraz. A nice wet and cold winter, mild spring and relatively mild summer has produced a remarkable wine with great intensity and extract. Winemaker: Tom Carson



Winemaker Notes
Our five individual blocks and their various sections were handled separately in the winery and vintage 2021 created 15 unique batches of wine. The grapes were fermented in traditional open fermenters after gentle destemming, with 20% whole bunches. The wines were then pressed and transferred into 500L French Oak puncheons (20% new) for malolactic fermentation – some aged in traditional 6250L cuves. Racked twice during maturation, bottled February 2022. (Alc 13.5%)
Tasting Notes
Characterised by its remarkable concentration, this intense and structured wine has lifted perfume, layers of flavour, dark fruits, spice and a long, seamless, persistent finish. Cellared carefully, this wine will age gracefully for 10 years.
