SKU: 2021 Heathcote Estate Shiraz Gift Box

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.

After the long dry spell through 2019-2020, the 2021 season thankfully started with a nice wet winter, replenishing the water supply and ground water.  Spring was mild and uneventful, and the summer was another relatively mild one, without any serious heat spikes.  Harvest of shiraz commenced on the 17th of February which is bang-on average in recent times.



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% of all batches receiving 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
The 2021 vintage was exellent, producing a classic Heathcote Estate Shiraz. Characterised by its remarkable balance, concentration and elegance, this intense and structured wine has lifted perfume, layers of flavour, dark fruits, spice and a long, seamless, persistent finish. Cellar for optimum reward.
