Inaugural release of our 100% certified organic, preservative-free wine from Heathcote Estate.
Our shiraz vines are planted on deep red clay soils over bedrock, ancient Cambrian stone and quartz rock visible.
A long bone-chilling winter in Heathcote led into a mild and suitably wet spring. Soil moisture was key to getting the season off to this great start. Mild conditions continued throughout the summer and the harvest didn’t commence until the very last day of February, roughly two weeks later than average. Picking in the first weeks of autumn is ideal and the quality of the fruit was as good as we could wish for.
