    Winemaker's Notes:

    A deep purple colour with distinct deep violet edges and a beautiful assortment of chocolate and vanilla aromas supported by big sweet berry red berries and fresh ripe plums. Released in limited quantities, Taltarni Heathcote Shiraz is a rich flavoured wine to enjoy young and fresh. Cellaring for 10 years and more.

    The 500 million year old volcanic soil that makes up Heathcote's unique topography has long been regarded as the reason for such exceptional shiraz. Known as Cambrian earth, the red soil of Heathcote, like the Terra Rossa soil of Coonawarra, is noted for producing wines hallmarked by intense fruit characters and chocolate mint tones.

    Sourced from a single vineyard, Taltarni Heathcote Shiraz is cold soaked, fermented on skins for 11 days, then undergoes malo-lactic fermentation in American hogsheads. It is then matured for 16 months in American oak. It is crafted to reflect the distinctive style of the Heathcote terroir and set to complement Taltarni's great family of superb Victorian red wines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright colour; backward and unevolved black fruit bouquet, with a strong savoury mineral streak at its core; full-bodied, dark, dense and brooding palate, with precise red and black fruits and fine tannin to conclude.

    Not a big fan of this one, but it could be because it was a Syrah/Shiraz combo. I'm more a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a screw cap bottle and I'm just not ready to give up the corks yet!
