Description

Method

To assemble this fruit-bomb we included our premium, minimal irrigation parcel (approx 10%) with another exclusively dry-grown Shiraz (5%). Subtle oak use left room for the fruit to take centre stage.

Conclusion

The Heathcote terroir is sought for the structure and spiciness it imparts in Shiraz. We keep it simple, letting the red soil do the talking in creating a full-bodied, silky-smooth Shiraz.
