Description

Method

Produced in a ‘drinks well young’ style, due to cold soaking of the grapes prior to ferment (to lower the intensity of tannin extraction) & whole berry fermentation to yield a plush, juicy, fruit-forward wine with soft tannins.

Results

Our 2021 vintage highlights the Heathcote flavor profile – red and black fruits, Mulberry, Raspberry and Pepper. The soft, juicy palate, incorporates French toasty oak spice, nut and slight Vanilla. An approachable wine with a full, round finish.

Conclusion
