Heathcote is synonymous with big juicy reds and internationally recognised for its phenomenal Shiraz, vintage after vintage. Everything coming out of Heathcote turns to gold - we’re big believers in the myth that the growers in the region have a Midas Touch.
Experts soberly describe the nutrient rich soils and a soil composition that makes it ideal for vine drainage and cultivation. Likewise, prospectors during the Victorian Gold Rush scrambled to get their shovels into the soil and uncover the riches embedded into the alluvial veins running through the numerous Gold Field Commons scattered throughout the region.
The climate and topography of Heathcote really lends itself to outstanding Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vintages. You can comfortably expect rich, fragrant, full bodied and hints of spice from these Heathcote specialities. The even rainfall yield and consistent cool climate helps add depth and juicy freshness to these awesomely big and remarkable wines.
"Highly perfumed, with viognier driving its orange blossom fragrance. The palate is very expressive, with viognier's exuberance well-contained by crisp acidity and light textureadding further restraint. A bright, freshly minted wine. Great fruity intensity plus a slight, attractive skinsy character.
Excellent grip and attack on the palate. Love this!" - Australian Gourmet Traveler
