Red Claw Heathcote Shiraz
Additional Cases: $0
- Want a reliable cellar filler that will keep getting better with age? The Red Claw Shiraz from Heathcote is a likely candidate, as this red is only just beginning to find its feet. It’s filled with the unique complexity garnered from ancient Cambrian soil and shows a swathe of black fruit, earth and spice on the nose. Amazing intensity on the palate with a great balance achieved between fruit, tannins and acid. 80
- Precise, bright dark berry fruit and lifted spice dominate the aromas, with underlying scents of pepper and subtle French oak. The palate is plush and silky, loaded with dark fruited shiraz intensity. Fine structure and excellent concentration.
James Halliday says:“
Strong colour; a medium to full-bodied shiraz with blackberry and plum to the fore, but with a strong platform of tannins (and a little French oak) to carry the wine over the remainder of the decade.
