Appearance: Deep red with purple edge.
Bouquet: Ripe dark fruit aromas with fragrance, spice, plum and black pepper.
Palate: Plump dark fruits, terrific concentration, gently layered flavours, fine tannin, soft finish.
Vintage conditions: 2014 was a terrific season in Heathcote with warm, dry conditions and balanced crops.
Winemaking: Fruit is sourced from carefully selected parcels of Shiraz grown on the red volcanic soils of Northern Heathcote. Fruit is harvested at 14.0-14.5 baume to achieve a balance of fruit ripeness and balanced acidity. Grapes are de-stemmed and crushed into both static and rotary fermenters. The resultant wine is then fermented for up to two weeks on skins prior to pressing and racking. A third of the blend is matured for five months in older casks and the remainder stays in tank for freshness and brightness.
Cellaring: Terrific now or enjoy over the next 4-6 years.

Red meats - T-Bone steaks; stews; lamb shanks
