Armchair Critic Heathcote Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Everyone has an opinion on wine, which essentially makes us all armchair critics. The combination of vineyard site and variety is of critical importance to the Armchair Critic philosophy. Here is the result, a wine of immense character and complexity displaying why Heathcote and Shiraz make such a natural fit. You’ll find dark berries and scintillating spice before a bold palate of black fruits carried by a silken bed of tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

The nose is still knitting together with primeval berry, spice and tar aromas evident. The palate is exciting with slick black fruit rippling through its core. The wine is pleasingly warm and tarry with lots of fruit power and yet a fine skeleton of tannins on which it all rests. The finish is dry and impressively long.

Get our of your Armchair and order this right now, because you won't find thirty-year-old, low-yielding Heathcote vines producing a definitively regional, poised, textural and concentrated wine at this price again.
