Heathcote has become a well known region for producing great Shiraz, this wine fits in well. Dense ruby red in colour, clear and bright. The nose is complex with sweet blackcurrants, spicy vanilla along with a hint of smokiness. Surprisingly medium bodied, there is a great balance between the spice at the front, sweet fruit and tannins. Firm acid adds to the long finish leading to an overall well rounded wine. Enjoy now, but would benefit from 3 to 5 years in the cellar. Stephen Read.
