Heathcote

Appearance

Deep crimson in colour

Bouquet

Rich aromas of dark berries and plums with a hint of spice and mocha.

Palate

Dense dark berries with beautifully ripe tannins and notes of French oak.

Vintage Conditions

Good early winter rains throughout June and July replenished soil moisture. August was dry, and the vines shot into life in September with a nice even budburst considering the cooler than average minimum spring temperatures.  Welcome rain fell during flowering with no major impact on fruit set.

Warmer than average maximum temperatures were seen throughout late spring and early summer, encouraging ideal ripening conditions. The weather pattern then changed, turning cool after a rain event on 9 January and we experienced cooler temperatures throughout the month.  This was ideal weather conditions, allowing the vines to maintain leaf function and general health as we approached the ripening period.

February saw a return to above average temperatures and this combined with very healthy canopies brought on fruit maturity beautifully.

Winemaking

The fruit was crushed, destemmed and fermented using wild yeast in open pots which were hand plunged twice daily and then allowed to rest post fermentation for 10 days before being pressed and matured in a blend of French Oak barrels.

Alcohol

14%

Cellaring

This is a wine with great structure and complexity and will reward cellaring over the next 5 years plus.
