Dark berries or plums, cedar and spice notes sum up the aromas and flavors you can expect from this Heathcote Shiraz. It’s medium to full in body, and while it’s not overly lush, neither is it overly lean—making it a balanced drink with moderate complexity. The firm finish suggests cellaring another year or two, or pairing it with grilled or roasted meats.
Earthy and seductive, with strawberry and espresso up front, followed by a mouthwatering palate of pomegranate and black cherry fruit. Good tannin and acid structure. Drink now to 2013.
