About

Heathvale has a long history in the Eden Valley. The vineyard was established in the mid - late 1800's by William and Fanny Heath, the property now in the loving hands of Trevor and Faye March is experiencing a second coming. Some beautiful terroir given a new lease on life. It warms the cockles, it does. Trevor was convinced, that Sagrantino would do well on his plot. A 13 year saga followed, which was filled with heartache and belief until finally, this wine was realised. The 2012 looks pretty smart at the moment. Sag is not an easy variety to get right, but Trevor and his consultant winemaker Chris Taylor have done a cracking job here. It has balance and drinkability (two things that are rare in Aussie Sag) but still shows all the power and concentration the variety is noted for. James Halliday gave this vintage 92 points and suggested "Cellaring would not be a waste of time; this has plenty of promise."

What it Tastes Like

Curry spices, sweet amaro cherries, almost elegant in style for this blockbusting variety. Sweet and sour dark fruit, impeccable tannin structure, just goes and goes. The variety just eats up the oak. Sugared peanuts, got loads of power. Good style. Pretty impressive, all and all.
