About

When treated right, the ancient soils of Heathcote produce stunning fruit. Something clicked in the growing and making of this wine, this 2014 Heathcote Shiraz from Damien North is singing.

A quarter was fermented as whole bunches, a quarter went to new French oak, there’s nothing too fancy about the winemaking but the end result is a refined and sublime depiction of this unique slice of the Australian wine-growing landscape.

James Halliday offered this in his 96 point review, “Despite its intensity it is elegant and medium-bodied.” and Mike Bennie called it “… a cracking Heathcote Shiraz… bouncy and frisky, playful and easy to drink.”

This is premium yet playful, a combination you don’t often find in Shiraz. Gorgeous stuff.

What It Tastes Like

“Spice, cedary oak and a plum/blackberry melange start the journey on the bouquet; the palate is intense and focused on the same path, with highlights of licorice and spice. Despite its intensity it is elegant and medium-bodied.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
