Joshua Cooper is another of the younger brigade of Victorian winemakers doing really exciting things, and this unique look at Heathcote Syrah/Shiraz is a bit of a head-turner. It's definitely not Heathcote as we know it. Coming from a higher altitude vineyard in the far south of the region, it's a much more 'cool climate' expression, with the addition of granite soils leading Josh to compare the style to the more aromatic, medium-bodied, meaty Syrahs of the Northern Rhone Valley. Made in tiny quantities with Josh's gentle natural approach and without any new oak, this is a Syrah that is at once refreshing and thought-provoking. Well worth a look!

What it Tastes Like

Meaty, spicy, squished blueberry fruit and bramble. It's dark and moody yet trim in style. The tannins refined and persistant, a herbal tail spiked with white pepper swishes through the finish. Such an interesting expression of the region. Unique yet extremely classy. Fine Syrah.
