- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
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.

Heathcote’s reputation is for big Shiraz. And they do it so well. But the times they are a changin’ with Italian varieties such as Fiano, Sangiovese, Nero d’Avola and Sagrantino all finding themselves well at home in the ancient Cambrian soils.
Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
