About

About The 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.

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!

About Joshua Cooper

Joshua Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper, the founders of the acclaimed Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges.

A young winemaker on the rise, Josh is working with fruit from outside the family plot to craft his own suite of low-intervention wine. The growers he works with from across central Victoria farm with a like-minded philosophy of organic farming and sustainability.

The wines have a delicacy and unforced feel to them. Josh makes only a small amount of each wine and they are in high demand from those who want to get in early on the next generation of Cooper. He is one to watch closely as his own style and craftsmanship continue to evolve.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

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. - Different Drop Wine team

Additional Info

From The Producer

I reckon its a bit more black cherry and violet than the '15, and a bit higher acid. Lots of spice etc still. Lots of structure. Same deal as the other 16's with the intensity from the low year and earlier harvest.
 
Its also first year I've managed to use larger format oak for it (which was good timing to keep as much freshness as possible in 16) so there was one 700l 3yo demi muid, and just two ~20yo burgundy piece.
 
109 doz total due to smaller vintage.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
Closure : DIAM Cork
Drink Until : 2030
