Region Heathcote

Heathcote is situated about 100 km north of Melbourne in Central Victoria at altitudes between 160-380 metres. This is classic rolling Australian countryside punctuated by eucalypts and rounded hills. The defining feature of the region is the ‘Heathcote red snake’ a strip of ancient, deep, red Cambrian soils with good water holding capacity, imparting a distinct and unique flavour profile to Shiraz, the superstar of the region. The region is warm and strongly continental with low rainfall, but enjoys an even temperature range during ripening. Founded in the 1850’s Heathcote was originally a gold rush town. Vines were planted in the 1860’s, but were subsequently decimated by phylloxera with modern day plantings only re-established during the 1960’s. Although best known for its rich tannic powerful Shiraz, Heathcote also produces a wide range of varieties including Riesling, Chardonnay and Viognier alongside the Bordeaux varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Emerging varieties of Sangiovese and Tempranillo also show great promise.

Winery CARLEI ESTATE

Langton’s Selections Carlei Estate Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, Carlei Estate Heathcote Shiraz Sergio Carlei, a chiropractor by trade and a winemaker by vocation, and father of seven children, is a first generation Italian with a remarkable joie de vivre. His winery and vineyard is located in Upper Beaconsfield, 50km east of Melbourne. It is partially a negociant-type operation sourcing Shiraz from Heathcote, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Yarra Valley and aromatic varieties from the Cardinia Ranges. His positive energy flows into his wines. Carlei’s own vineyard is biodynamic. He is an early Australian proponent of this philosophical method of viticulture/farming first introduced by Rudolf Steiner. Carlei Estate wines are his top offerings. These are all thoughtful beautifully made wines based on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. They appear on the market, but these are not wines that should be cellared beyond the medium term. The Greens Vineyard range and Signature wines
