Feathered Friends Heathcote Shiraz Cabernet

an undeniably powerful wine, born from Heathcote’s ancient Cambrian soils. A ferrous whiff, the regional tattoo. A swirl of darker fruit accents, baking spice, liquorice back-strap, molten kirsch and iodine, too. Yet the Cabernet, while the underling in the blend, evinces a savoury authority, a gentle verdant whiff and a welcome frame of plush tannins, keeping the melee on the straight and narrow. A plume of saline freshness at the back end drives the length.

'way over-delivers for the price’

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.
