With this Grenache Shiraz blend we set out to take advantage of the great vintage 2017 fruit to make an easier drinking wine with shorter oak aging, Cotes du Rhone Style. While we expected the delicate elegance of the wine, the concentration actually surprised us and this wine has evolved into a more typical Heathcote II which will keep very well.
The colour is a vibrant purple, the notes are sour cherries but with a sweet undertone, almost caramel. As it opens in the glass, the wine turns more savoury with darker fruit on the nose and spices in the palate.
