"95 Points. A total of 5 individual blocks and their sub-sections were hand picked and handled separately in the winery (a total of 17 batches of wine) with fermentation in a mix of open and closed fermenters with some whole bunches included, mlf, maturation in French oak puncheons and 6250L cuves. A wine that needs room to move, so break out the decanter. Heathcote shiraz on a higher, finer plane to the usual, boasting tension and refinement. Gorgeous deep purple hue with lifted florals of violet and bramble, spiced-up plums and black cherries. A most complex youngster, still yet to do the full reveal, but with high potential. Long, fine-grained tannins are crying out for time in the cellar. $50. 13.5% alc. Drink by 2027. Screwcap" - Jeni Port, winecompanion.com.au.
