This 2018 Tellurian GSM is another high quality example of Heathcote red; offering lifted aromas of raspberry, cherry, plum and wild strawberry combine with subtle savoury, earthy notes. Medium bodied palate highlighted by vibrant red fruits, elegant texture and mouthfeel, with soft, plush tannins and well balanced acidity providing a moreish finish.
"Heathcote blend of grenache (46%), shiraz (36%) and Mourvedre. It’s a ripe, mid-weight, warm-hearted red with fruit in all the right places and spice as a complement. It doesn’t put any steps wrong.It’s textural without being syrupy and the oak is pitched at low levels. There’s a peppercorn/graphite character too which works well in context. Earth, redcurrant and florals. A handy spread of unobtrusive tannin. Not bad at all. 91-92. 91 Points Tasted: Nov19 14.5% alc. $28 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2026+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
The team at Tellurian headed by the highly acclaimed winemaker, Tobias Ansted, produce some of the region's finest examples of Shiraz. Tellurian's Heathcote Pastiche Shiraz is produced from grapes sourced from the Touhey family vineyard that are blended with Tellurian's own estate vineyard.
Tellurian's flagship 'Tranter' Heathcote Shiraz is produced solely from fruit from their own vineyard on Tranter Road, Toolleen, on the western side of the Mt Camel range. The vineyard is planted on the deep, rich, Cambrian soil for which the region is renowned, and we believe this is a major contributor to the flavour intensity and richness of the wine.
Over the past couple of year's Tellurian's wines have received wide-spread acclaim, firmly establishing themselves as a rising star of the Heathcote wine region.
