Another fantastic wine from Monterra and former winemaker of Grange Mike Farmilo. Lots going on here with cherries, red apples, redcurrant, red liquorice, white pepper and herbs all in tow. It is unashamedly medium bodied and offers great intensity of fruit, savoury notes and excellent structure.

“…this is the richest and most distinguished ’11 vintage red from Eastern Australia I have tasted in the more than 6000 wines to pass across my palate this year.” James Halliday 97Pts Even more ‘European’ in style than the inaugural 2010 release, the 2011 Graillot Syrah…
This wine is named as a tribute to Trevor and Marilyn’s two granddaughters, in acknowledgement of their passion and excellence in ballet and dancing. It’s play on the French ballet term ‘en pointe’, to stand on ones toes in full extension – no easy feat – and something both granddaughters can do with ease and grace.
After back to back sell-out successes for all three consecutive releases of this wine, our 2019 vintage of On Point Pinot Grigio has been bottle as soon as possible, ensuring we capture all those wonderful bunch-fresh aromas and flavours for you.
Syrah, closer in weight to many Northern Rhône wines than what we typically expect from Heathcote. It offers loads of spice, energy and drive, and the complex aromas and flavours of dark plum, olive, bay leaf and tobacco.
