Classic, smooth, yet intense Barossa shiraz. Very bright black and red fruits along with dark chocolate and plums on what is a lush and inviting nose. There’s richness on the palate, depth of flavour and spice too.
Another remarkable bargain made by former maker of Grange and 2 time Jimmy Watson Winner Mike Farmilo.

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.
Quite simply one of the finest examples of Australian Pinot Noir we have come across. The dry grown grapes lay within the Piccadilly Valley region of the Adelaide Hills below the top of Mount Lofty. Resulting in the perfect cool climate environment for Pinot Noir to thrive. Add to this the mastery of Adelaide Hills pioneering head winemaker Stephen George and we are left with what legendary Australian wine writer James Halliday refers to as “the one Grand Cru of the state”.
