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.
A wine that reflects our continued desire to produce wines of great finesse from a region historically known for powerhouse reds. The Syrah No. 2 comes mostly from short- and medium-length macerations (one to two weeks) and is made with 100% whole cluster, natural yeast fermentations and no sulphur additions until well after malolactic. Bottling occurred after 12 months aging in neutral oak and in a range of different formats: 1000lt, 2000lt, barriques, 500lt and 600lt. The result is a spicy, medium-bodied 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.

LS Merchants Red Blend
A favourite blend. Nice easy fruits and drinking, great pizza wine.
“…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…
Made from low cropped, hand harvested premium fruit taken from a select vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley. Aged in French oak barriques for 6 months.
Sensational Chateauneuf-du-pape from the fantastic 2016 vintage. Subtle and elegant with soft tannin and a sweet peppery finish. ????
