Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
The ancient red volcanic soils, which make Heathcote's topography so very unique, are source of a great national export, the most splendid vintages of internationally renowned Shiraz. Known as Cambrian, the bright red earth yields an astounding quality of fruit, bursting with intense peppery perfumes and lined with opulent tannins. Sourced from a single superior site, Taltarni is treated to a judicious measure of barrel ferments for richness and complexity, followed by an extravagant two years in a selection of the finest American oak barriques.
Deep purple, violet hues. A beautiful assortment of chocolate and vanilla aromas, seasoned by spice over sweet red berry notes and fresh ripe plums, reminiscent of grandma's tasty home made puddings. Exceptional structure, a well balanced wine supported by firm chalky tannins, immersed in luscious dark liqueured cherry ripe flavours. Full bodied and mouth coating, a lingering, berry drenched finish.
