An Irish cobbler named Reilly settled into the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro circa 1856. He converted a stone barn into a homestead cottage. Reilly's Cottage served as the local cobbler's shop in the centre of the bustling town, which had boomed after the establishment of salubrious slate quarries. Almost 140 years later, the cottage has been restored to its former glory by relatives of Reilly, the family Ardill, once again it is a hive of activity, home to the eminent and award winning range of Reilly..

Chandon Domaine Heathcote Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
Shiraz from the Chandon Colbinabbin Vineyard at Heathcote, an auspicious confluence of terroir and clime unlike any other in the world. Deep ferrous soils punish the vines into digging deep for their moisture, infusing grapes with the most ardent, stately tannins. The peaks of Mount Carmel Range further serve to conduct chilling southerlies along fortuitous longitudes, very like the Mistral winds of Vallée du Rhône. Easterly aspects moderate afternoon heat, so essential for an idyllic ripening of Shiraz grapes with extraordinary concentration of flavour.

Bunches of estate grown grapes are destemmed and crushed, chilled and treated to three days of cold soak. Regular pumpovers are applied to ferments throughout the course of vinification, gently extracting colour, flavour and tannin while building body in the wine. A portion is transferred to oak and fermented to dryness, another is set aside and settled for several days of rest, a third remains on skins for an extended maceration. After pressing, all parcels are run to a mix of seasoned and new French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and maturation. After fourteen months, the best barrels are assembled into the finished wine and sent for a further six months of age before bottling.
Deep red colour, bright purple hues. Radiant perfumes of berry compote, blueberries and blood plum fruits, liquorice and liqueurs, seasoned by Asian five spice, cacao and carob. Juicy berry fruit flavours flood the palate, piquant spiced plums, cured meats and savoury complexity. Fine, silky tannins throughout, a memorable, everlasting finish. A match to game roasts and corned beef.
