Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels. The tradition began 1901 when Bill Redman, at the tender age of fourteen, made the journey to take up an apprenticeship at the John Riddoch wineworks and to labour amongst Coonawarra's founding vineyards. Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra. Husbanded by the 4th generation, parcels from the 1966 vines are assembled into the estate flagship The Redman... The velvet virtue of old coonawarra vines»

Heathcote Estate Block C Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
What defines Heathcote Estate Shiraz stylistically, is the sterling excellence of fruit, as treated to the old world vinification techniques which emulate the great growths of Burgundy and the Medoc. The intensely concentrated grapes of Block C are all hand picked and gently destemmed into traditional open top fermenters, a measure of whole bunches added for tannin richness. Hand plunged and pressed into 500 litre French oak puncheons for completion of malolactic and a term of age, its opulent, expansive palate, brimming with black fruits, milled spice and ripe, fleshy plum.

Heathcote Estate
Heathcote Estate was established exclusively for the production of one wine a single vineyard Shiraz

During the 1850s, Heathcote was the scene of fevered activity as an important gold field town and today Heathcote is best known for producing another rich and prized gem, Heathcote Shiraz. The rich red Cambrian soil and dry mild climate provide the idyllic foundation for producing world class Shiraz and are indeed the reason why Heathcote is considered one of Australia's pre-eminent regions for our most noted variety.

Heathcote Estate

Inspired by the amazing depth and character of Heathcote Shiraz, the Bialkower and Kirby families selected a rare and ideal location to produce an ultra-premium Shiraz to rival Australia's finest. Heathcote Estate was established in 1999 as an ultra premium producer solely focused on the production of one wine, a single vineyard Shiraz.

The Bialkower and Kirby families shared vision of excellence is reflected by their single-minded focus towards quality across all parts of the winemaking process.

Having grown up in the fine wine and food environment that was Melbourne in the 1960s and 70s, Robert Kirby has long been fascinated by fine wine, especially the soft and medium-bodied French varieties Pinot Noir and Shiraz. His childhood was also spent on the Mornington Peninsula , where his family owned cinemas and it was only natural that his first vineyard should have been in that region at Red Hill. By 1992 he planted 6 hectares at Cooralook and since then has planted a much larger vineyard at Tuerong Road Mooruduc.

Heathcote Estate

Louis Bialkower carried on a busy legal practice in Melbourne for many years, coming to wine on a professional basis in 1982 when he founded Yarra Ridge in the Yarra Valley and though that estate was sold to Beringer Blass in the 1990s, he has been continuously involved with wine since that time.
