Henry Best was a highly industrious merchant and butcher who serviced Ararat miners during the Victorian gold rush. He planted thirty hectares of vine along Concongella Creek in 1866 and constructed a commercial cellar wineworks which continue to process the most spectacular vintages until the present day. The heirloom plantings of Henry Best remain productive, as some of the most historically significant rootstock in the world. Home of the Jimmy Watson 2012 Trophy, Royal Sydney 2013 Australian Wine Of Year, James Halliday 2014 Wine of Year, Distinguished and Outstanding Langtons Classifications. Remarkable for a style that's all their own, chiselled, brooding and black. Best's Great Western endures as one of the new world's most preeminent, yet bewilderingly soft spoken viticultural estates.

Heathcote Winery Cravens Place Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Victoria
Not many country towns can boast a winery on the main street, but at Heathcote it's a part of the scenery. Heathcote is renowned throughout the world for producing much of Australia's finest Shiraz. Enter the Cravens Place, an elegant effort, stylish and quintessentially Heathcote. Sourced principally from sites at the warmer, northern periphery of Heathcote township, Craven's Place is fashioned to be a supple, bright and approachable wine. Ageing in choice oak barriques contributes to the complexity and allows the quality of Shiraz to realize its full potential.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
Heathcote Winery is meeting the demand for wines that are truly reflective of the region, but with the individual stamp of innovation and excellence. Low night time temperatures contribute to vine balance and excellent berry development. Picking is all done by hand, fruit is delivered to the winery where juices are extracted from the grapes by pumpover in closed tanks and hand plunging in open bins to extract optimum colour and tannin. The finished wine is matured sixteen months in a selection of French and American oak barriques.
Brilliant ruby red with purple hues. Lifted blueberry and forest fruits dominate the nose, over a backdrop of spicy vanillin and plums. Bright fruits fill the palate, framed by chewy, fine grained American and French oak and supported by crisp natural acidity. A lively, medium bodied Shiraz, fleshy and dense in flavour, Craven's Place finishes long with persistent primary fruit characters over supple tannins.
