Heathcote is rapidly becoming renowned as one of the best regions for cooler climate Shiraz and the 2015 Humis Vineyard Shiraz is an excellent example of such a premium, cooler climate Shiraz.
This wine has a medium depth of colour with powerful aromas of plums and pepper on the bouquet. It also has a tight, restrained palate featuring smooth, rich, plummy flavours with a nice hint of black pepper.
This great Shiraz finishes with a young, tight, fine grained tannin finish that lingers and augurs well for a long future.
Whilst very enjoyable now, this wine will continue to evolve and develop over the next 3-5 years to become much more velvety and complex. It is truly “a keeper”.
This wine now makes an ideal accompaniment to rich, opulent food dishes. Then, as it mellows with age it will evolve into being a great accompaniment to dishes of medium-richness.
Our second Shiraz release from the block no.2. Planted in 2011 following the Carménère. The clone used for our Shiraz planting is sourced from old Tahbilk vines known for there deep rubyesque colour and savoury flavours.
