Located in central Victoria, while viticulture in Heathcote began with the gold rush around 1860’s, all plantings bar one were destroyed by Phylloxera around 1900. Modern viticulture began in the 1950’s through to the 1970’s with the establishment of Paul Osicka in 1955, Jasper Hill in 1975 and Heathcote Winery in 1978. Geologically the key to Heathcote is a deposit of Cambrian red soils which begins 20 kilometres south east of the town of Heathcote proper then north running along the Mount Ida Range for 60 kilometres. The dry arid conditions make water stress an ongoing issue and necessitate irrigation, though more established vineyards with deeper roots are able to avoid these issues. Temperatures range from warm to hot summer days with cool through cold nights idea for the production of full bodied red grape varieties such as shiraz, and most notably of recent history Sangiovese.
Shiraz from mature dry grown vineyards is typically full bodied, dense, mouth filling with fruit profiles of blackberry, black and red cherry, leather, spice and liquorice with mouth coating density and ripe soft tannins which age gracefully. Outstanding producers include Jasper Hill, Red Eagle, Greenstone and Yabby Lake.
Sangiovese and Nebbiolo have met with recent success in Heathcote. Chalmers wines have established a number of Heathcote vineyards with a range of varieties indigenous to Italy. Greenstone, a venture between David Gleave MW, Tuscan winemaker Alberto Antonini and former Brown Brothers viticulturist Mark Walpole, established plantings of Sangiovese, Syrah and mourvèdre on the Cambrian soils. They believe the Heathcote climate is perfect for Sangiovese, with close climatic conditions to Tuscany and many of the best Heathcote Sangiovese are produced from Greenstone Vineyard fruit. Outstanding producers include Greenstone, Vinea Marson and Foster e Rocco.

Heathcote Estate Shiraz 2019A total of 5 individual blocks and their sub-sections were hand picked and handled separately in the winery (a total of 17 batches of wine) with fermentation in a mix of open and closed fermenters with some whole bunches included, mlf, maturation in French oak puncheons and 6250L cuves. A wine that needs room to move, so break out the decanter. Heathcote shiraz on a higher, finer plane to the usual, boasting tension and refinement. Gorgeous deep purple hue with lifted florals of violet and bramble, spiced-up plums and black cherries. A most complex youngster, still yet to do the full reveal, but with high potential. Long, fine-grained tannins are crying out for time in the cellar. JAMES HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION2015shirazAustralia404$50.00 As low as $45.00
Heathcote Estate Shiraz 2018
Part of the Yabby Lake stable, this claimed a gold medal at last years wine show (and its older sister, the unreleased 2019 claimed a gold this year). Located just outside the town of Heathcote towards the lower end of the region, cooler nights provide a freshness to this staining wine.
‘Brooding and darkly fruited, this is a powerful and regal expression of Heathcote. Dense and dark, spicy oak intermingles with a ripe and rich core. Suave tannins are present, wrapping around the fruit as a support not an overwhelm. An impressive and complex full bodied shiraz.’ GABRIELLE POY, Chair of the Heathcote Wine Show2015shirazAustralia404$51.00 As low as $45.90

Tyrrells Vat 8 Shiraz Cabernet 2017If you put this in the cellar the chances of you being disappointed when it reaches maturity are almost zilch. It has character and balance and, from such an excellent year, has enough fruit to keep the engine humming along, long time. A beautiful medium-weight, filigreed wine. Drink by 2035. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, James Halliday Wine Companinon
This has a composed, compact and soulful mid-weight style to it, plenty of black fruits and dark stony aromas, dried woody spices too. The palate has a dark essence-like spiced plum and dark cherry core, tannins roll smooth, even and purposeful, smoothly groomed, holds freshness and delivers incredible depth of flavour. Long and strong. Drink now and for 10+ years. NICK STOCK, www.jamessuckling.com2017shirazAustralia404$81.00 As low as $72.90
Jasper Hill Georgia & Friends Shiraz 2020Lifted aromas and flavours of complex, mixed ripe red and black berries with typical spiciness. If you can call a 15% alcohol wine elegant, the resulting wine has the expected magenta colour, with the normal fabulous balance between high acidity and supple tannins. Not quite as massive as some previous vintages by deliberately picking slightly earlier, this is delicious now as an ideal match for red meat / duck dishes and also has medium term cellaring capability.
