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.
