Image placeholder American Oak Blend“American Oak Blend” Heathcote Shiraz

This wine is matured in American oak barrels for 18-21 months, depending on the vintage. We use a high percentage of new oak (60-100%) to produce this full-bodied wine style which is an earlier drinking style than the Limited Release. The bouquet typically displays dark plums, vanilla and sweet spicy oak and the palate is of intense lifted dark cherries, rich sweet plum and spicy vanilla oak.

This wine style is well balanced and has a soft, lingering after palate which makes it exceptional drinking early and well suited to medium term cellaring.

We suggest serving this wine with rare meats including game, beef and lamb, roast pork, flame grilled and marinated meats.
