“Limited Release” Heathcote Shiraz
This wine is matured in French oak barrels for 17-23 months, depending on the vintage. We use a high percentage of new oak (40-80%) to produce this full bodied wine style. Typically the bouquet is of dark fruits and savoury oak and the palate is intense, with flavours of fresh, dark cherries and blackberries. The wine style is supported by silky tannins and has a long, soft, savoury finish.
The Limited Release is an elegant and perfectly balanced wine style which makes it exceptional drinking whilst young, with the structure to develop well into the future. We suggest serving this wine with rare meats including game, beef and lamb, slow cooked and marinated meats.
Bottled under screw cap and cork, when the vintage is amenable to both closures. The 2012 is bottled under screw cap only. The 2007 is bottled under cork only.
