Deep purple with distinct deep violet edges. Richer in fruit flavors, this wine displays a beautiful assortment of chocolate and vanilla aromas supported by big sweet berry red berries and fresh ripe plums, reminiscent of
grandma's tasty home made jam. Exceptional structure, a well-balanced wine with soft
chalky tannins and immersed with luscious dark cherry ripe flavours. Full bodied with a lasting enticing palate.
Serving and cellaring suggestions: Released in limited quantities, Taltarni Heathcote Shiraz is a rich flavored wine to enjoy young and fresh. A splendid match with roast meats and an ideal partner for a cheese platter.
Cellaring: 10 years +
"Great colour; shows the depth of flavour without excessive alcohol possible in Heathcote; blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate, with ripe tannins and oak seamlessly integrated. Screwcap.
Australian Wine Companion
"The richness of this wine shows in the color, deep as black cherries with a bright edge in the glass. The dark cherry impression follows through in the taste, a bold, supple wine with tannins that add a mineral edge to the texture. It grows smokier with air, balanced between tannin and fruit in a textural pleasure that lasts."
Wine & Spirits
"Well done Shiraz, carefully made and judiciously oaked, with vanilla and cedar accenting blackberry, plum and black olive flavors. It’s moderately tannic on the finish, where it adds some coffee-like nuances as well. Drink 2010–2018."
