Winemaker Notes

Full-bodied and round in texture with great depth and persistence, the palate offers raspberries, earth, and some smoky oak characters. This elegant Heathcote wine lingers impressively with its seductive black berry flavors, refined tannins and long, dry finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Occam’s Razor Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color, giving slightly closed blueberry aromas with some cinnamon powder, white pepper, tree bark and cedar. It is well structured with firm, chewy tannins and crisp acid supporting the full-bodied, powerful fruit. Finishing long, drink this wine from 2010 to 2017+.
JS 91
James Suckling
Cracked blackpepper with dark fruits and spices on the nose. Full and flamboyant with lots of fruit and spicy finish. Verges on jammy but interesting. Drink now.

Occam's Razor, Australia
Occam’s Razor is a label owned by Emily, daughter of Jasper Hill’s owners, Ron and Elva Laughton.

A teacher by training, a traveller by choice and a vigneron by preference and practice, Emily made her first vintage in 2001, buying grapes from independent local growers, Andrew and Melissa Conforti, from the neighbouring town of Mia Mia, within the Heathcote wine region. ( Andrew is also Vineyard Supervisor with Jasper Hill, so there is a connection. )

"Like Dad, my philosophy is to keep it uncomplicated and don’t muck around with it too much."

"William of Occam was a 13th century English philosopher who devised quite a few kooky theories. One of his better ones states that the simplest explanation is generally the most correct; in other words, cut away the b... sh.. and get back to basics"

Emily increasingly shares the wine-making duties with her father and sees a long future ahead for herself, her label and Jasper Hill. Occam’s Razor is produced in small, highly prized quantities based on the same bio-dynamic principles as Jasper Hill. The 2009 vintage is the her ninth.

Heathcote Wine

Victoria, Australia

Historically some of Australia’s most lucrative gold country, today Heathcote maintains its esteemed reputation as a source of country’s best red wines. The rolling countryside of ancient reddish brown soils bordered by mountain ranges that funnel cool air into the region during the growing season create some of Australia’s most deeply-hued and impressively layered Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
