2016 Mail Coach Shiraz



Product Description

Our winery is situated in the historic building where the pioneer, Tom Craven established the region’s mail service in the 1850s. As the people of the central Victorian goldfields expected Tom’s Mail Coach to consistently deliver, we have crafted this wine to consistently deliver what makes Heathcote a world class producer of premium Shiraz: richness, power, spice, and elegance.

Grown predominantly on the ancient red Cambrian soils, this wine is made from a blend of our two vineyards. All the fruit is basket pressed and then aged in a combination of French and American oak. Full of deep dark fruit, we add 2% viognier to add an extra layer of finesse.

2016 saw a hot, dry and low yielding vintage that produced exceptional richness and concentration. This vintage will appeal to those inclined toward a more traditional expression of Shiraz, bursting with flavours of dark plum, currant, blackberry, dark chocolate and spice.
