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.

The 2017 vintage saw good yields that produced a rich and elegant expression of Mail Coach Shiraz. Dark berry fruit and spice aromas fill the glass, which flows through to the palate to meld with fine oak for smooth tannins leading to a full and lasting finish.

The 2017 vintage will not disappoint.
