2018 Mail Coach Shiraz

6 bottles: $199.00


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. The fruit is hand-harvested and whole berry fermented in individual batches to preserve the clonal diversity. French and American oak is used to add structure, elegance and spice. Full of deep dark concentrated fruit, we add 2% viognier to add an extra layer of complexity.

Vintage 2018 delivered warm days and cool nights, providing a long, slow maturation period. The result is intensely dark berry fruit aromatics that leads on to a palate full of flavour. This is further enhanced by sweet oak spice that is held together with firm structural tannins providing complexity and layering.

The 2018 vintage will not disappoint.
