Shiraz, Cabernet, Sangiovese, Malbec & Grenache from the northern part of the Heathcote G.I. in the sensational 2021 vintage, somehow we skipped the 2020 vintage. Deep and broody in colour again, bright and lively at the edge. Blackcurrant, cedar, Szechuan pepper, charcuterie and a little cedar on the nose, the palate is dense, and chewy, and carries bombastic berry flavours with a booming, dry, peppery finish. This stuff is extroverted and fabulous, and a makes a fine companion while chasing some BBQ goodies around a plate.
