94 Points - Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

Rich lemon, lemon soap and ginger biscuit scents, showing off both sweetness and a savoury element, even faint saline notes. Fleshy in the palate, a big mouthful of white wine, layered in fruit, savoury and spice characters, finishing chalky and chewy. It’s a detailed, delicious wine here.

Region

Situated due North of Australia’s capital, Melbourne, the Heathcote region sits nestled between the Goulburn Valley and Bendigo region, in Central Victoria. Wine from this region stands out due to the perfect combination of warm climates and cool, southerly winds mixed with its ancient rich, red Cambrian soil. The region has become renowned in recent years for its Shiraz, which tends to be complex yet well-balanced. As well as Shiraz, the other red varieties such as Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon do well here, with whites such as Viognier and Chardonnay becoming increasing popular. From the Heathcote region, we have a selection of wine from two of its best wineries, Wild Duck Creek and Tatiarra.
