2021 Pyrette Heathcote Shiraz
Notes from the vigneron - Michael Dhillon:
This project now goes back two decades, to 2001. The seasonal stamp is always there, these are not formulaic wines scrubbed and rubbed into an overriding house style, for the harvest date and winemaking is focused in ensuring a balanced wine that shows the markings of the year. (As James Halliday says, a Pinot Noir winemaker’s Shiraz!). The 2021 is a delicious and harmonious continuation of the style showing complex dark fruits, savouriness, spice and graphite. The palate is initially supple and fleshy then builds intensity for a long and balanced finish. It will become more complex and textured over the next six years.
