No occasion required Shiraz.
You feel entirely satisfied. Plates are smeared with the remnants of a homemade Napoli pasta sauce, and wine glasses with latent fingerprints are brimming with a velvety, easy-drinking red. Having thrived in Heathcote's Mediterranean-like climate and red rich soils, this Shiraz is on the slightly dryer end. Ripe raspberry and woody cherry explode on the first sip. Chalky tannins, earthy white pepper and anise provide impressive balance that will leave you craving another. It's a medium bodied drop with an intense, deep ruby colour.
