Description

"De Bortoli’s Woodfired Shiraz 2018 is a plush and rich Heathcote style. It’s weighty and bold showing vanillin and spice from six to eight months on oak with powerful mulberry, blackberry and baked earth fruits. It’s complex, rich, ripe and juicy on the palate – with layers of sweet berry fruits with a touch of classic stony complexity and supple tannins. Delicious now it has the power and structure to drink well over the next three to five years" Angus Hughson, Drinkstrade, Oct 2019

Deep red with purple edge. Plump, dark fruits, fennel and olive spice, dark chocolate. Soft, rich, plump, balanced tannin, cured meats, wild spice, authentically Heathcote. Lovely drinking now. Will be delicious in 3-5 years in a good cellar.

Vineyards from several sections of Heathcote were selected from Corop, Chinamans Bend and Colbinabbin. The ancient red Cambrian soils of Northern Heathcote are ideal for dark fruited, plump red Shiraz.

Destemmed and fermented at 25-30°C over 6-8 days. Pressed and matured in vats and casks for 8 months. Racked and aerated regularly to soften the wine. Vineyards carefully selected for a balance of fruit weight and ripeness.

Food Pairing: Chargrilled lamb racks, or woodfired Napolentana pizza.
