2016 Merindoc Shiraz
Wine Rating 
 
95

This was the first time the wine was produced from the Merindoc flats vineyard which runs next door to the cellar door, it’s a cooler site than the springs vineyard and has provided a cooler climate representation of Heathcote Shiraz.

The wine is a deep, impenetrable red with a nose shows the subtle integration of older oak with and understated spice to intensely concentrated plum and black cherry. The palate is tightly wound with compact tannins and great lines. It oozes class and is positively dripping with black berry fruits and violets, a touch of leather and earth give another layer to the mid palate. The finish rolls across the tongue with fruit, acid and oak in balance.
