I've had a few bottles of shiraz from this region, and one thing I always pick is a lovely flintiness that comes through. The Heathcote Estate 2010 Shiraz is no exception.
Tasting this wine, there was that fresh earthy flavour I really associate with this region which has a fantastic mineral aspect to it. I also found a subtle star anise, and ripe cherry and plum on the palate. Tannins weren't overpowering but structured well into the wine, making this vintage a keeper for quite a few years yet.
This is a full-bodied wine that you do need to sit on a bit to unravel the complexities in your glass.
