James Halliday 94 Points!

"Hand-picked from low-yielding vines, wild-fermented in 1-tonne vats, matured for 12 months in French oak. This is ultra full-bodied, not because of alcohol or extract, nor tannins, simply the density of its sultry black fruits, licorice and spices. Pass judgement in a decade from now."

 James Halliday Wine Companion 2019

"Pyrette Heathcote Shiraz is sourced from an impeccably sited and managed vineyard near Colbinabbin on the Mount Camel Range. The specific parcel of vines this fruit comes from is at the highest block on deep red, rocky Cambrian soils on a cooler easterly facing slope. The picking date is carefully assessed in order to capture fruit vibrancy and freshness whilst capturing the typical mouthfilling richness and length of the region.

The wine is made in 1000 litre open vats, fermented with ambient yeast and matured in French barrels, 10% new. The yield, harvest date and winemaking are deliberately aimed at producing a wine of regional authenticity in a style highlighting fragrance, vitality, finesse and harmony.

Production is typically 800 dozen per vintage."
