2008 Barnadown Run Heathcote Cascabel Shiraz Strong deep colour; not bottled until Nov '10, the long time in oak fully justified; rich black fruits have an undertone of spice, liquorice and cedar, the tannins ripe and round. Best yet, and will cellar well. To 2030. JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION (2012 Edition) Rating 94 pts

2008 Barnadown Run Heathcote Cabernet Sauvignon Good colour for age; a plush and velvety palate where layers of blackcurrant, plum and mint are balanced by lively acidity on the finish, which provides significant extra length to the palate. JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION (2013 Edition) Rating 93 pts

Greenstone 2007 Heathcote Shiraz

Reviewer:
Ralph Kyte-Powell

Greenstone reverses the trend of Australian winemakers going to Europe to make wine - the winemaker at Greenstone is Alberto Antonini from Tuscany, a heartland of Italian wine. His international perspective has made Greenstone's wines some of the more interesting to come from Heathcote. Rating: 5 Stars (A superb example, a near perfect wine of great character, worthy of the big occasion and the best company). Value: $$$ A wine with a price tag that makes it a steal.

Mick Cann is one of Heathcote's top winemakers but doesn't get a lot of publicity due to the fact that he makes minuscule quantities. 2008 was no exception with yields restricted to an extremely low 1 tonne per acre due to the on-going drought resulting in very,resulting in very concentrated, high quality fruit. Maturation took place in a combination of French, Russian and American oak hogsheads.

Thanks to Galli. bargain Heathcote Shiraz is no longer a paradox.Layered with pepper and spice, ripe plum and cherry fruit and soft, fine tannins, it's ready to rip into right away. Give it a light chill to lift its peppery spice and tone down its 14.9% alcohol. 91 points.
