Classically dark purple but the with red fruit scents of currants and blueberries and fresh cracked pepper. The attack is more boisterous blackberries, pepper and savoury notes with a juicy, silky soft palate that lets the wine slide down effortlessly. There are lots of similarities between this wine and what we are doing in the south Okanagan but I must say the textures here are more pleasing and better suited to the price. The tannins are almost gone despite the obvious youth of the wine. The winery employs homemade compost and grass cover adapted to each plot to develop biological life and regulate water needs. The wine is aged in concrete vats. Food pairings are numerous including poultry, lamb, cheeses and charcuterie. The wine is 100 percent syrah grown on sandy/loamy soils in 20-year-old vineyards. Impressive value.

Tim Smith Bugalugs Shiraz 2021
Aromas of blue and black fruit, a hint of spice and a palate packed with flavour. Fresh acidity and some peppery, earthy characters through the finish.
Established in 2001, and with 33 years of hands on experience, Tim Smith Wines is a Barossa Valley-based producer of wines that we consider our region to excel at growing. We are unashamedly influenced by the great producers of both the North and South Rhone Valley in France, but have a New World understanding of the techniques that we believe work best in our region. This understanding comes as a result of working as a winemaker with some of our regions most respected wineries, and numerous overseas vintages in a number of countries; always watching, always learning, and always challenging even our own winemaking approach. Our wines are at once rich, polished, and structured for longevity, but with a brightness of fruit that invites early drinking.
Flametree SRS Wallcliffe Syrah 2018
This unashamedly medium bodied Syrah styled Shiraz shows lovely lifted spice, clove, orange peel, liquorice, plum, blackberry and earthy notes. The palate displays a wonderful core of elegant blue/black fruits, spice and fine tannins. The lifted fruits are supported by a nice core of oak and stalk tannin.
Hand picked fruit was refrigerated overnight before being carefully destemmed in order to retain whole berries. This fruit was conveyed into bins and again refrigerated whilst the stems were washed and dried in the sun for 5 days. The dried stems were placed in an open fermenter and the whole berry fruit was then poured over the stalks. The must was soaked for about 4 days before the wild ferment kicked in. Once the ferment was active we started to plunge and foot stomp the whole fruit and dried stems. After ferment was complete we pressed the skins and transferred the wine into 15% new French oak puncheons for 16 months maturation.
The Ryder Shiraz 2017 is sourced from estate grown premium vineyards in Clare Valley.Displaying dark raspberry and plum with black pepper and spice, this wine is soft and opulent with a long finish.
Chard Farm River Run Pinot Noir 2019 . Aromas of bright cherry and berry fruits lightly spiced with a lingering floral and herbal perfume. Wonderfully supple and silky on the palate, highlighting the ripe cherry, red berry and spice flavours, finishing with superb balance and drinkability.
The Tellurian Redline Shiraz 2018 comes from Block 2 and Block 3 of the Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.
Deep crimson-red colour. The nose displays charcuterie notes, slightly chary oak, and expressive dark fruit. The medium bodied palate is round and plush with dark fruit, and blackberry combining with and spice and soft tannins, making it a wine that’s very approachable in its youth. This is an impressive expression of Heathcote Shiraz. Delicious! For an ‘entry level’ shiraz this shows the true class of this producer!
Paxton MV Shiraz 2020
Organic | Biodynamic
COLOUR: Bright purple with red hues
AROMA: Oscillating between ripe blackberries stolen from your neighbour’s back fence and wild fennel seeds harvested along a country roadside this wine keeps you intrigued waiting for further revelations like cocoa and star anise
PALATE: A medium to full-bodied wine with fresh mulberries on the palate entrance. The texture feels like floating over rolling hills in a smooth convertible, opening up like a view over an expansive valley at the crest of the last hill. Elongated by careful maturation in French oak barriques, the finish is like watching a glowing sunset at the end of an action-packed day
Paxton’s vineyards comprise of six Biodynamic properties. MV ‘McLaren Vale’ or ‘Multiple Vineyard’ Shiraz is a blend of 100% Shiraz from four of the Paxton vineyards, and has been developed to highlight optimum fruit flavours.
The MV displays the hallmarks of classic McLaren Vale Shiraz – elegance, balance and pleasure in a bottle. This wine gives the best of both worlds: a fantastic wine when young, but careful cellaring for 10-15 years will reward you very nicely.
Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has a deliciously juicy mid palate with flavours of plum, dark cherry and dried herbs. Unashamedly medium-bodied with sweet juicy fruit and a fine tannin structure.
Ridge Of Tears Shiraz 2017
An elegant Shiraz from Peter Logan’s Ridge of Tears range, the wine has perfumed berry and provence herb aromas of rosemary, thyme and fennel with a touch of white pepper. Smooth and velvety with a soft finish.
The same old thing. There’s plenty of that. Why make more?
When I started out, I wanted to make wine that I liked to drink. I wanted to excite me, not cater to a demographic. So against lots of strong opinions (including within my family) I began deviating from the usual winemaker script. Different to what we were taught at wine college. Different to what the establishment was doing.
I chose the then unfamiliar NSW Central Ranges as my base, planted Tempranillo, made Pinot Gris when few did, made Gewürztraminer (people still don’t), created whimsical labels and stories, fermented white grapes on their skins, used large barrel oak, wild yeasts, and now sell wine in kegs!
And our modern cellar door looks out to the world, not inward. I’d guess it’s that mindset that has allowed this small independent winemaker to still be excited to do the same old thing for 24 years.
Tellurian Tranter Shiraz 2018
Tranter Shiraz is our flagship wine, a tribute to a pioneering Australian, returned WWI soldier George Edwin Tranter who once owned our lands. First made in 2008, this medium to full-bodied shiraz showcases Heathcote’s trademark minerality, depth of flavor and intensity.
Immediately recognizable as a highly typical Emily’s Paddock. From its depth of colour and individual, perfumed, minty nose, across its full spicy palate, beautifully balanced yet powerful grape and French oak derived chalky tannins to its extremely long, natural acid finish. Great longevity. Very proud of this one! 14.5% alc/vol
Jasper Hill is a small, family owned and operated organic vineyard and winery in Heathcote, central Victoria, Australia.
Our aim is to make great wine, with the preservation of nature’s flavours, complexities and balance in our wines by using minimal intervention in our vineyards and in the cellar – to allow the individual vineyard’s “terroir” or sense of place to express itself by ‘interfering’ as little as possible.
Our wines are grown, made and bottled entirely on the estate from our own grapes, using organic principles. We produce our own composts and have never used synthetic chemicals on either the vines or the soils, since our vineyards were planted in 1975.
Viticultural practices are simple: own rooted vines (ie. not grafted on to American rootstocks to confer Phylloxera resistance), no irrigation whatsoever, minimal tillage, natural inter-row mulching leading to broad bio-diversity, very low yields giving depth and intensity to our wines. Only hand pruning of the vines and hand harvesting of the fruit can allow us the human connection to our living soil.
With more than three decades behind us and many accolades for our wines, Jasper Hill has become synonymous with Heathcote, shiraz wine in particular, and is regarded as one of the pioneers of this relatively new and exciting wine region.
