Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz 2014 - 12 Bottles
Rufus Stone Heathcote Shiraz rich colour of this wine indicates its intensity. The nose is full of ripe plum and dark cherries with a hint of white pepper and sweet vanillin. The flavours carry onto the palate which is full of big soft fruit, but balanced by an elegant oak structure and natural acid, resulting in a rich wine with a complex and fresh structure.
A darker, more restrained release after the opulent 2013 vintage. All of the hallmarks of classic Victorian Shiraz with an aromatic profile encompassing all of the spice cupboard, with the typical white pepper for which Heathcote is renowned. The palate shows an abundance of dark fruit with lovely integration between the French oak and acid. Drinking incredibly well on release, will age well in the medium term.
