2017 Heathfield Vermentino

Sweeping out from a limestone ridge, layers of the famous terra rossa soil hold firm to the roots of Heathfield’s vines. And its here, nestled between pristine nature reserves and distinguished wine regions, that the Tidswell family craft their cool climate varietal wines.

It’s a rugged land, but one that rewards those who can sit back and absorb its beauty with a glass of Heathfield Vermentino in hand.

VINTAGE

The 2016/17 growing season was very different from the previous year, with much of our district recording very high rainfall and some flooding. This meant the vines were well set up for the growing season ahead. The storms that tracked across the state in December, fortunately bypassed our region and there was a late start to summer. The heat eventually did arrive in January and summer was long with lower temperatures on average, meaning slow ripening and a later harvest. The vines yielded well, producing generous bunches of ripe fruit.

TASTING NOTE

Harvested at 12 Baume, it is a lighter style white Sardinian grape varietal.

The 2017 Heathfield Vermentino is aromatic and richly textured with firm acidity. Delightful citrus zest, pear and white peach flavours ensure a perfect match with various foods, especially seafood and leafy salads.

Serve chilled and consume within 2 years for optimal freshness.

2016 Publican Shady Violet Pinot Gris

VINTAGE

Winter in 2015 was drier and cooler on average, with very cold nights in early spring, but fortunately no frosts in the vineyard. Early summer heat promoted early bud burst and consistent warm to hot days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening period, resulting in premium fruit with true varietal characters.

TASTING NOTE

Pinot Gris was planted 3 years ago in Perkins Block on our Heathfield estate vineyard and harvested at 12.5 Baume.
The 2016 Shady Violet Pinot Gris is vibrant and refreshing with abundant green apples and citrus, underlying mineral notes and hints of leatherwood honey. With a balanced acidity and clean, crisp finish it is the perfect partner to Asian cuisine.

2013 Heathfield Cabernet Sauvignon

Sweeping out from a limestone ridge, layers of the famous terra rossa soil hold firm to the roots of Heathfield’s vines. And its here, nestled between pristine nature reserves and distinguished wine regions, that the Tidswell family craft their cool climate varietal wines.

It’s a rugged land, but one that rewards those who can sit back and absorb its beauty with a glass of Heathfield Cabernet in hand. 

VINTAGE

The colder and drier winter of 2012 meant that we welcomed good spring rains before a long, hot and dry summer which resulted in high grape yields at harvest in late March 2013.

TASTING NOTE

Cabernet Sauvignon parcels were selected from 'East-West Block' at our family estate vineyard Heathfield, then harvested at 14.5 baume. Matured superbly after eighteen months in French oak barrels, this wine delivers a distinctively regional style.

The 2013 Heathfield Cabernet Sauvignon imparts an abundance of dark berry flavours with herbaceous overtones and silky tannins. Rich and elegant with a mouth-fill of wild berry and intense blackcurrant flavours which soften on the palate. Enjoy with beef curry or slow cooked lamb!

Consume now or cellar responsibly until 2023.

Tasting Notes

Shiraz parcels were selected and picked from ‘Road Block’ at our family estate grown Heathfield vineyards. Harvested at 14.5 Baume, the fermented grape juice was then matured for eighteen months in new American hogsheads followed by second use French oak barrels.

The 2013 Heathfield Shiraz presents a colour and bouquet of luscious ripe berries.  The delicious savoury palate of redcurrant and plum, with a hint of mocha and spice, blends with silky tannins to reveal a classy shiraz of generous length.

Consume now or cellar responsibly until 2023.

The 2012 Jennifer Cabernet Sauvignon is a tribute wine in memory of its namesake whose laughter and passion for life was unforgettable.

Rich berry fruit and abundant cassis flavours overlay a soft tannin finish of generous length. It is a refined, full-bodied wine reflecting the regional characters of our vineyards. Responsible cellaring up to 15 years.

The balanced acidity and a clean, crisp finish compliment seafood dishes, especially Atlantic salmon; equally good with hard cheese.
