Heathcote Shiraz 2013

This is the 2013 of that same wine, also purchased at Chapoutier and drank along side the 2009 I just posted. This was really good too, but definitely came across as more fruit-forward with less backbone to it than the 2009. This was also reflected in how the wine evolved over that same couple of days: whereas the 2009 fell off gracefully, this one dropped much more precipitously to where it was wholly uninteresting at day 3 (while the 2009 was still drinking well). I initially assumed that 2013 might have been a warmer vintage than 2009, and while this might be true, the 2013 clocks in at 14% versus 14.5% for the 2009. That difference in ABV might be in the noise, but the difference in the overall quality between these two (still excellent) wines was unmistakable. — 2 days ago

Demi Heathcote Shiraz 2015

Bright crimson. Plummy with a sour twist together with Heathcote dirt. Medium to full bodied - a mouthful of earthy rich dark fruited Heathcote goodness at the amazing QPR of only $25. Tastes like a $75 wine. Good stuff! — 3 months ago
