A good depth of colour precedes pleasing ripe summer fruit aromas. Black plum and spice are also apparent on the nose. There is a sweet plum entry in the mouth, which develops into concentrated fruit with subtle savoury notes and a touch of leather. Tannins satisfy the palate and fruit lingers on the finish. Drinking well now, and will age gracefully.
Puritan is made to be drunk young. The wine is purple red, with lifted dark fruit on the nose, as well as blue fruit (damson, blueberries), dark chocolate and a subtle thread of tannin running through the wine. This wine is fresh, fresh, fresh.
The vibrant dark cherry fruit typifies the area that this wine is from in Padthaway, South Australia and is the backbone of this wine.Blackberry, plum and mocha are also evident, creating a palate that is rich and soft. This wine was matured in French oak for approximately 4 - 6 months before being filtered and blended for bottling. It is a wine that has been made to drink now but will cellar for around 5 years.
Shows deep, concentrated blue fruits, great mid palate weight and long lingering impression. Texture and structure with fine oak and tannins playing a supporting role. An opulent rendition of Bin 0 and one that will benefit from some more time in bottle.
This Limited Release Heathcote Shiraz boasts a bright ruby red colour with vibrant purple hues and aromas of cinnamon, white pepper and cedary oak. The palate is spicy and elegant with pronounced red berry fruit flavours and balanced oak in the background adding complexity. The acidity provides real liveliness and the tannins are fine grained and well integrated. This wine will gain complexity with age, try it in the cellar for 3 to 5 years from vintage.
Rich and deep in colour. Its softly perfumed nose illustrates the characters that come from a cool climate fruit source. A gentle structure, it balances the house style richness within a more nimble framework, retaining sweetness but holding back on ‘bigness’. A touch of stalky/whole bunch flavour adds another layer. A rich, deep but elegantly structured wine.
The nose is incredibly lifted and fragrant, red fruits and peppery spices feature strongly. As the wine breathes we are struck by a raft of darker and more earthy aromas such as mulberry, black plum, soot and baking spice. The palate is pleasantly bright with lively acidity and elegant fruit weight. A generous dose of mineral fruit tannin ensures the wine is structured and wonderfully long. As this wine ages it will develop more generosity and complexity through the mid palate, but the acid and tannin structure will ensure it stays lively and long.
