The Heathcote region produces Shiraz wines which are distinctly different to those from South Australia’s more famous Shiraz-growing regions. Its unique flavour is sometimes referred to as “heathcote-ness” by the wine journos (very creative guys) and is seriously worth a try. This particular wine is produced by Yabby Lake and a great place to start your Heathcote Shiraz adventures. Slightly sharper, not so bold or fruity and requires a little more concentration on your part. Not exactly a Friday night in front of the footy wine, more like Saturday night out with friends.
