Wild Duck Creek Shiraz Heathcote Springflat 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefdunkle Farbe mit violetten Reflexen. Knackige schwarze und sehr intensive Fruchtnase, klar und geradlinig, dicht und tief. Tolle Struktur, dichte, fast pelzige Tannine, etwas Extraktsüsse, grossartige Konturenschärfe, überraschend feste Säure. Viel Charakter.

Residing to the north of the Great Dividing Range in Central Victoria, the region is at elevations between 160m and 380m. For the most part, the soil under vine is of the pre-Cambrian era - red and deep with excellent water holding capacity, although the regions most sort-after and expensive wines come from the predominately clay with granite and quartz inclusions of the Southern and Central sub-regions. The region’s rainfall is evenly distributed between the seasons and the temperature range is defined as temperate, with cooling winds emanating from the south. It is our belief that the Heathcote Wine Region will eventually be divided up into three sub-regions (Northern, Central and Southern) as there is a distinct difference in the flavour and structure of the wines coming from these individual areas. These differences are due to the influences of the local ‘terroir’. Read less

Lots of oak on the nose. Rich chocolate scents are joined by spicy herbal tones, vanilla, leather, blackberry and some plummy notes. Comes off as a touch sweet on entry, but is followed by lovely, spicy herbal nuances and some cedary/toasty oak. The tannins are firm but remain beneath the fruit here, which is rich yet quite fresh, turning much more berried on the back end. On the finish, this falls a bit short, butwith attractive red cherry/currant fruit. Really well balanced, holds its alcohol effortlessly. 89 pts

An amazing Shiraz and probably one of the best yet. Has an abundance of alcohol which surprisingly isn't overstrong. Will develop further into a fine wine.

My daughters friend brought this wine to Thanksgiving dinner. This is a fine wine that leaves me wanting to find more wines from small Australian wineries. Love the fruit tones and color.

The blockbuster 2004 Shiraz Springflat's inky/purple color is followed by a wine that pushes concentration to the limit. Made from tiny yields of 1.5 to 1.8 tons of fruit per acre, aged in 50% new and 50% 1 and 2 year old oak (half American and ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
