Drake: Drake was created by a motley group of winemakers and sommeliers, born from a shared belief in creating thought-provoking wines of individual character and expression.
When looking for a satisfying rich and rewarding Shiraz to warm us on a cold Melbourne night we looked no further than the moderate climate and ancient Cambrian soils of Heathcote in Central Victoria.
Tasting Note: A rich and inviting nose, all opulent ripe berries although tempered by sweet spice and earthy savouriness. The palate continues the theme with a supple core of dark berry and blood plum fruits, with oak very much in the background, before velvety tannins and bright acidity shape the finish. A beautifully lush expression of Heathcote Shiraz that is a great by the glass option of for short / medium term cellaring.
