Notes

Dominique Portet was established following 10 consecutive generations of winemaking in the Portet family, stretching back to the 18th century. Ben Portet is now at the winemaking helm and like many Australian born winemakers spent time overseas to experience other terriors including vintages at Louis Roederer and Wawick Estate in South Africa.

 

The shiraz was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 25 days in order build silky tannins and develop the structure to age. Then matured for 15 months in tight-grained French oak barrels, of which 25% were new.

Critics Comment

James Halliday
96

‘Bright crimson-purple, although not particularly deep; this is a beautifully weighted and detailed shiraz, reflecting Heathcote in a favourable vintage after many difficult years of drought and flood; it has a marvellously supple, medium-bodied palate, and effortless length.
