A unique blend of 3 varieties: 2017 Heathcote Shiraz, 2018 Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir and 2019 Heathcote Rosé.

2017 Heathcote Shiraz

The fruit was handpicked in late February and fermented over a 12-day period in small open fermenters with twice daily punch downs and temperature control. Post ferment, the wine was lightly pressed and racked into a seasoned French barrique for ageing. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in late May 2017. The wine remained in barrel until it was blended and bottled.

2018 Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir

Handpicked in late March and fermentation lasted 10-days. Twice daily punch downs and temperature control, before pressing and transferring to a 3-year old French barrique. Aged in barrel for 17 months before blending (with the other varieties) and bottling in October 2019.

2019 Heathcote Rosé

Mourvèdre fruit from up north of the Heathcote GI, the whole bunches were transported directly to the winery. The fruit was left on skins for approximately 3 hours before lightly pressing to tank. The wine was racked and then inoculated, with the ferment lasting 12-days. Post-ferment, the wine was transferred to a stainless tank, before blending with the Shiraz and Pinot Noir in early October.

Crafted by Emily and Rob in the winery one day, we blended a few different varieties, wanting to create the ideal “Home Blend”. After multiple combinations, we settled on this one – a fun and easy drinking blend which integrates beautifully.
