2002 Heytesbury

The 2002 Heytesbury is a blend of fruit from two wine regions - Margaret River and Great southern (Mount Barker) and is a wine with exceptional complexity of flavours and aromas. A relatively cooler vintage produced finer tannin structure with earthy, savoury notes and leafy herbaceous edges. The final composition is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Shiraz, Merlot and Malbec filling the middle palate, adding to its richness and forming the core of this elegant wine.

Tasting Notes
Colour Deep purple and red hues. Nose Leafy, herbaceous edges provide intense varietal and regional characteristics. Palate Underlying blueberry and cassis flavours combine with the earthy and dusty savoury oak characters that envelope this full bodied wine. Its linear but firm tannin structure will ensure further development and long term cellar capabilities of our flagship red wine.
