Tellurian Redline Shiraz 2019
SPECIAL BUY 6 or more! Fine Heathcote Shiraz.
Tellurian Wines certainly is a rising star of Victoria’s Heathcote wine region renowned for Shiraz. Established in 2002 by Ian Hopkins and planting vineyards on western slopes of Mt Camel range overlooking township of Tolleen. Since first vintage produced in 2008 they have certainly hit the ground running!
The ancient deep rich Cambrian soils of Heathcote and meticulous attention in the vineyard and winery under Tobias Ansted since 2006 are paying dividends – winning the coveted 5 star winery rating by James Halliday’s Wine Companion.
The Redline Shiraz comes from Block 2 and Block 3 of the Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.
Grapes fermented in 4-5 tonne open top concrete and stainless steel tanks between 11 to 15 days on skins, with hand plunging or pump overs once to twice per day. Matured for 10 months in approx. 90% French oak and 10% in American oak barriques, prior to filtration and bottling. Seasoned oak (no new oak), allows full fruit expression in an early drinking style.
Deep crimson-red colour. The nose displays charcuterie notes, slightly chary oak, and expressive dark fruit. The medium bodied palate is round and plush with dark fruit, and blackberry combining with and spice and soft tannins, making it a wine that’s very approachable in its youth. This is an impressive expression of Heathcote Shiraz. Delicious! For an ‘entry level’ shiraz this shows the true class of this producer!
Winner of 2 x TROPHY for Best Shiraz and Best Young Shiraz at 2019 Heathcote Wine Show.
