Armchair Critic Reserve Heathcote Shiraz
I’m told the great value Armchair Critic wines went gangbusters after I announced them to the world, way back in Wine Taste Weekly Edition 18. There’s now an all-new big brother in the family, and it’s set to cause an equal stir. This is a tightly coiled Heathcote wine of considerable class and long-ageing potential. It’s closed up like a trap at the moment, yet disclosing considerable intensity of satsuma plum and blackberry fruits in its folds. Oak and fruit are intricately interwoven with classically Heathcote, tightly-defined, fine-grained, savoury, iron-like tannins and impressively lively acidity. A newcomer worth discovering – but do let it mellow in its armchair for at least decade first.
