Greenstone Shiraz

Welcome to the future of Heathcote. This wine encapsulates this region’s flattering ability to produce shiraz of brooding depth of black cherry and plum fruit, yet, crucially, in a refreshing style of vibrant acidity, textural tannins and no more than medium-bodied aspirations. Greenstone has conjured its finest vintage yet, coaxing vines of just six years of age to immaculate maturity at just 13.5% alcohol. The secret is a vineyard planted at more than two-and-a-half times the usual vine density – and the winemaking sorcery of Kooyong’s Sandro Moselle. $25 at Cellar6.
