Trentham Estate Heathcote Shiraz

Trentham Estate Heathcote Shiraz

Trentham Estate Heathcote Shiraz

Rich, complex red. Rich and balanced showing lifted fruit aromas of pepper, plum, dark cherry and chocolate. The palate is long with fruit sweetness balanced by fine mocha oak.

This 2014 Trentham Estate Heathcote Shiraz is part of our carefully selected Family Reserve Range that aims to epitomise the best these regions have to offer.

Sourced from a single vineyard in the middle of the renowned Heathcote region; a region famous as a premium Shiraz producing area. The vineyards Cambrian soil allows the vines to consistently produce ripe full flavoured fruit, rich in berry and spice flavours with dark deep red colours

A disease-free ripening season combined with dry warm weather allowed perfect ripening of the fruit. Harvested on the 12th of March at 14.5o Baume, the grapes were crushed and fermented before pressing and transferring to French oak for maturation. After 18 months the wine was blended and bottled for further maturation prior to release.

Trentham’ s winery has been operating since 1988, where it has grown from the initial 30 tonne crush to a minimal but state-of-the-art facility handling up to 5,000 tonnes of premium fruit each vintage. It allows the flexibility to perform different winemaking styles, resulting in the diverse and always consistent Trentham Estate wines.

The 46 hectares that make up Trentham Estate’s vineyards sit on a winding riverbank at Trentham Cliffs. The ideal terroir of red loam over limestone soils combined with nurturing water from the Murray River allows the vines to flourish.

Meticulously managed by viticulturist Patrick Murphy, the vineyard today comprises over twenty different grape varieties. The oldest vines were planted over half a century ago.
Harvest typically begins at Trentham in mid to late January – slightly earlier than most wine regions of Australia due to the warmer climate of the Murray Darling. Grapes are picked and crushed at optimum ripeness to produce the perfect flavour.

Trentham Estate

Trentham is a small boutique winery located on the banks of the Murray River. It produces wines of outstanding value for money with great varietal fruit flavours.

Murray-Darling

The first winery in the region was established in the 1880s by W.B. Chaffey (Mildura Wine Co at Merbein). Today there are around nine/ten wineries in this region. This may not sound so many for a large area, but they are some of the largest wineries and their production is enormous. References such as: ‘the industrial heartland of Australian wine production’, ‘the powerhouse of the Australian wine industry’ are often used to describe this region wine production. The climate is continental; hot and dry with low rainfall making it a relatively fungus disease free region thus reducing the risk for such large-scale production. The main wine styles: Chardonnay, Semillon.

Shiraz

flourish in a range of climates. In the warm to hot climates you can expect extremely intense aromatic, rich, full bodied wines, with hugh fruit (almost sweet) and chocolately tasting. In the more moderate/cooler climates you’re more likely to find structured Shiraz wines with black cherry, pepper and spice characters rather than the chocolate and fruit styles found in warmer climates.
