Sweeping out from a limestone ridge, layers of the famous terra rossa soil hold firm to the roots of Heathfield’s vines. And its here, nestled between pristine nature reserves and distinguished wine regions, that the Tidswell family craft their cool climate varietal wines.
It’s a rugged land, but one that rewards those who can sit back and absorb its beauty with a glass of Heathfield Cabernet in hand.
The colder and wet winter of 2013 and some good spring rains set up the vineyard well before a long, hot and dry summer. This resulted in average grape yields at harvest of consistent quality.
Cabernet Sauvignon parcels were selected from ‘East-West Block’ at our family estate vineyard Heathfield, then harvested at 14.5 Baume. Matured superbly after eighteen months in new and older French oak barrels, this wine displays a distinctively regional style.
Dark berry flavours, herbaceous overtones and silky tannins describe this rich and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy with beef curry or slow cooked lamb!
Consume now or cellar until 2024.
