It's Back! The $20 Heathcote Sensation that's almost too good to be true. This is the Tatiarra we know & love.
A return to top form.

After the disastrous 2011 vintage where no wines were produced at all, Tatiarra has bounced back to top form with its 2012 wines.
Totally opaque inky black purple core showing superb colour saturation with a very deep dark purple hue. Youthful freshly crushed scents of blackberry and dark plum emerge from the glass followed by some liquorice, subtle vanillin oak and a trace of black pepper as an end note. At twenty dollars a bottle, the palate possesses a level of richness and concentration like few others from Heathcote (or any other renown Shiraz producing region for that matter). Mouthfilling flavours of succulent liquorice, ripe blackberry and dark plum fill every corner of the palate followed by some vanillin oak and pepper. Solid, yet fine grained tannins provide the wine with a slightly chewy mouthfeel and impressive structure. Excellent length with long liquorice, blackberry, vanillin oak and pepper aftertaste. A remarkable value that’s a return to the style of the hugely popular 2009 vintage that sold out in a matter of weeks.
Don't miss this one!
Cellar 6-8 years

Other Reviews.....
The rich tapestry of flavours of the palate bear witness to the very high quality of the vintage, and the difficulty of finding barrels to cull. The colour is excellent, and the wine copes with its elevated alcohol, the finish savoury rather than hot; on the way through spice, pepper, licorice and a waft of dark chocolate all add motifs to the tapestry. Terrific value. Drink by 2027.
