2014 proved to be a challenging vintage in general for the Heathcote district, a heavy frost hit the region just as flower set had begun and a large number of vineyards lost up to 80% of their crop. Tatiarra, situated at the base of Camel Mountain came through unscathed as the frost slide through without damaging the vines. Yet another dry vintage and temperatures in the mid 40’s meant water had to be trucked in as all dam supplies had been exhausted. Water is applied to keep the vines in perfect condition thus avoiding loss of foliage. Vintage started on the 5th March and finished on the 26th March allowing each section of the vineyards to be picked at their optimal point of ripeness. Tatiarra came through these trying conditions with a near perfect vintage, winemaker Ben Riggs ranking it just below the great 2013 vintage.
For fans of big Heathcote Shiraz it’s unlikely you’ll find better value.
Impenetrable pitch black colour with a very deep dark red black hue. Potent liquorice, dark plum and black cherry scents fill the olfactory senses followed by some scorched earth and vanillin oak, fennel and pepper. Rich, open and expressive the palate is saturated with densely concentrated flavours of liquorice, ripe blackberries and dark plum overlaid by blackpepper with underlying vanillin oak, earth and spice. Magnificent fruit purity and despite its extravagant opulence there’s still structure aplenty in the refined velvety tannins. Outstanding power wave with a very long conclusion of liquorice, ripe blackberries, dark plum, vanillin oak, earthy fennel characters and spicy blackpepper.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
