Over the last decade or so Sanguine Estate have steadily built a reputation as one of Heathcote’s top producers making rich, intensely flavoured wines that have brought a loyal following. Their entry level Shiraz ‘Progeny’ is consistently one of the districts best buys. Ben Riggs continues to consult the Hunter family in their endeavours.
A brilliant peppery Heathcote Shiraz loaded with rich fruit that punches well above its price.
Matured in predominately French oak barriques, approximately 15% new, for a period of 12 months. Superb colour saturation displaying an inky black core that’s totally impenetrable with a very deep dark purple black hue. Elevated aromatics of fresh ripe blackberries and liquorice are followed by some dark plum, lightly smoked vanillin cedar and blackpepper. Boasting magnificent fruit purity, richness and concentration the densely textured yet structured palate is saturated with an array of blackberry, black cherry and liquorice fruits that are infused with blackpepper. Underscoring the fruit are shades of meatiness and subtlety smoked vanillin cedar. Whilst there’s an opulent feel to the seductive fruit, a firm yet finely grained tannin structure provides some muscle and a touch of grip to the finish. The pepperiness following right through to the explosively long and chewy aftertaste of black cherries, liquorice, blackberries, dried meats, lightly smoked cedar and even more spicy pepper. Possibly the best Progeny to date.
Cellar 6-8 years.
