Tar & Roses began life as a joint venture between former Mitchelton winemaker Don Lewis and his colleague Narelle King. Following the passing of Don in 2017, Narelle has carried on the tradition of producing wines that deliver beyond the expectations of their price points, excelling with this offering. Fruit was sourced from a variety of vineyards, some on the deep red Cambrian soil and others located on tougher more gravelly ground. Maturation took place in a combination of new (20%) French and older barriques.

Delivers Heathcote Shiraz’ trademark richness and structure at a great entry level price.

Inky black in colour with a deep dark purple black hue. Intense aromatics of liquorice, blackberry and ripe blueberry are trailed by smoky vanillin cedar, dried herbs and pepper. Opulent blackberry, liquorice and black cherry fruits swamp the full bodied palate overlaying a back drop of lightly toasted vanillin oak, earth and pepper. Solid structure with sturdy yet velvet like tannins leading into a long savoury aftertaste that has a robust feel to it.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%
