First produced in 1991 Springflat Shiraz, along with Alan’s Cabernet, is one of two wines Wild Duck Creek Estate was founded on. Originally a single vineyard wine, Springflat Shiraz is now a blend of five specific sites; three in the north on Cambrian soils over Ironstone and Granite, and two in the south on clay loams over mudstone. Winemaker David Anderson and son Liam have a flair for producing extraordinarily rich and powerful wines that rank as some of Heathcote’s best.

Decadently rich and luxuriously textured this is a blockbuster Heathcote Shiraz.

Matured in French & American oak hogsheads for 24 months of which 40% were new. An average of 20% whole bunches were retained in the ferments to add layered aromatics and texture. Super dense inky black heart with an equally deep dark purple black hue. Penetrating the olfactory senses are intoxicating aromas of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark plum which are followed by vanillin oak, mocha and spice. Showing incredible depth of fruit, richness and power, the full bodied palate is completely saturated with a tidal wave of lush blackberry, liquorice and dark plum fruits. Subtlety toasted vanillin oak, traces of earthy mocha and spice ensue. Velvet smooth tannins with a long blockbuster finish that’s layered with opulence.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 15.1%
