Tellurian Redline Shiraz 2017

Tellurian Redline Shiraz 2018 Victoria Heathcote

$19.95

The Tellurian Redline Shiraz 2018 comes from Block 2 and Block 3 of the Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.

Deep crimson-red colour. The nose displays charcuterie notes, slightly chary oak, and expressive dark fruit. The medium bodied palate is round and plush with dark fruit, and blackberry combining with and spice and soft tannins, making it a wine that’s very approachable in its youth. This is an impressive expression of Heathcote Shiraz. Delicious! For an ‘entry level’ shiraz this shows the true class of this producer!

Tellurian meaning ‘of the earth’ was established in 2002 with the planting of the first block of shiraz in Heathcote’s famed red soils. Located on the western slopes of Mt Camel, overlooking the township of Toolleen, the modern winery and cellar door look out to the picturesque views of the vineyard which now includes Rhone Valley and South Italian varieties to complement the regional hero – Shiraz.

Tellurian was born of our founder Ian Hopkins passion for Heathcote shiraz. Offered the opportunity to partner in establishing a new vineyard on the Mount Camel range in 2002, Ian’s caution was overcome by the idea of crafting something fine and beautiful from Heathcote’s 550 million-year-old Cambrian soils.

Bringing together our team, winemaker Tobias Ansted, viticulturist Tim Brown and co-principal Daniel Hopkins, Ian’s never-say-die attitude saw the first vintage of Tellurian shiraz bottled in 2008. Within four years we had completed building of an Australian shed-style winery and cellar door overlooking 32 ha of vineyards.

Shiraz was our first planting, but over time we have added Rhone varieties, grenache, mouverdre, carignan, grenache gris, marsanne, roussane and viognier and Italian wines; nero d’avola and fiano which are perfectly suited to our continental climate.
