This vintage has seen the Pyrette really hit its stride (quickened, elevated steps?). The fruit is sourced, as usual, from the Colbinabbin vineyard (starting in 2001) and the Col Mountain vineyard (starting in 2014). It is made in a similar way to the Pinot Noirs, with the exception of seeing around 20% whole bunch inclusion in the fermentations (rather than zero or close to zero for the Pinots). The 2022 is very complex with beautiful aromas; mulberry, red and dark plum, spice and graphite. The medium weight palate has flair and is intense with the fruit power driving a structured and firm finish. These wines certainly improve with eight years cellaring and drink for many years after that but can also be enjoyed for their medium weight and harmony right now.

Our notes

It is incredible how much impact a Burgundian palate can have on Heathcote fruit. Shiraz styles in Australia are changing, and this is one of them. 

Picked slightly earlier than most Heathcote shiraz, the Pyrette avoids heady alcoholic levels and displays well defined Northern Rhone characters, although the Heathcote terroir comes through strongly.

Savoury, earthy niceties slowly emerge amidst floral violet notes in the glass, which mingle with blueberries and darker spectrum spicy plum Heathcote fruit. There's a touch of charred smokiness and green peppercorn in the background, too, that you might otherwise see in a St Joseph or Cornas from the Northern Rhone in France, for example. The silkiness and texture is a highlight as the wine rolls around in the mouth, with just enough muscle and plenty of energy and refinement. Oak is mostly an afterthought and very subtle in the wine. Most importantly it is drop dead gorgeous to drink now, but it will take a few years of bottle age too. Lovely stuff! CR
