5 STARS WINE ORBIT. SAVE 46%
The Drake was created by a motley group of winemakers and sommeliers, born from a shared belief in creating thought-provoking wines of individual character and expression. When looking for a satisfying rich and rewarding Shiraz to warm us on a cold Melbourne night we looked no further than the moderate climate and ancient Cambrian soils of Heathcote in Central Victoria.
A satisfying opulent nose of berries tempered by sweet spice and a subtle earthy savouriness. The palate continues with a supple core of dark berry and blood plum fruits, underpinned by oak in the background, before velvety tannins and bright acidity shape the finish. A beautifully lush expression of Heathcote Shiraz that is a great by the glass and perfect for cellaring 3 - 6 years. It would partner well with a barbecued rib-eye steak with a peppercorn sauce.
