The 2013 Kennedy Shiraz is a classic expression of our Heathcote vineyard. With fruit handpicked after a warm summer, this wine demonstrates elegance and layered complexity. It has a bright purple hue with aromas of red berries, cassis and lifted floral notes, backed by sweet spice and graphitic earthiness. In the mouth, red crunchy fruits and spice are carried by a firm acid-line and fine coating tannins, resulting in a long finish. After three years in bottle, this wine is drinking well now, however it will reward those who can cellar for a further five years.
