2018 Anti-Hero Shiraz
|Region||Otway Hinterland-Geelong, Vic|
|Status||Organic practices (working towards certification)|
The Heroes vineyard is a passion project of James and Eloise Thomas. The vineyard is sustainably grown (zero synthetic pesticides used) and the best possible quality wines are produced without compromise using non-interventionist techniques: no irrigation, no additions, no fining or filtering (reds), natural yeasts, and minimal sulphur additions at bottling only. Wines contain sulphur levels below the organic threshold. These wines are made to stand up on their merit, wines that reflect their origins.
|Wine||Like so many of James' wines, the 2018 Anti Hero Shiraz is elegant and approachable. Prune, blackcurrant leaf and baking spices on the nose; herbaceous, wood shavings, capsicum and black fruits on the tongue. Lovely smooth mouth feel.|
|Tasting Note||Fresh Plum - Green Pepper - Sweet Spice|
