Archer Heathcote Shiraz 2013
The Archer project was put together by renowned Australian wine writer, Nick Stock, in 2004. Having made Heathcote shiraz with his brother under their Twofold label for a couple of years and tasted nigh on every wine being made in the region, he felt there was the potential to deliver better quality and better value Heathcote shiraz. The first Archer was released from the 2005 vintage. Work on crafting balanced, complex and approachable wine starts in the vineyard with a range of parcels selected across different expositions, clone types and harvest dates. In the winery these are all vinified separately in small 10 hectolitre open fermenters, with a reasonable proportion of whole bunches and without the addition of cultured yeast. These are foot trodden and hand plunged. “I’m aiming for approachability, elegance and complexity. Wine for drinking.” - Nick Stock
"An amalgam of four parcels with a significant proportion (50%) of whole bunches and a small amount of viognier co-fermented. Fragrant red and blue fruits with a distinct tar and liquorice edge to it, the oak sits nicely inside the fruit. The palate rolls on smooth fluffy tannins carrying dark cherry and plum flavour, finishing fresh and neatly balanced."- Archer Wines.
