Buckshot Vineyard Shiraz 2012
Buckshot is a small family owned producer with over 20 years wine industry experience. They produce two limited release red wines – Shiraz and Zinfandel – wines with personality, character and texture.
Planted in the famous 500 million year old Cambrian earth of Heathcote, these soils are riddled with “BUCKSHOT”, a colonial expression describing the ironstone pebbles that have formed over many centuries, which are a true sign of how ancient these soils are.
Dark colour and flavour but it has a trick or two up its sleeve. It lays on a power of fruit flavour but manages to keep itself nice, with clove and dried herb notes infusing muscular tannin with more than just grunt. Sweet but also savoury. Strong arms of flavour. Rating: 93 Points; Drink: 2016-2028; Price: $31; Date Tasted: Feb 2015; Alcohol: 14%; Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front
