Heydon Estate is a boutique, family owned and operated wine producer located in the heart of Wilyabrup in the Margaret River wine region. All wines are from the estate’s single vineyard established in 1988, producing some of the region’s finest Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Sauvignon Blanc, Botrytis Semillon, Shiraz and Petit Verdot. Attention to detail is the Heydon family’s mantra, from the application of rigorous organic and traditional practices in the vineyard, to releasing wines once they’ve achieved ideal bottle age.
A more opulent and sweeter fruit expression of this single vineyard shiraz than the elegant 2017. The aromatic lift of the small amount of viognier brings a spicy apricotty influence, that is subtle but effective. The palate has a push mouthfeel, but that vineyard character that is slightly earthy and savoury remains to telling effect. Rating: 94 Points; Ray Jordan
