Details

Whitebox is situated on the eastern slopes of the Mt Camel range, atop some of the most sensational Shiraz growing terrain anywhere in the world. So named because the vineyard is sanctuary to one of the largest remnant stands of White Box eucalypts.

For the 2014 vintage a large proportion of the Heathcote region was hit hard by frost during the flowering season however Whitebox Vineyard escaped significant damage. the majority of our vineyards are located above the region’s historical frost-line. Days of extreme heat during the ripening period were countered by the application of perfectly timed irrigation by our vineyard team. The resulting crop was harvested at optimal ripeness.

Each parcel was fermented separately in traditional open fermenters, and given varying levels of maceration to enhance complexity and to provide a wide array of flavours and textures to the final blend. Malo-lactic fermentation and maturation in new & old french oak and temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for periods varying from six to eighteen months (dependent on wine structure) followed, prior to assemblage of the finished wine. The Whitebox Heathcote Shiraz 2014 is a beautifully balanced wine with an abundance of varietal fruit flavours along with the structure for which the region’s great wines are renowned for. apricots, blueberries, chocolate and leather topped off with spicy french oak, fine tannins and a lingering finish.

Varieties used: Shiraz & Viognier (2%) Winery Notes.
