Another victim of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic was the cancellation of our beloved Heathcote Wine and Food Festival held at the regions showgrounds annually. One of the benefits of attending the Festival that will be missed by some, is the ability to buy individual bottles from several different wineries. Problem solved! The Heathcote Women in Wine group have hand-selected a wine that would have had a special promotion at this years cancelled festival.
The pack includes:
1 x 2018 Sanguine Estate ‘Progeny’ Shiraz (750ml)
1 x 2018 Silver Spoon Estate ‘The Monster’ Shiarz (750ml)

2018 Sanguine Estate Progeny Shiraz
Very deep dark red hue, showing great concentration. A warm vintage shining through with an array of berries. Cherry standing proudly amongst the usual pepper and spices that the Sanguine vineyard throws up. Probably the smoothest early release Progeny to date with mouth filling richness and softening tannin with just a hint of oak in the background, as all good Progeny’s before it. Enjoy now as Progeny is designed, but as history shows most Sanguine shiraz can go the distance. 2021 Halliday Wine Companion – 94 points | Winestate’s 2019 Mainfreight World’s Greatest Syrah & Shiraz Challenge – 4.5 Stars | The Real Review 2020 – 4 Stars Silver Medal | The Real Review – Huon Hooke Top Value Reds | Wine Showcase Magazine 2019 – Silver Medal
2018 Silver Spoon Estate ‘The Monster’ Shiraz
2018 The Monster Shiraz: A full-bodied wine with deep garnet red colour with grapes sourced from our Estate’s dry-grown vineyards in the heart of Heathcote. There are lashings of dark cherries, blood plum and vanilla on the nose with cedar, mocha, chocolate and cinnamon on the palate. The finish is soft and long with oak and fruit singing in harmony, yet retaining an elegant balance. A great pairing with char grilled steak or a rack of lamb. Put a MONSTER in your wine cellar!
2018 Armstead Estate ‘Roxy’s Paddock’ Shiraz
Shiraz fruit from four premium vineyards running North to South along the Heathcote Faultline were blended to create this ‘Cambrian Rise’ Shiraz. Using a combination of French (45%) and American (55%) oak Barriques, using 20% new American oak. All barrels were allowed to go through Malolactic fermentation in mid-2018. Juicy black raspberry, sage and allspice. Opulent mulberries, spectacular structural integrity with a dense, silken finish.
2016 Munari Wines ‘Gunpicker’ Shiraz Cabernet
A blend of Shiraz (60%) and Cabernet (40%) is ruby in colour, bright and smells of summer berry fruits, strawberries, raspberries, musk sweets and freshly baked pastries. There is an underlying black olive, herbal element credited to the Cabernet. This medium bodied wine has an explosive, fruit driven and concentrated mid palate highlighting the red fruit characteristics. The tannins are firm and grippy both adding texture and hinting at the youthfulness of this wine.2021 Halliday Wine Companion – 94 points
2017 Farmer & Scientist Tempranillo
Following the success of our 2015 Tempranillo – ‘Best Mediterranean wine’ 2016 Victorian Wine Show – we release our much anticipated next vintage. Heathcote has again rewarded us with rich purple fruits, dark cherry, light spice and supple tannins. It’s the wine we love, as each glass is easy, exciting and super rewarding. One of those varieties that simply needs to be on your radar.
2015 Vinea Marson Sangiovese
Vinea Marson was amongst the first to plant Sangiovese in the Heathcote region, in fact it was the impetus for Mario Marson and the family’s move from the Yarra Valley some 20 years ago. Now the multi clonal plantings produce wines of elegance and complexity, and regularly gain acclaim, including 95 Points from the Real Review for this 2015 vintage: ‘Dried cherries, worn leather and cured meat aromatics. The palate has the same cherry note but more vibrant. Lines of dried earth, terracotta and mountain herbs intersecting with acid drive and tannic grip. Lots of depth and presence making for an intriguing glass. Drives deep and lingers long.'95 Points – Stuart Knox – The Real Review
