Profile

Deep, vivid colour; a complex and enticing bouquet has licorice, spice, black fruits and oak all competing for space, a battle of epic proportions on the palate. A full-bodied shiraz of the highest qualty, thanks to not only its power, but also its balance and harmony, oak and tannins precisely weighted.

Velvety and aromatic, the Heysen Shiraz is one of Rolf Binder's top Shiraz wines and was first released in 1989. It is made from dry grown Shiraz planted in sandy soils with a varying amount of 1-4% Cabernet Sauvignon, depending on the vintage. Named after the 1,200 kilometer Heysen Trail which borders the Rolf Binder ‘Chri-Ro’ estate.

Critic Awards

A wander on the Heysen walking trail on the western border of the Rolf Binder estate probably elicits the same Aussie bush scents as its namesake shiraz: pepperberry, briar, touch of mint, eucalypt. It beautifully encapsulates a sense of place. Stands tall in the glass with pronounced black plums, currants, nutmeg, cloves. Palate is velvety, tannins are plush and the oak shows care.

Aromas of tobacco, baked bread, pepper, together with redcurrant, blueberry, violet and some nori as well. The palate has a cool, central stream of blueberry flavors with layered, fine tannins and a composed, elegant feel. Drink over the next decade.
