Tasting Notes

⇐ 360 Shiraz​

A central acid structure supports a juicy and fresh forward mouthfeel, while dusty tannins fill out the midpalate. Dense red in colour with a vibrant purple hue, notes of ripe blackcurrant, cherry and spice create impressive flavour.

⇐ Block Sixty-Four Verdelho​

Unfiltered bright fruit and mouthwatering acidity makes for a perfect drink on its own or paired with any number of different cuisines. Cloudy and pale, the lemon straw colour mirrors the lifted tropical and citrus flavours.

⇐ Heathcote Shiraz​

A beautifully balanced wine with an abundance of varietal fruit from Massaros’ sister vineyard.  his wine boasts apricots, blueberries, chocolate with spicy French oak, fine tannins and a lingering finish, along with the signature structure of a Heathcote wine.

⇐ Yarra Pinot Noir​

This pinot noir showcases a bright and complex profile, displaying notes of cherry, raspberry and spice. The palate is fresh and vibrant, containing hints of plum. Coloured purple with a ruby hue, this vegan friendly wine is a stellar addition to your wine collection.
