Trophy - Best Shiraz - Heathcote Wine Show 2020
Trophy - Best Young Shiraz - Heathcote Wine Show 2020
Trophy - Best Single Vineyard Wine - Heathcote Wine Show 2020
Tellurian is one of the rising stars of the Heathcote wine region, producing an impressive range of Shiraz. This 2019 Tellurian Pastiche Shiraz is another vibrant expression of Heathcote Shiraz, made in a medium-bodied style where the focus is on bright fruit flavours combined with subtle oak, that makes it ready to be enjoyed now.
What I also really like about this wine is its pedigree. Tellurian are a family owned, certified organic vineyard & winery, intent on crafting solely 100% Heathcote wines. They have previously won Best Shiraz at the Heathcote Wine Show for their Redline Shiraz. They also like to keep their prices in check, you don't need to pay $100 a bottle like some more established Heathcote producers from the region will ask you for.
We'll avoid advertising the likes of whom this wine out-performed in order to receive these awards (I've received feedback they don't like this published), however we will talk about price because it's rare to see a Heathcote shiraz priced under $30. This Tellurian Pastiche Shiraz is excellent value and we all like value.
"Yet another classy red from Tellurian. The plum, mulberry and spice characteristics have considerable appeal, as do the savoury tannins."
Those words above are from a Winewise Magazine tasting and they're spot on. This is a richer style of wine, just like Heathcote is famous for and Cloudwine "best in Australia" price of $26.99 means you can stock up
