Why do we love this wine?

There’s a vineyard in Heathcote that everyone tries to get a piece of, and it’s called Greenstone. D’Sas have managed to get their piece, and the resultant wine is going from strength to strength. The last two vintages have wrangled 95 points out of Sam Kim, and you mofos lapped up 5,000 cases of each. We know you get it.

Heathcote ‘17 saw a cool spring with plenty of rain, followed by a mild summer. A pretty bloody epic vintage all over Vic, in fact. Don’t get us started. At Mofo HQ we’re all currently discussing investment plans with our respective banks, because we don’t want to miss out on the incredible wines coming out of 2017. The fruit’s just taken next level, the balance on point. This shiraz has its now-classic blackberry, plum, cocoa, roasted hazelnut and game going on, and an even more opulent palate. Tannins are bold but velvety and bode well for a decade in the cellar. But if you’re anything like us, you’re well through your ‘16s and ready to get stuck into these. We can’t say we blame you. 

I dare say that winemaker Matthew Di Sciascio’s no longer the Dark Horse noted by Halliday in his 2016 Wine Companion. Now an easy odds-on favourite. Giddy up.
