Antcliff’s Chase Heathcote Shiraz 2017

We source the fruit for our Shiraz from a vineyard in the Heathcote region of central Victoria, a region that produces outstanding examples of this variety.

The ancient red Cambrian soils yield grapes with small berries that give concentrated and intense flavours to the wine. The colour is deep ruby red with the nose opening up with floral notes over dark fruits with a hint of chocolate. Cherries and ripe plums dominate on the palate, leading to a finely articulated fresh finish with great mouthfeel.

Best described as “Christmas Day in a bottle”. This wine is an excellent example of powerful Victorian Shiraz, while still being well balanced with acid, preventing an over-ripe jammy feel.

Vegan friendly.

Antcliff’s Chase Wine

Antcliff’s Chase Wines is a small, family owned and run vineyard and winery situated at Caveat, midway between Yea and Euroa in the Strathbogie Ranges of North East Victoria. The five hectares of vines were established by John Antcliff Bennett, Neomie Bennett and their son Chris Antcliff Bennett in 1982. Wines under the name Antcliff’s Chase have been produced since 1989. The vineyard is sited at an elevation of 580 metres on a North Easterly aspect. The soils are well draining granitic sandy loams which are relatively infertile and deep. While these conditions do not mean high yields, they do allow the grapes to develop strong flavours and regional characters. All major activities such as pruning, thinning and picking are undertaken with great care by hand. The vines have been dry grown since 1994 with minimal use of fungicides and organic fertilisation by our flock of sheep. Today Chris Antcliff Bennett and his family produce an average of 600 cases of wine each year that is sold through the cellar door, selected local restaurants and of course, WineCloud
