Savoury, meaty notes. Shows some wonderful herbal lifted tones on the nose. Blue fruit becomes obvious as the wine opens up. Palate is soft and alluring, with a luscious mouth-feel, blueberry and talc. Tannins dominate, a brilliant long acid palate carries the fruit and flavour profile for a wonderful length.
94 Points James Halliday Wine Companion
Has developed serenely over the past seven-plus years; the hue is a healthy red-purple, with no hint of brick, and plum, black cherry and spice still drive the medium-bodied palate; the oak and tannins are an integral part of the flavour and mouthfeel, but do not challenge the fruit. A lovely developed Australian red.
Matt Dunne Head Sommelier, Aria Sydney
Northern Rhone characters, spicy, brambly, high toned with intense natural acidity, graphite edge, plum… a very pure style.

Overlooking the Campaspe River valley, visitors to Redesdale Estate Vineyard will enjoy the views and Mediterranean style gardens of this quaint restored bluestone dairy. Redesdale Estate’s vineyards are among the oldest in the cool climate southern part of the Heathcote wine region and are grown on old volcanic sendimentary rock and soils.
This rich soil contributes greatly to the intensity and varietal purity of their wines. Planted in 1982, all of Redesdale Estate’s grapes were once sold to a contract winemaker. It wasn’t until 1999 that the winery began producing their own wines. The 1999 Redesdale Estate Shiraz was the first vintage to be labelled under the Redesdale Estate label and was the first of many fine red wines made by their winemaker.
Producing estate grown red wines, Redesdale Estate handpicks their grapes with care. This ensures each bunch is in optimal condition when they begin the winemaking process.
The wines are aged in new and one-year-old French oak, and further aged for two years in the bottle. The result is award winning wines that show great elegance.
