2017 Devil’s Cave Vineyard Shiraz
From a place steeped in history, the actual Devil’s Cave is situated behind the vineyard on the McIvor Range. This was at one-time, a place of refuge from the elements for Heathcote’s gold prospectors.
In the hands of local lad, Luke Lomax (Yabby Lake’s winemaker) Devil’s Cave captures the rich depth of fruit Heathcote offers to the Aussie shiraz landscape.
With its attractive magenta hue and polished dark berry fruit flavours, this red is further leavened with extra layers of herbal flavour from the use of whole bunches.
Drink with dishes of equal intensity – a low, slow braise would be perfect.
