From the heart of the southern sector of the Heathcote Wine Region, the long established Redesdale Estate vines grown on this cool climate small vineyard have adapted to the dry, volcanic, sedimentary rock site in Central Victoria. The intensely flavoured fruit is hand picked with care, so whole bunches enter the winemaking process in perfect condition.
Although the vines were planted in 1982 (and the grapes sold), the first vintage was made for the Redesdale Estate label only in 1999.
Redesdale Estate wines are made from grapes grown only on this single vineyard, producing a true history of wine from the same vines, grown on the same soil, year after year.
The wines are aged in French oak for about 14 months and further aged in the bottle prior to release, resulting in wine that shows great elegance and consistently gains top awards.
These southern cool climate Heathcote wines include award-winning old-vine Shiraz, a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon – Cabernet Franc (with a small percentage of Malbec and Merlot), and a blend of all three varietals, La Scassatina. All are excellent to enjoy now and perfect for your private cellar.
Our policy of reserving parcels of all vintages made since 1999 has made possible the purchase of carefully stored museum vintage wines of great provenance for both our restaurant and private customers.
