Lake Cooper Heathcote Shiraz 2020
Dark crimson black, hues of purple and ruby. Bright and perfumed aromas of red forest fruits and subtle toasty French oak. The palate is densely layered and effortlessly long, combining texture and richness. Primary fruit flavours of blackberry and cherry give way to the complex secondary characters of bramble and forest floor. The use of 100% new French oak adds freshness and structure, framing the pristine fruit. - Winemaker's Notes
Lake Cooper Estate is a small family-owned wine producer that marries time-proven grape-growing and winemaking techniques with the expectations of the modern wine buyer. The estate’s vineyard of around 80 acres is managed with the intent to deliver classic Heathcote regional style and quality, but also to reflect its unique combination of easterly exposure and its deep, ancient and rocky soils.
All decisions in the growing and making of the wine are designed to emphasise the site’s special qualities and to reflect the ambitions of the owner, Liping Wang, to fashion wines of complexity, expression and elegance that age with both charm and grace.
With a new winery on the drawing-board and new plantings to implement over the coming years, Lake Cooper Estate is set to reinforce its presence in the wine industries of Heathcote and Australia. - Information from Lake Cooper Website
