There used to be a time when I drank quite a lot of Heathcote wines, but somehow they have gone off my radar. Partly, because some of them are too alcoholic, partly, because attempts to 'tone them down' have not been so interesting.
So I was curious what the 2009 Seppelt Aeriu's Heathcote GSM would be like. The wine has a plummy bouquet. On the palate, raspberry flavours dominate initially, but very quickly this is followed by a sweet core, tasting like lollypop. Clearly the Grenache component dominates, and it is too sweet. The wine is not very tannic and finishes smooth and relatively simple.
