94 Pts James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion
"A deeply coloured, potent and strongly varietal cabernet, with blackcurrant, dark chocolate and earth all in the mix, the tannin supple yet strongly supportive. Oh, for a screwcap to double the wine's life. Cork." -94 points James Halliday
Rated 91 Points by the Wine Enthusiast with no tasting notes provided.
"Ripe and chocolaty, with a distinct hazelnut note weaving through the black cherry and chocolate flavors, remaining focused and refined through the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2014. 280 cases imported." 90 Points - Wine Spectator
"The crimson-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 15 months in American oak, 30% new. It reveals a fine nose of cedar, tobacco, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. On the palate it is full-bodied, smooth-textured, ripe, and easygoing. Its excellent balance should allow it to drink well over the next eight years." 90 Points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"The grapes for this wine were grown by our neighbours, Peter & Anita Frazer, whose low-yielding vineyard produces fruit of exceptional quality that displays intense richness & varietal character. As with our previous vintages this wine is a big, full- bodied wine with very obvious Cabernet character. The palate shows black currant and spice with firm tannins. Careful cellaring will enhance this wine for 8 â 10 years." -Winemaker
"Heritage Wines was established in 1984 and is situated in the historic village of Marananga, a region of increasing viticultural acclaim that has produced some of the Barossa Ãs finest wines for over 100 years."
"The winery is a small family-owned enterprise run by winemaker, Steve Hoff and his wife, Christine. The picturesque site offers relaxed & friendly cellar door hospitality with glorious views over the vineyards to the Barossa ranges. A small, but impressive range of varietal wines has gained an enthusiastic following and can sell out quickly, with increasing export demands to the UK & Europe." -Importer
"A sixth generation descendant of early Barossa settlers, Steve is described by James Halliday as one of the "quiet achievers of the Barossa Valley, who is apt to produce some startlingly good wines." With his family, he operates both vineyard and winemaking practices at Heritage and has created a reputation for excellence in both red and white wines."
"A true advocate of the Barossa, Steve is committed to producing exceptional quality varietal wines with emphasis on regional fruit characteristics and the unique big-hearted Barossa style." -Importer
