Not many country towns can boast a winery on the main street, but at Heathcote it's a part of the scenery. Heathcote is renowned throughout the world for producing much of Australia's finest Shiraz. Enter the Cravens Place, an elegant effort, stylish and quintessentially Heathcote. Sourced principally from sites at the warmer, northern periphery of Heathcote township, Craven's Place is fashioned to be a supple, bright and approachable wine. Ageing in choice oak barriques contributes to the complexity and allows the quality of Shiraz to realize its full potential.
Heathcote Winery is meeting the demand for wines that are truly reflective of the region, but with the individual stamp of innovation and excellence. Low night time temperatures contribute to vine balance and excellent berry development. Picking is all done by hand, fruit is delivered to the winery where juices are extracted from the grapes by pumpover in closed tanks and hand plunging in open bins to extract optimum colour and tannin. The finished wine is matured sixteen months in a selection of French and American oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES
Brilliant ruby red with purple hues. Lifted blueberry and forest fruits dominate the nose, over a backdrop of spicy vanillin and plums. Bright fruits fill the palate, framed by chewy, fine grained American and French oak and supported by crisp natural acidity. A lively, medium bodied Shiraz, fleshy and dense in flavour, Craven's Place finishes long with persistent primary fruit characters over supple tannins.

More About Heathcote Winery Wines
Heathcote Winery was one of the first commercial wineries in Heathcote
Uniquely positioned along Heathcote's main street, Heathcote Winery holds a surprise for many of its visitors. Few could ever expect to find a fully functioning winery directly behind a Cellar Door. The estate wineworks and adjacent art gallery are sited within the restored produce store built by Thomas Craven in 1854 to cater for the huge influx of gold miners seeking their fortune. Thomas Craven sold wine and spirits, and traded in gold. An entrepreneurial type, he also ran a coach service (depicted in the logo) from stables behind the Cellar Door, delivering supplies and mail around Central Victoria, hence the significance of the estate's Mail Coach range.
