Heathcote on Show 2017 – 10-12 June


Tellurian Hosts Wine Australia – Worlds Best Restaurants Regional Visit




INTERNATIONAL sommeliers drank in the region’s delights when the Somms of the World program stopped in Heathcote last week.

Organised by Wine Australia, the program toured 50 sommeliers around the country to showcase the diversity and quality of regional wines.

Hosted at Tellurian winery, the Heathcote stop allowed five local winemakers to showcase their products.

London-based sommelier Donald Edwards said the visit to Heathcote opened his eyes to new wine suppliers from the region.

“I’m seeing a very different aspect of Heathcote,” he said.

“I see Jasper Hill wine in the UK but I don’t work with their importers, so I wasn’t buying them.

“I’ll have to go out and get some of that now, because it looks delicious.”

Mr Edwards praised the region for its “elegant, classic” style of Shiraz.

“These guys have got the right sort of acidity, and I tend to look for that acidity and balance first.

“Everything here has that freshness that I think is essential.

“I’d certainly like to work with these winemakers.”

San Francisco’s Tartine Manufactory wine director Vinny Eng said he had come to Heathcote with a holistic approach to sourcing wine.

“At Tartine, we focus on the bigger picture of how we get what we eat and drink,” he said.

“So I look at it all contextually – who are the farmers, the growers, the producers — and what are the farming practices?”

“I’m looking to support practices that are generative – that are generous, and kind and restorative to the earth that gives us so much.”

Mr Eng said he was considering adding Heathcote wines to his carefully-crafted wine list.

“As someone who is often finding wines for food, wines like Heathcote’s – with a touch more acidity and a more lean style – tend to work really well with more things,” he said.

“Above all, I just want to know what the human narrative is here – that’s what I’m listening for and that’s what I’m tasting for.”

Winemaker Philip Meehan said the program’s stop in Heathcote was a tribute to the region.

“These wine experts have chosen to come and visit Heathcote – I believe that shows that our reputation precedes us,” he said.

“I think that the group visiting will be quite impressed with the countryside, our enthusiasm, and the quality of the product.”

Vic100 Wine Awards Success

Tellurian_Tranter Shiraz_2013

Tellurian Wines are delighted to announce that once again we have been awarded the Regional Award for best Heathcote wine in the Vic100 Wine Awards. Our 2013 Tranter Shiraz took out the prize, following on from the 2013 Pastiche Shiraz winning the same award last year.

Curated by Nick Stock, the Awards aim to judge the top 100 wines from across Victoria and seek to find the best wine out of each region in a celebration of the depth and diversity of the Victorian Wine Industry.

The 2013 Tranter Shiraz was recognised for being “A shining example of just how well Heathcote can do the bigger, bolder and richer style of shiraz with a sense of balance and poise. This has plenty of depth and fleshy, texture, dark plums, dark chocolate and a bold saturated plum finish. Delicious now.”

We are thrilled that our 2014 Pastiche Shiraz and 2015 Fiano also made the list of the state’s top 100 wines.

The 2013 Tranter Shiraz and 2014 Pastiche Shiraz will be released in 2016. The 2015 Fiano can be purchased here.

Our 2014 Viognier, 2014 Pastiche Shiraz and brand new 2014 Redline Shiraz were all awarded Gold, standing out from the many entrants in their respective categories.

Winemaker Tobias Ansted is thrilled with the results yet only more determined to produce many more show stopping stunners.

The 2014 Viognier and 2014 Redline Shiraz are available for purchase here. The 2014 Pastiche Shiraz will be released for sale in 2016.
