Located on the western slopes of Mt Camel Range, Tellurian is one of the rising stars of the Heathcote wine region, producing an impressive range of Shiraz. This 2016 Tellurian Pastiche Shiraz is another vibrant expression of Heathcote Shiraz, made in a medium-bodied style where the focus is on bright fruit flavours combined with subtle oak, that makes it ready to be enjoyed now.

"While undeniably showcasing Heathcote fruit with its bright aromas of earth, Middle Eastern spices and bay leaves, this is quite a plush style. Plenty of hoisin, soy sauce, ripe and rich flavours but not too much, it's not overwhelming as the palate is fairly buoyant. 93/100. Price: $28.00 14.2% alc Drink By: 2025" - Jane Faulkner,

Tellurian Wines vineyard is on the western slopes of Mt Camel Range, overlooking the township of Toolleen.

The original Tellurian vineyard was planted in 2003 with 5.6 ha of shiraz vines, with a further 3.6 ha of Shiraz were planted in 2006.

The ancient 500 million year old Cambrian soils of the Toolleen area of the Heathcote region combined with viticultural practices that focus on optimising fruit quality from each vine provide the base building blocks for Tellurain wines.
Winemaking: Tellurian Winemaker Tobias Ansted’s philosophy is one that aims to allow the fruit to have full expression with winemaking and oak inputs playing a supporting role.

The majority of grapes were de-stemmed and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and concrete fermenters, with hand plunging or pump overs once to twice per day. Approximately 12% of the grapes were fermented as whole bunches. The wine was fermented on skins to dryness, between 19-23 days, before being pressed to barrel. Maturation was in mostly French oak (90%) and American (10%) oak barrels for 10 months and included a small portion new oak (10%).

The Wine: This wine is a vibrant expression of Heathcote Shiraz relying on intense fruit combined with subtle oak. Bright red purple colour. The nose displays aromas of blackberry, clove spice with hints of cocoa and earthy notes. The medium bodied palate is bright, lively with juicy dark berry fruit intensity, fine grippy tannins and persistent length.
