Review of the 2016 vintage included below;

"Bright garnet hue; a coil of dark fruit wrapped around star anise, eucalypt and licorice working off a palate that is just shy of fuller-bodied with firmish tannins yet a lively finish. All in all ready for the taking. 89/100 Price when Tasted: $22.00 Date when Tasted: 01 Jan 2018 Alcohol: 14.5 % Drink By: 2022 Closure: Screwcap" - 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.
VINEYARD: The 2017 Tellurian Redline Shiraz was made from selected parcels from the Tellurian vineyard on the western side of the Mt Camel range, combined with a small parcel of fruit from the Tuohey vineyard on the eastern side of the Mt Camel range.

WINEMAKING: The grapes for the 2017 Redline Shiraz were fermented in 4-5 tonne open top concrete and stainless steel fermenters between 10 to 21 days on skins, with hand plunging or pump overs once to twice per day. The wine was matured for 10 months in mostly French oak (approx. 90%) barriques along with a small portion (approx. 10%) in American oak barriques, prior to filtration and bottling. All of the oak was seasoned with no new oak used, to allow the fruit to have full expression in an early drinking style.
