About the event
This is an incredibly special vineyard. The Mt. Camel range sits in Central Heathcote and sits right along the thin line of the 500 million-plus year old red Cambrian soils. Boutique Winery in Heathcote Owner/winemaker Michael Wren was a flying winemaker across multiple continents before joining Esporao, one of Portugal’s leading wineries. He was particularly struck by the use of stone lagares: the large, shallow (knee-deep) fermenters that facilitate foot treading or stomping of red varieties, resulting in wines of great colour and richness with a soft palate. He found a 14.5 ha vineyard planted in 2002 to multiple clones (and rootstocks) of shiraz, and makes individual block wines using replica lagares with great results.
