The uniqueness of this wine results from parcels of fruit being sourced from eight other sites across the Heathcote region, stretching from Colbinnabbin to Mia Mia. These vineyards are living in various soil types ranging from the rich ‘cambrian’ volcanic soils of the north, to the dense, acidic, granite and quartz-laden clays of the south. This allows the Springflat Shiraz to express a rainbow of richness for which the Heathcote region is famous. The Springflat Shiraz is a Wild Duck Creek Estate flagship, representing exceptional value – earning a place on the Langton’s classification in 2010.

Seductively rich and ripe, it has medium-firm velvety tannins, high acidity and a long berry-laced finish ..." (Lisa Perrotti-Brown)
