Retaining exclusive access to a choice parcel of the finest Heathcote Shiraz, Buckshot craft distinctive wines which reflect the bounty of soils whence they originate. A limited production of a only a few hundred cases, fruit is harvested off some of the oldest vines in Heathcote and vinfied in traditional two tonnes open fermenters which are parked within an annex of the sprawling wineworks at Domaine Chandon. It's the uniqueness of terroir and microclime which makes the quality of Buckshot so conspicuous, low rainfalls, warm days and cool nights combine to stimulate the sagely old vines, planted to vivid red soils over an east facing slope just to the southwest of Colbinabbin on Mt Camel Range. Alcohol 14.0%
Buckshot is a reference to the splendid ironstone pebble soils which pervade some of the more propitious Heathcote sites, instrumental in allowing a singular combination of water retention and drainage, while promoting superior root penetration. Small batch winemaker Rob Peebles sources a very special parcel of Shiraz from a unique five acre block, off vines forty years of age, within the eminent Davies Vineyard, an auspicious site which also supplies fruit to the venerable Two Hands and Bindi labels, as well as Domaine Chandon.

Buckshot are a family owned and operated vineyard winery amongst the famous Terra Rosa soils of Heathcote

Heathcote is an amazing place to grow grapes, long warm days and cool, clear nights provide a perfect climate for wines of powerful structure and fragrant perfumed fruit characters. Buckshot strive to create distinctive Heathcote wines which reflect the soil in which they come from. The wines of Buckshot show intense varietal aromas and flavours, balanced weight and mouthfeel, and a long silky finish. There are two wines released each year, Shiraz from a distinct 5 acre patch and a Zinfandel from a tiny single acre plot. Both are planted to the famous 500 million year old Cambrian quartz and ironstone soils which have made Heathcote famous throughout the world of wine.

 Buckshot

After a fifteen year tour of duty at Domaine Chandon, Buckshot was established in 1999, following a further experience of six vintages experience at Rutherglen, some spent under the tutelage ofh the legendary Mick Morris. Buckshot is a colonial expression describing ironstone pebbles which riddle the soil. These pebbles allow root penetration and water retention while promoting good drainage. Buckshot soils, along with Heathcote's low rainfall, warm days and cool nights provide the perfect environment to grow these varieties. As a result, the mature vines naturally produce small crops of 2 to 2.5 tons to the acre.
