The Flynn Heathcote property enjoys an easterly facing aspect to catch the first morning sun, ideal for ripening grapes and reducing any risk of frost. Whilst planting the vines, a number of different Shiraz clones were grafted onto various rootstocks, the aim being to increase the complexity of wine. Vinified to traditional handling techniques, the hand picked grapes are crushed, fermented in small batches and hand plunged over a course of seven to ten days. Juices are basket pressed by hand, transferred to tank for settling followed by a racking to barrel. Flynn is aged fourteen months in a combination of new and prior use American and French oak barriques.
Greg and Natala Flynn established their operation on the narrow strip of ancient red cambrian Heathcote soils which produce world class Shiraz wines. MC stands for multiple clones, when planting their vineyard, the Flynns sowed a number of different clones with the aim of increasing complexity in the wines. Endowed with a vigorously perfumed bouquet and graceful palate, MC Shiraz is an elegant and controlled Heathcote Shiraz with clear regional personality, treated to an extended ageing in a selection of oak barriques from the world's finest cooperages.
Dark cherry red colour with scarlet robes. Ripe cherry and mint perfume, integrated oak and a hint of pepper. Full bodied yet elegant palate, structured and generous with plum/ violet fruit characters, kept vital and bright by crisp and aromatic cherry acids, supported by soft, well rounded tannins and licorice chococolate oak before a fine, long, flavourful finish. A match with stone grilled beef or steaming teppanyaki.

Greg and Natala Flynn knew that to make great wine you first had to produce great fruit

After searching for a year and a half,studying 45 potential vineyard sites, Greg and Natala finally settled on the best vineyard position. The Flynns Winery and Vineyard is located on a narrow strip of the ancient cambian soil that runs north of the Heathcote township, which is now so highly prized. The combination of low rainfall, soil, plentiful sunshine and climatic influences result in very low yields of very high quality fruit.

 Flynns

The site has an easterly facing aspect to catch the first morning sun ideal for ripening grapes and reducing frost risk. A gentle slope on the site ensures some air movement that reduces the incidence of damaging frosts. The vineyard was planted in 1999 and comprises five acres of Shiraz, one acre of Merlot, one acre of Cabernet Sauvignon, two acres of Sangiovese and one acre of Verdelho.

Whilst well suited for the growing of regal quality wine varietals, the Flynn's vineyard only averages 580mm of rain annually. This makes the the distinctive clay subsoil of the vineyard ideal for retaining some of the precious little rainfall.
