A cheeky blend from the Merindoc vineyards at Heathcote, with just a touch of Nagambie from Box Grove Vineyards, this is a lovely drinker - to have with food or just on its own.​

Enticing and delicate nose of white flowers, citrus zest and passionfruit. This wine is pure and viscous on the palate, with flickers of ripe stone fruit. Well integrated acids and almond and grapefruit rind phenolics keep the wine lifted and fresh.

Vineyard: Merindoc Willoughby Bridge, Heathcote, & Box Grove, Nagambie

Our Roussanne is sourced from Sarah Gough's Box Grove Vineyard. Textural, yet clean, this is a lovely wine with food. 

 

Bright straw yellow with green tinge. Citrus, pear, honey with some almond and white flowers chiming in, with more almond and lemon curd aromas as the wine opens.  The palate is round and textured with just enough breadth before refreshing acidity cleans up the finish.  Nice mid weight wine which is fresh and neat, reflecting the slightly earlier pick.

 

Vineyard: Box Grove Vineyard, Nagambie

We call this one The Heathcote Red - a delicious blend of Syrah and Grenache, with a touch of Mourvèdre, sourced from top and tail vineyards of Merindoc in Heathcote.

The Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre blend is deep garnet red with bright ruby edges. A mixture of red and black fruits on the nose, with background herbal and allspice notes. The palate is initially soft and supple, with a core of black fruit and spice, before transitioning to a dry, savoury finish.

ABOUT

We're about finding great parcels of land that grow beautiful fruit, and turning that fruit into the wines we're proud to add to The Lost Plot stable. In the past this has taken us into the wilds of the Languedoc, France, and around Victoria, Australia.

 

For our 2019 vintage we've had a lot of fun working with the Shelmerdine vineyards in the Heathcote region, and Sarah Gough of Boxgrove Vineyard in Nagambie, and we're proud to add our new Rosé, Roussanne and Syrah/Grenache/Mourvédre to the lineup.

 

We've been lucky to work with the esteemed winemaker Paul Old (of Les Clos Perdus) on our past vintages. He has now passed the baton to the very capable hands of the very talented Matt Campbell (Mattara Wines & Crittenden) who continues the tradition of gentle handling and minimal mucking around to produce beautiful small batch wines that truly reflect their sense of place.

Matt getting his hands dirty.

Paul and Matt chew the fat.
