The first Springflat came from our winery block vineyard. It is approximately 2.5 acres, sits on quartz buckshot clay soils and its production is around 2 tones per acre. Planted in 1988, it has now reached maturity and is capable of producing fruit of incredible depth of flavour.

Food Matching:

Grilled or roast beef, big beefy stews, venison, Cheddar cheese.

The Wine Advocate
Wild Duck Creek's offerings can be the most concentrated and wickedly wild wines of Heathcote, but this vintage appears to have tamed some of this winery's fire and brimstone characteristics. However, at 16% alcohol, the 2003 Shiraz Springflat is no wimp. It exhibits surprising minerality along with crisp acidity as well as loads of blackberry and cassis fruit interwoven with background floral and new oak notes. Spicy, deep, medium to full-bodied, and impressively endowed, it requires several more years of bottle age, and should last for 12-15 years.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161

Wine Spectator
Rich in color and texture, with black pepper scents wafting through a plush core of raspberry, cherry and spice aromas and flavors, echoing beautifully on the polished finish.
