About Domaine Asmara Bistro & Cellar Door

Handcrafted wines made with love and passion are what you will find at Domaine Asmara on Gibb Road in Toolleen. Nestled in the heart of the Heathcote wine region, this vineyard and cellar door lets Mother Nature do her work with no machine intervention used to produce wines such as Shiraz, Durif, Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drop by the cellar door for a tasting of drops like the flagship Infinity Shiraz 2019, full-bodied and loaded with dark fruit flavours; or rich and forceful Viognier 2017, with layered fruits and a Halliday rating of 92 points, best paired with a cheese and charcuterie platter. For an elegant dessert wine opt for Lady Killer Durif 2016, with a long finish on the palate; extremely versatile try this with sweets like poached pears, grilled peaches and nutty biscotti.

Spent a couple of nights in Heathcote in early August 2012 intent on visiting a winery or two. Somehow we ended up at Domaine Asmara - in part as the facility includes a restaurant. Situated along a poorly sealed road. 'DA' definitely doesn't offer a very strong presence. I guess you could say it is unpretentious. Anyway, we were the only ones there, however the hosts were more than happy to 'stoke up' the kitchen to provide us with some basic food (we didn't want much) in the shape of genuine home made spring roles which were absolutely delightful! Beautifully presented and tasty beyond belief! To the wines... The winery, as is typical of the area, specialises in reds with a penchant for Shiraz. With all of their reds highly rated by James Halliday, I was hopeful of some nice drops. And I wasn't disappointed. Three stood out to me: Their 90 point 2008 Shiraz Heathcote was extremely easy drinking and at a very good price. Next up the 2008 Reserve Shiraz; nice and finally, DA's flagship 2008 Infinity Shiraz. I am far from a wine connoisseur, all I can say is when I like something, I like it, and the Infinity Shiraz was to die for! I have a fair collection of 90+ (mainly 94+) reds (I love my reds), several relatively expensive drops, and I would have to say that the Infinity is right at the top of the list. The wallet is now throbbing:-)
