When your main business is as left field as the eclectic and diverse work with Italian varieties at Chalmers, what do you do for a side project? Sisters Kim & Tennille decided to make a Heathcote Shiraz, but in the style of red that they enjoy.

Le Sorelle Shiraz, Heathcote 2014$26.00Le Sorelle is a project of siblings Kim and Tennille Chalmers; the name itself means the sisters in Italian. The Chalmers girls grew up surrounded by vines and after pursuing their own independent careers for ten years - Kim in music and Tennille in hospitality - they have both succumbed to the inherent passion for viticulture and vino and joined the family business of growing grapes and making wine. Le Sorelle is a single vineyard Heathcote shiraz from the Chalmers vineyard on the northern end of the Mt Camel range. The vines for the Le Sorelle Shiraz were propagated from a special vine selection out of the Chalmers family's original nursery block. Le Sorelle shiraz is grown in the famous red Cambrian earth of the region, tended with care, hand picked and made in small quantities each vintage.
