Wild Duck Creek Estate, located in the countryside around Heathcote, was established in 1981 by David & Diana Anderson and comprises nine acres of vineyard with fruit sourced from another seven vineyards in the area. The Duck Muck Shiraz (about 200 cases or less are produced) is made only in exceptional vintages. Robert Parker Jr.: " Sadly, only 70 cases of the 1997 vintage were produced... There is no doubting the extraordinary character and personality winemaker David Anderson has constructed... Opaque black purple-coloured, with a viscosity resembling vintage port, this thick, chewy Shiraz exhibits a panorama of black fruits intermixed with liquorice, tar, roasted herbs, and sweet oak. The acidity and tannin appear to be missing because of the wine's wealth of fruit, glycerine, and extract. It is a surreal, other-worldly style of Shiraz that needs to be sipped rather than gulped given its power and intensity." 99/100 RP Jr. 2000.
