Made by the legendary Barossa winemaker, Ben Glaetzer, Heartland Shiraz showcases the quality of the Langhorne Creek region, southeast of Adelaide and McLaren Vale in South Australia. An answer to classic Australian Shiraz at a value-driven price point, this wine shows all the notes characteristic of the iconic style. A purple rim encompasses a core of deep ruby. The aromas are surprisingly dominated by red rather than black fruits and hints of spice. The blackberry fruit of the palate is accompanied by a playlist of spices, with cinnamon and licorice on high rotation. This little ripper is rich enough for cold winter nights and generous enough to match anything the grill has to offer.
"This is delicious! It is bordering on sweetness but doesn't cross the line for me. The nose is ample with ripe blackcurrant/cassis, eucalyptus, pepper and vanillin nicely integrated. It is medium-full bodied, soft yet lively. Tannins are quite fine, alcohol is warm but not abrasive. The length is excellent."
