Tasting Notes

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."

The Producer

Heartland

The Heartland story began in the late 1990’s when winemaker Ben Glaetzer became excited about the outstanding quality of fruit being grown in some of South Australia’s lesser-known regions, in particular Langhorne Creek. Together with industry veterans, Scott Collett, Grant Tilbrook and more recently Nick Keukenmeester, they grew Heartland into an award-winning winery. “A really important point I want to get across is we’re not a group of investors that have got together and poured cash into it for the sake of doing it. We are at the coalface of it.” Today Heartland sources all of its fruit exclusively from Langhorne Creek and makes only red wines.
