Heartland is the place between the vines that offers the best view of the gum trees. We produce wines that remain true to the recognized Australian style, and the cool climate of Langhorne Creek. Heartland Shiraz is a pure expression of Australia’s most iconic variety.
Winemaker: Ben Glaetzer
Region: Langhorne Creek
Soil: Sandy loam
Tasting Notes: The deep ruby colour shows the warmth of the latter part of vintage. Aromas are of black currants pepper. The palate has all the berry fruit and dark chocolate and pepper spice. The power and intensity of the vintage is undeniable.
Vinification: The Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for ten days. The wine matured for 14 months in oak prior to bottling. The low yields of fruit offered wonderful concentration.
2015 Vintage: Good winter rainfall provided cover crops for a moisture retaining mulch throughout the dry spring and summer. The lack of rainfall over the growing period led to lower yields. Summer saw mostly cool temperatures. The Langhorne Creek wine region benefits from cooling afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina and this season was no exception. The welcome breezes helped keep overnight temperatures down, enabling fruit to maintain natural acidity. 2015 saw an early vintage with most fruit off by early April.
