Shiraz, Heartland, 75cl
Winemaker Ben Glaetzer has teamed up with two of Australia’s leading wine professionals - Grant Tilbrook and Vicki Arnold to create individual wines with strong varietal and regional characteristics under the Heartland label. All wines are from Heartland’s own vineyards in Langhorne Creek and Limestone Coast, South Australia. Langhorne Creek (40 miles east of Adelaide), is one of Australia’s oldest viticultural regions, the first plantings being in 1850. It is known for producing reds with rich, opulent mouthfeel and fine tannins. The Limestone Coast (160 miles south east of Adelaide) has the same terra rossa soil of its famous, slightly cooler neighbour, Coonawarra. The long, cool growing season contributes great finesse and elegance, and grapes are harvested at night to retain natural acidity and freshness. All wines are made at the Heartland winery in the Barossa Valley, giving Ben Glaetzer complete quality control from grape to glass. This is a selection of distinctive wines at great prices. Fragrant, spicy, juicy and full bodied. A dark, rich purple colour. This delicious black Shiraz has hints of chocolate, menthol and tobacco leaf of the nose. Plums, blackcurrant and spice flavours abound on the palate and are perfectly balanced by fine, supple tannins.
