Silky and superb, this Langhorne Cabernet showcases Glaetzer's skill. It isn't just beautifully balanced and black-fruited it also has...well, X factor. It oozes harmony and delivers serious satisfaction. Even in this phenomenal Heartland range, Halliday calls this one a "stand out release".

Overview

Cabernet Sauvignon

Its Origins

Owner and winemaker Ben Glaetzer’s work in Langhorne Creek is one of the most exciting stories in Australia today. Heartland Wines came out of a lunch in 1999 between Ben and three friends, and a fear that rather than expressing the diversity of sites and rich history of the country, Australian wines were heading in a generic, commercial direction. Ben had grown excited at older, high quality vineyards he had seen in the cool-climate Langhorne Creek area, Australia’s oldest settled wine region, one hour south of Adelaide and southeast of McLaren Vale. With a temperature summation approximately equivalent to Alsace, the best Langhorne Creek vineyards benefit from very cool nights that offset warm days, with temperature swings that can reach nearly 40 degrees within a day. The Heartland Wines from Langhorne Creek display the originality and appeal of the area’s regional and varietal characteristics – they are food-friendly, balanced wines offering tremendous value.

What The Critics Say

93/100 James Halliday

"Matured in both French and American oak. Stand out release under this label and excellent value. Essence-like blackcurrant and dried herb notes with a lift of mint. Fruit does the overwhelming majority of the talking. Freshness, flavour and texture all impress."

92/100 Campbell Mattinson, the Wine Front

"This release is on song. Bold fruited, soft textured, varietal and vibrant. Flavours of pure blackcurrant, dust and dried herbs, mint. Not a great deal of flavour from oak, but the wine’s feeling of polish and smoothness is no doubt oak-assisted. You can drink this young; there’s no need to cellar it. It would please the vast majority of Aussie red wine drinkers."
