A lovely, juicy red blend from Heartland by legend Ben Glaetzer. The Australian's are the most successful country in the world at blending Cabernet and Shiraz. This delicious wine has equal portions of these which give richness, texture and structure and 5% of the French grape Grenache which gives it a lift of bright, juicy fruit. Produced from vines up to 20 years old from the highly under rated Langhorne Creek region ( close to Coonawarra ) this is fresh and dark in colour with hints of herb and spice to complimenting obvioius black fruit characters of plum and blackcurrant. This is a seriously good red at an everyday price.

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.
