Overview

Grape

Shiraz/Syrah

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

Huon Hooke

"Deep, rich red colour with a brick tint, and a savoury bouquet of earthy, smoky, foresty nuances and minty oak rather than primal fruit, the palate also rich, textured and deep in savoury flavours. There's lots of of evidence of oak maturation. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and very much a savoury style, barrel-developed and more than just simple primary fruit. 26 SEP 2018."

91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate (2012 vintage)

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz explodes with creme de cassis, blueberry pie and mint aromas accented by hints of licorice and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, rich and packed with warm black and blueberry fruit flavors, it has a medium to firm level of fine, rounded tannins and a long, spicy finish with lively lift. Drink it now to 2018+."
