    Reviews

    This is a throwback to those brash, flavor-exuding Aussie wines of the past. Flashy, sweet-scented oak (think maple syrup and toasted coconut) marks the nose, while concentrated cassis and vanilla flavors coat the palate. This is big, but gorgeously so, with velvety-rich tannins and a long, plush finish. No, there's nothing subtle about this blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Shiraz, but sometimes subtlety is overrated. 95pts

    Tasting Notes

    The sheer intensity of this wine in its youth tends to obscure the multilayered collection of herbs and spices that track the unstoppable expansion of fruit on the palate. This densely purple wine of powerful dark fruit is complemented by velvety texture and a complex and lingering finish.

    Vinification

    The best grapes from the finest vineyards in Langhorne Creek are recruited to create Heartland One. The fruit was harvested at night and then crushed to small open top stainless steel fermenters. After 24 hours of skin contact, fermentation was commenced with our Rhône isolate yeast. Following 8 days of cool fermentation on skins and hand-plunging three times daily, the wine was transferred to new oak hogsheads (both French and American) for malolactic transformation, racking and a further 14 months of maturation.

    Vintage

    Spring frosts and the nature of the old vines combined to offer us only the smallest of harvests for Heartland One in 2013. Although quantities a very low, the gentle ripening season has yielded a wine of enormous potential.
