    2016 Heartland Shiraz - This is a Wednesday wine that I drank on Tuesday. Why a Wednesday wine I hear you not ask? Well, because a Wednesday wine is a wine that sets you up for the upcoming weekend and you really don’t care what it is. This wine could’ve done that, but it made me sit-up straight, look at it right between the label and question why it’s less than $20!!! Ben Glaetzer has created a cool climate wine that’s adapted to you. Great approachability with subtle raspberry and pepper berry notes up front that meld through the palate and add oak and more warming cinnamon spices with a great and unexpected length. My take away from this wine is that you’d be hard pressed to find a better red from Langhorne Creek for under $20.

    Tasting Notes

    A purple rim encompasses a core of deep ruby. The aromas are surprisingly dominated by red rather than black fruits and hints of spice. The blackberry fruit of the palate is accompanied by a playlist of spices, with cinnamon and licorice on high rotation.

    Vinification

    The Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for ten days. The wine was matured in older oak barrels for twelve months prior to bottling.

    Vintage

    Steady winter rainfall and multiple flood events gave us a good storage of moisture and healthy vines leading into the growing season. Higher than average summer temperatures have offered up robust fruit characters that Shiraz loves to present.
