    Reviews

    Rock solid Cabernet. For the money, the consumer is the winner. It's not a rock star by any stretch but all elements are just where they need to be. Blackcurrant and berry fruits and wrapped in a neat parcel of dried herbs, tomato bush and faint mintiness. A touch firmish in the mouth but the finish is long and seemingly endless. Good stuff. Drink now to eight years+ 89/100

    Tasting Notes

    2016 will be a small and fleeting vintage for Heartland, but I expect we will sing its praises for years to come. The Cabernet Sauvignon is at its elegant best and the surpassing length of flavor is matched by the mouthfeel and layers of aroma that precede it.

    Vinification

    The fruit was crushed into 8 tonne open fermenters, left on skins to cold macerate for three days prior to fermentation. Fermentation occurred at or under 23Β°C (with a RhΓ΄ne isolate yeast). This helped to extract the skin tannin while maintaining aromatics. The wine underwent its malolactic transformation in oak, was then racked and returned to French and American oak for a 12-month maturation.

    Vintage

    Ben reckons this might be the finest vintage he has ever seen from Langhorne Creek. Only time will tell. Harvest was more generous than the previous few years, with above average quantity and quality. Total degree days were up from the last three years, with wonderful ripeness levels recorded leading to amazing fruit intensity. This may supersede the 2012 vintage for overall quality and has led to a very happy winemaker.
