From vines planted to sandy loam soils at Langhorne Creek yielding two tons/acre, with a smaller component of fruit grown to grey marl over deep limestone soils. Fruit is crushed into ten tonnes open top fermenters and left on skins to cold macerate for three days prior to inoculation by a Rhône isolate yeast. Maximum ferment temperatures of 26°C encourage tannin extraction while maintaining freshness of aromatics. The wine is pressed to barrel for completion of malolactic then racked and returned into a mix of two to four year old French and American oaks for a year. The finished wine exhibits fantastic colour with fleshy, rounded tannins and impressive structure.
Vibrant ruby in colour. Wonderfully fragrant with a lifted nose of black cherries, mulberry and plums, complemented by spicy oak characters of tobacco and vanilla. The palate displays plummy, blackcurrant jam notes with a hint of mocha. A rich, textural wine, savoury, fine grain tannins and fresh acidity. Match Heartland with a tomato and red wine osso bucco or a grill of rosemary venison saucisson.
