Xavier Bizot can make wine anywhere he pleases, he is a Bollinger and grew up amongst the Vignobles Superieurs of Champagne. Bizot has chosen to make wine alongside Brian Croser's family, from grapes harvested off three magnificent sites, on two paradoxically varied terrains. Planted to the salubrious Terra rosa soils atop an invaluable archeological dig at Wrattonbully, rich with the undisturbed fossils of ancient Cenozoic sea animals, Crayeres Vineyard was established right across the road from Tapanappa's illustrious Whalebone. The weather here is astonishingly similar to Bordeaux and makes an awesome Cabernet Franc. Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser are also fortunate to take their pick of properties in Adelaide Hills. To wit, Charles (Chilly) Hargrave's distinguished old vines at Summerton and a highly opportune slice of a slope on the lofty altitudes of Piccadilly Valley... The twin tales of terre a terre»

The Heartland team are in an enviable position to identify the finest vineyards and to assemble the choicest harvests. Shiraz grapes are crushed, the musts are treated to several days of skin contact and inoculated through the action of a Rhône isolate yeast. Ferments are pumped over twice daily throughout the vinification at temperatures between 18C and 24C, enhancing the colour, contributing an intensity of flavour and developing ripe tannins. Extended maceration achieves savoury, long chain tannins which contribute to a soft, approachable palate. The finished wine is matured fourteen months in a selection of new to four years old French and American oak hogsheads.
Vibrant purple hues, deep ruby core. Nose has masses of black fruits, red currant and spice in support of hints of espresso and dried spice notes. On the palate, the wine is soft yet maintains expressions of cassis, anise and earth. Savoury and rich, balanced and restrained, a generously proportioned Shiraz endowed with good fruit and supported by the smoothest tannins.
