Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless vines were saved by master Ed Schild from complete annihilation. One of the smallest yielding blocks in the land, Moorooroo endures as one of the world's most illustrious vineyards... The fruit of vines established 1836»

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.
