The top cut of Shiraz, from vines up to thirty years of age, grown to sandy loam soils, planted to splendid sites at Langhorne Creek, including the eminent Teangi and Pasquin vineyards. A black jube and lozenge style of Shiraz, beautifully of articulated dark fruits, cherries and cassis, supported by lithe hints of spice box and anise. Seductively rich on the palate, as flavours of dark chocolates and plum unwind along the impressive length of supple, focused tannin. Uncannily European in style, a palate of old world savouryness and wonderful, textural mouthfeel.
Fruit is harvested at night and crushed into small open top fermenters. After a day's skin contact, the musts are inoculated to a Rhône isolate yeast, chosen for its ability to ferment efficiently at cooler temperatures. Following several days of vinification on skins, hand plunged thrice daily, batches are transferred to a selection of completely new French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic. Director's Cut is topped up and treated to a weekly battonage over six months. Barrels are racked and refilled for a further term of maturation.

About Heartland Winery
Heartland Wines was created by a small group of leading South Australian wine identities who are all good friends and share a passion for making great wine
Founding Winemakers include Ben Glaetzer, fifth generation viticulturist Geoff Hardy, winemaker Scott Collett, vineyard manager John Pargeter and wine industry professional Grant Tilbrook. It was a natural progression for these good friends to pool their resources and expertise to establish their own label. All Heartland wines are made with fruit from the directors' own, mature vineyards at Limestone Coast (23km north of Padthaway) and Langhorne Creek (east of Adelaide, on the Fleurieu Peninsula - one of Australia's oldest wine regions) Heartland»
