Product details

  • Winemaker

    Ben Glaetzer
  • Variety

    Shiraz
  • Black appearance with a narrow purple rim. Really intense blackcurrant, mint, violet and eucalyptus aromas. Similarly intense on the palate yet exceptionally well-balanced: neither heavy nor overbearing. It opens up to display more and more complexity the longer it airs, so either decant it or pour into the glass 10-15 minutes before you drink it.

    Irresistible already, it should age gracefully until at least 2018.

Press ReviewPress

"..a full bodied and spicy Shiraz wine from Heartland. Made by Ben Glaetzer and his partners, this is a classic Aussie Shiraz wine, the sort that I fell in love with all those years ago. Dense, ripe blackberry fruits intermingle with star anise and smokey, cracked peppers, all smoothed off by a coating of soft vanilla from 14 months in oak barrels. A balanced palate with lots of oomph!"

Tom ForrestEvening Standard

Winemaking

2012 was a low-yielding year that produced exceptional quality. A long and relatively cool ripening season allowed for full development of the fruit flavours alongside fresh natural acidity. The best vintage in a long time. The fruit was crushed, then pumped over twice a day for nine days to enhance colour and flavour. Fermentation with Rhône isolate yeast was at 18°-24°C. Extended maceration resulted in savoury, supple tannins and an approachable palate. The wine matured for 14 months in French and American oak hogsheads (300 litre barrels) prior to bottling.
