Heartland Sposa e Sposa 2014 £15.95
HEARTLAND SPOSA E SPOSA
The Heartland story began in the late 1990s when winemaker Ben Glaetzer became excited about the outstanding quality of fruit being grown in some of South Australia’s lesser-known regions, in particular, Langhorne Creek.
Together with industry veterans, Scott Collett, Grant Tilbrook and Nick Keukenmeester, they grew Heartland into an award-winning winery, producing the first vintage in 2001.
2014 followed the classic road of a late vintage accompanying a late Easter. Deep soil moisture from a traditional winter flood bolstered us against the warm summer days, as did the cooling Langhorne Creek winds. The longer ripening period gave us intense and complex Lagrein fruit that gives Sposa e Sposa true depth.
The fascinating Lagrein shows great complexity now that the vines have some age. Look for blackberries and black spice! The Dolcetto softens the palate and offers a burst of fruit to please and entice. This is designed for immediate pleasure but has enough structure for a few years of cellaring.
The Dolcetto was cool fermented on skins for seven days before being crushed and matured in stainless steel in order to preserve the fresh, floral notes of the variety. The Lagrein was matured new French oak barrels after fermentation to create a rounder, softer texture.
