HEARTLAND STICKLEBACK SHIRAZ
Heartland is that place between the vines with the best view of the gum trees. When they first got together to start Heartland all those years ago, the idea was to embrace the best Australian fruit could offer and create wines of balance and texture with a uniquely Australian identity. They found a pure expression of this identity in Langhorne Creek. This has remained the chief source of their fruit ever since.
Barossa Vintners is the first of its kind. Conceived as a state-of-the-art winemaking facility with the capacity to make wines for a core group of top end producers whose fame and demand had grown beyond their winemaking capacities. Completed in 1995, Barossa Vintners was developed by these industry leaders to minimize labour needs in the winery and make wines in the most natural possible way. The natural slope of the land allows the winery to be gravity fed and avoid harsh pumping of the grapes and juice.
This produces wine chock-full of vibrant blackberry fruit flavours, notes of chocolate and plum with a bit of spice to boot, this flavoursome Shiraz is out of the Ben Glaetzer stable, so has a guaranteed pedigree status among its peers. Cracking value for money!
