Grant Tilbrook, Scott Collett and Ben Glaetzer form the backbone and foundation of Heartland Wines. 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.
Tasting notes:
This is an intense glass of juicy and delicious red. A burst of dark primary fruit hits the palate with a compote of blueberries, blackberries and currants. These powerful fruit notes can engulf the uninitiated, but waves of spice, fresh spearmint and dried herbs can be discovered by seasoned flavor explorers.
