A new addition to the Heartland range and probably the wine to impress the most at the tasting. In the difficult 2011 vintage, Heartland, unlike some other companies, honoured their contracts with the local growers. As Nick said, this was a costly exercise for them, but at least it meant they could still have a beer at the local pub and the growers could continue in business. Ultimately though the reward came back to them many fold. In the excellent 2012 and now 2013 vintage, they were offered fruit from previously unavailable vineyards. This is from older vine fruit and is big and luscious. Black fruit compote, dense, with fine grainy tannins and mouth coating. Impressive.
92/100 Wine Enthusiast (2013 Vintage)
"Baking spices and vibrant cassis set up the nose of this Cabernet. Those same elements are apparent on the palate, where the wine is full-bodied and solidly built. Cinnamon and cocoa notes add a dusty feel to the lingering finish. Drink now–2025."
91/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2013 Vintage)
"Inky ruby. Vibrant, smoke-accented dark berries, cracked pepper and a hint of mocha on the perfumed nose. Silky, seamless and pliant, offering sweet blackberry and blueberry compote flavours and a repeating peppery quality. Gentle tannins provide shape to the very long, spicy finish, which leaves a suave blue quality behind."
