Heartland Shiraz 2014
The dark colour preempts a wine of dense, layered black fruit. The aromas of anise and cracked pepper are enveloped in classic blackberry. The glass coating texture gives way to freshness on the finish resulting in a fine balance. The structure imparted by oak and skin contact integrates well with the bright, but intense fruit.
The Wine Front – Langhorne Creek shiraz, always made in hearty style. This release is particularly hearty. It’s definitely and defiantly full-bodied. Chocolatey, clovey, toasty oak sits slightly separate from the fruit, but still manages to aid the cause – and then some. Tar, saltbush and blackberries. Loaded up. Moutfilling. Dense to look at and to taste. Slippery-smooth. I’m pretty sure you’ve got the idea. Lovers of a Big Red, ready for drinking now, should be right onto this.
World Wine – Not a hair out of place. Hearty blackberry and tar flavours come laced with chocolate and peppercorn. Attacks with flavour from the start and doesn't let go. Value.
In a mixed or straight case: $19.94
