Heartland Foreign Correspondent

Foreign Correspondent is a hard hitting exploration of fruit character. Red berries zip around the mouth. They are enhanced by a sprinkling of herbs and spices. This is an uncompromising, elegant and sophisticated way to enjoy a relaxing glass of red that pairs with everything from fine food to fine company. Serve cold for maximum enjoyment.

The Dolcetto and Lagrein were picked early for maximum freshness. The two were then fermented for 24 hours at very low temperature before being taken off skins for a remarkable lightness of colour and tannin. No oak was used for this wine which was left in stainless steel for six months before cold stabilization and bottling.

A fun wine with an intriguing label – exposing flavour and truth it reads. Dolcetto and Lagrein seeing no oak. Hello Saturday BBQ! A blend 95/5 only seeing stainless steel for six months. Get fresher. Whiffs of peppered steak, tilled black earth and juicy red berries, its soft through the mouth. There’s good weight and the fruit fills out accordingly before dried herbs rise up late. A long peppery finish hangs and pleads for some meat to hold its hand. Sausages or steak or both plus a BBQ for the win. A wine you can easily chill to make it even more versatile during the warmer months. Drink now to three years. 10/2018

The Heartland story began in the late 1990’s 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 more recently Nick Keukenmeester, they grew Heartland into an award-winning winery.

Heartland Wines – The Heartland story began in the late 1990’s 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 more recently Nick Keukenmeester, they grew Heartland into an award-winning winery.
“A really important point I want to get across is we’re not a group of investors that have got together and poured cash into it for the sake of doing it. We are at the coalface of it.”

Today Heartland sources all of its fruit exclusively from Langhorne Creek and makes only red wines.

Langhorne Creek

Langhorne Creek is a little known region with major importance, especially for the production of red wine. Fragrant Cabernet Sauvignon with its minty overtones is the most significant product of the region. Viticulture dates from the 1850s when Frank Potts established Bleasdale the region’s only winery to stay in continuous production. It was only in the 1990s that the major wine companies started setting up in the region. Its significance being the availability and certainty of irrigation water from the Murray-Darling system, providing the facility to grow grapes of very good quality at relatively low costs. It has a mild climate with little variation across the region. The main wine styles: Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.
