Heartland Wine Spice Trader

Heartland Wine Spice Trader

This is a rich, ripe Shiraz-Cab blend from Langhorne Creek in South Australia. The nose opens with aromas of cola, plums, olive and ground black pepper backed by hints of mint and vanillin oak. The palate is bold, plush and sweet-fruited, with chunky oak that shows up particularly on the finish.

The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are fermented separately with specific parcels included for their ability to offer greater complexity and character. Time in barrel permits a softening of the wine’s structure. It also offers a complex expression of the fruit and helps the exotic notes of spice to be discovered.

This is a very dark glass of juicy and delicious red. A burst of intense primary fruit greets the palate with blueberries, blackberries and currants. These powerful fruit notes can engulf the uninitiated, but waves of spice can be discovered by seasoned flavour explorers.

Good winter rainfall provided cover crops for a moisture retaining mulch throughout the dry spring and summer. The lack of rainfall over the growing period led to lower yields. Summer saw mostly cool temperatures and an early vintage with most of the region’s fruit off by early April. The Langhorne Creek wine region benefits from cooling afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina and this season was no exception. The welcome breezes helped keep overnight temperatures down, enabling fruit to maintain natural acidity.

Today, the Heartland winery produces only red wines and Langhorne Creek is the only area where the winery gets its grapes from.
Located at just about an hour’s drive away from Adelaide, Langhorne Creek is one of the most ancient wine regions in Australia. Some of the country’s oldest and lesser-known viticulture methods are employed for growing the vines here. The southerly-wind dominated climate and alluvial-rich sandy loam soil are two of the main reasons for the full character and flavour of the grapes grown here. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and their related blends are the common varietals grown here.

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

Franklin Tate Cabernet Merlot

These Bordeaux varieties were processed individually with a portion fermented in open fermenters at temperatures up to 28°C. Control of tannin extraction and flavour preservation, were integral in the fermentation. Wine was pressed to Bordeaux style French oak, to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was blended from its components after maturation. The Merlot adds plush fruit and leafy characters as well as providing juicy acidity, in contrast to the Cabernet Sauvignon’s structured, but ripe tannin profile.

Vibrant crimson core with a lighter hue. Lifted aromas of blackcurrant and ripe dark plums with hints of black olive, sage and spices. Flavours of ripe blackcurrants and dark plums dominant the palate with a savoury hint of black olive. The fruit is integrated with oak flavours of cinnamon and cedar spice. Chalky tannins give this wine length.

The Googly Chardonnay

One Chain The Googly Chardonnay

The Googly Chardonnay

Chardonnay The Googly by One Chain Vineyards , part of the cricket series. The imperial length of a cricket pitch is one chain or 22 yards hence the name of this series of wine, and the Googly is the famed killer ball delivered by spin bowlers.

This Chardonnay is sourced from cooler climate vineyards to give a delicious, tangy white wine. Crisp, lively and bright, this citrus scented Chardonnay is well balanced, with tropical fruit and melon on the palate before presenting a vibrant, textured finish. Light, zingy and well balanced.

You really don’t need to be a connoisseur of the game to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of this Chardonnay.

Bethany Semillon.

Bethany Semillon

Bethany Semillon

From one of the small family-owned iconic brands of the Barossa, who have evolved the traditionally rich, oaked style of Semillon into a brighter, fresher interpretation.
 
In the glass: Pale lemon.
On the nose: Youthful lift of ripe citrus with touches of straw and talc.
On the palate: A nicely balanced expression of Barossa Valley Semillon that’s clean, lemony and quite intense. It features a vibrant, juicy core of appealing fruit flavours and crisp, citrussy acidity.

With some of the oldest vines in the Barossa, Bethany Wines has special place in the region’s winemaking story.

Johann Gottlob Schrapel and his family arrived from Silesia on the George Washington in 1844. This was just eight years after South Australia was settled. Like many Silesian migrants, they travelled by ox cart to Bethany (Bethanien), and established the Barossa’s first settlement.

Johann planted the first vineyard in 1852 from cuttings carried from Europe. He built a wine cellar and had reputation as a winemaker. Despite this our family were grape growers for the next four generations.

In 1981, fifth generation brothers Robert and Geoff established Bethany Wines. They built a winery in the quarry where the early pioneers had hewn stone for their homes. They crushed 2 tonnes of Shiraz and Riesling, launching the next chapter of the Schrapel wine story.

The early 1980s were tough for Barossa grape growers. A glut followed a red wine boom and grape prices fell below production cost. The State Government wanted growers to pull out old Shiraz and Grenache vines. They encouraged growers to plant new varieties or leave the industry.

Fortunately, the brothers chose to establish a tradition of winemaking from this undervalued yet irreplaceable resource of old vineyards.

Paulett Polish River Shiraz

Paulett Polish River Shiraz

2015 Vintage was almost certainly the earliest and shortest on record, both yields and quality have been above average in most circumstances. A dry and mild spring lead into a mild early summer and it wasn’t until February that “normal” summer conditions really emerged. A very welcome 75mm of rain was received in the second week of January, and this certainly assisted in filling out berry size and maintaining good canopy and leaf condition which in turn really helped bring the vintage to a better-than-expected conclusion.

Tasting Notes
It has leather & spice and all things nice… perfectly balanced, luscious, and ready for your enjoyment
Colour
Dark red with a purple hue
Nose
Dark fruits, plum, cherry, blackberry and spice supported by mocha and chocolate notes.
Palate
A rich and conentrated palate supported by bright and vibrnat dark fruit. Fine tannin structure and acidity provides an elegant structure, balance and length.
Food Pairings
Roast Beef or Osso Bucco

Since the first vintage in 1983 there have been many accolades received from within Australia and internationally including the great 1995 vintage winning both the Top Riesling at the Hyatt/Advertiser awards and Best Riesling in the Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide. The 2005 Aged Release Riesling won ‘Best Riesling in the World’, at the 2010 Canberra International Riesling Challenge . When asked about these accolades Neil said “This kind of recognition against all-comers is particularly rewarding however there is just as much of a thrill walking into a restaurant seeing people enjoying a bottle of our wine”.
Pauletts reputation for producing wines of finesse, elegance and intensity is justly earned and their skill and care can be seen consistently from vintage to vintage. Neil has a craftsman’s sensibilities coupled with over 40 years experience making wine – and it all shows. The current release wines have a touch more roundness and generosity than previously and it’s these subtle on-going improvements that have kept Pauletts at the forefront of Australian wine.
