Heartland Wine Stickleback Red

A new vintage means a new blend for Stickleback Red. The Stickleback blend is chosen for optimum flavour and texture, with each variety bringing a unique character to the wine. Our aim as always is to satisfy that expectation of consistent quality for our friends.

“The Only Thing That Is Constant Is Change” – Heraclitus of Ephesus

Winemaker: Ben Glaetzer Region: Langhorne Creek Soil: Sandy loam Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 74% Shiraz 24% Lagrein 2% Tasting notes: Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz give this wine a rich, savoury character and good structure. A splash of Lagrein contributes spice & tannin. The tightness and structure of the Lagrein, pulls the wine together and makes this blend a perfect match with food. Vinification: Each individual variety was fermented on skins for 5 days before pressing. Maturation in 2 and 3-year-old oak barrels. All ferments were kept cool to enhance the aromatics and to keep the tannins soft.

2015 Vintage: Good winter rainfall offered cover crops for a moistureretaining 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 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.

Alc/Vol: 14.5% Maturation vessel: 100% oak Oak type: French & American Age of barrels: 2-3 years Time in barrel: 12 months Age of vines: 15-20 years

Today Heartland sources all of its fruit exclusively from Langhorne Creek and makes only red wines.
Heartland is about consistently achieving the best flavour possible in the vineyard, and converting this natural flavour into outstanding wines. Access to great fruit is the most vital element in making great wine. Langhorne Creek has given us this element.
This cool climate region with its old vines has been a source for many of Australia’s most iconic red wines.
Sadly, this contribution is rarely noted on the back label. Now, along with an exciting new group of producers in the region, we are fighting to take Langhorne Creek’s rightful place in the hearts, minds and palates of wine lovers around the world.

Each authentically crafted with fruit from South Australia’s most celebrated wine regions. We hope that the glass of wine you hold in your hand right now marks the beginning of a delicious journey, and we look forward to sharing our love of wine as you explore the Y Series.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS Summer was dry and warm leading up to Christmas, resulting in a vintage that was two weeks earlier than average. These conditions meant that the vines were able to ripen the grapes seamlessly, producing an abundance of flavour. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation, and also 3 – 5 days post fermentation has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build solid wine structure.
TASTING NOTES Deep crimson purple in colour, this wine shows intense youthful aromas of dark, ripe cherries, Christmas pudding, Indian spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and ripe and embodies a classic South Australian Shiraz, with layers of ripe blackberries and Christmas cake, surrounded by soft, juicy, ripe tannins.
This wine drinks perfectly with whole roast suckling pig; or shallot pancakes with black vinegar dipping sauce.

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.
