Heartland Wine Shiraz

Heartland Wine Shiraz


Heartland is the place between the vines that offers the best view of the gum trees.

We produce wines that remain true to the recognized Australian style, and the cool climate of Langhorne Creek. Heartland Shiraz is a pure expression of Australia’s most iconic variety.

Winemaker: Ben Glaetzer Region: Langhorne Creek Soil: Sandy loam Variety: Shiraz

Tasting Notes: The deep ruby colour predicts aromas of black currants and smokehouse bacon. These notes are accompanied on the palate by dark chocolate and a wisp of pepper spice. The power and intensity of the wine is undeniable and well beyond expectation.

Vinification: The Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for ten days. The wine matured for 12 months in oak prior to bottling. The low yields of fruit offered wonderful concentration. We believe that Heartland Shiraz is going from strength to strength. Demand suggests we might be right.

2017 Vintage: 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. 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 Age of vines: 20+ years Time in barrel: 12 month Cellaring Potential: 5-10 years Age of barrels: 0 – 4 years Oak Type: Selected French and American barrels in combination [300 litre] Suitable for vegans: Yes

Murphy Vineyard Shiraz

Murphy Vineyard Shiraz

This attractive, fruit-driven Shiraz comes from the Murphy family’s vineyards in Australia’s Murray Darling region where they have grown grapes since 1909.
Cherry red with hints of dark plum and chocolate on the nose. The wine is seamlessly balanced with sweet lifted fruit, subtle oak and soft tannins, a delicious wine made to enjoy now.

Harvested at full ripeness, the grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for seven days with regular pumpovers to extract colour and flavour. After pressing, the wine was aged with select French and American oak before blending and bottling.

The Murphy family have grown grapes in the Murray Darling region of Australia, part of the Big Rivers, since 1909. They build on this experience to create their fruit-driven wines.
The grape selection and winemaking practices at Murphy Vineyards aim to highlight the fruit flavours with these appealing wines that show ripe fruit aromas and soft, rich palates. Murphy Vineyards have selected, from their own plantings, Chardonnay and Shiraz grapes of good sound quality which have displayed true varietal expression in the final wine.

Inviting on the nose with rich fruit aromas & medicinal hints. On the palate big, rich & soft all the way through with lovely bramble & blackberry fruit flavours followed by just a hint of spice. Fantastic value at this price

Rolf Binder Hales Shiraz

Rolf Binder Hales Shiraz

This deep cherry red wine fills the glass with aromas reminiscent of sweet red berries. Dark cherries enhanced with liquorice, cassis, hints of vanilla and blueberries on the medium bodied palate. Ripe tannins and a complex acidity lend to the overall perception of a smooth, approachable red wine, with a nice persistence of flavour.

Vintage conditions
Things started well for 2015 with above average early winter rains that filled the soils and dams. Spring was drier and warmer than average, meaning the vines got away to a good healthy start. In the second week of January, a nice amount of rain fell, which kept vines healthy and grapes ripening. In fact the ripening conditions were perfect, and February did nothing to stop the ripening or hinder quality, being warm to hot during the day, cool at night and almost completely dry. March was also very dry and average in temperature with most of the vintage harvested before its end. 2015 could well go down as another really great Barossa Valley vintage.
Vinification details
The Shiraz for this wine was picked over a period of three weeks, coming from vineyards in the inner west and northern reaches of the Barossa. All batches were crushed as one, using traditional pump over or heading downboards during the fermentation. After pressing, the seperate free run juice and pressings were blended back together. Maturation was done in a majority of shaven American and French oak hogshead barrels.

Christa and Rolf form the heart of Rolf Binder wines, continuing a family wine-making tradition that spans nearly 60 years. Their parents arrived in Australia in 1950 – just two amongst the many post-war immigrants from Europe – and met a grape grower in the Barossa while working to help pay for their assisted passage. From such unlikely beginnings, a passion for the Barossa was born, a winery was purchased and a new life began. They soon came to appreciate the riches of the Barossa, the old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache, and were at the forefront of many old vine varietal blends. Now Christa and Rolf are taking the winery into the 21st century, with Rolf forging a world-wide reputation for his red wines while Christa takes the plaudits for her white wines.
