Heartland Wines is the brainchild of winemaker Ben Glaetzer. Founded in 2002, Heartland produces wines that highlight the unique terroir of Langhorne Creek and the Limestone Coast, two of Southern Australia’s most highly regarded wine appellations. Ben is part of a larger family winemaking legacy, his father is respected winemaker Colin Glaetzer and his two brothers are also winemakers. Ben is passionate about wine and exploring the differences in terroir – ergo, his multiple winemaking responsibilities at Heartland, Glaetzer, Mitolo, and Woodstock. Heartland owns 1,000 acres of mature vineyards in Langhorne Creek and the Limestone Coast which are planted on deep limestone foundation with sandy loam and grey marl topsoil. From these estate grown grapes, Ben produces three different ranges of wine – the modestly priced Stickleback, the mid-priced Coast and Creek range and the premium Directors’ Cut. This tiered approach was deliberately crafted to ”give the drinker stepping stones…and making each level deliver more quality than its price would suggest,” says Ben. ”My aspiration is to allow anyone who buys one of my wines, irrespective of its price point, to see a snapshot of my vineyards, vintage and history.”

Tasting notes
A rich, food-friendly, balanced wine that offers fragrant aromas of black cherries, mulberries and plums, these notes are complemented by hints of spicy oak, licorice and vanilla notes. Finely grained tannins carry flavors of chocolate and dark fruit through to the bright, long finish.

Technical notes
Cabernet Sauvignon from 14-16 year old vines planted in Langhorne Creek (85%) and the Limestone Coast (15%) on sandy loam and grey marl was crushed into 10 ton open-top fermentors and left on its skins to cold macerate for three days. The wine was fermented in oak and aged in 2-4 year-old French (80%) and American oak (20%) for 12 months.
