Heartland is that place between the vines with the best view of the gum trees. You might be in another part of Australia or another part of the world …but you can taste it from where you are. 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 Nick Keukenmeester, they grew Heartland into an award-winning winery, producing the first vintage in 2001.

The 2016 vintage offers a clarity of vision that will allow 2016 Heartland One to grow and prosper for many years to come. The intensity of this wine provides all the impetus required for long term cellaring, while the deft handling of oak and the finely tuned acidity will ensure that it stays on track to be a balanced and generous wine. Dark fruit dominates the palate at this stage, while the structure delivers on what you woudl expect from this fine wine.




Good vintage, classy wine. A compelling combination. This excellent blend of cabernet and shiraz from the 2016 vintage is only just, and ever so just, starting to see some initial development. But it is so far from where it will finish. Rich and smooth dark chocolate and dark fruit characters merge seamlessly with the cedary oak and fine chalky tannins. There’s a slightly liqueur fruit thing happening there. A great example of what this region can do, amply demonstrating the virtues of blending these two varieties. Score: 95/100
