Illicium Heartland

Origin

Named for the Illicium Verum [Latin for Star Anise] a spice note found by many tasters of Heartland and Langhorne Creek. Grant Tilbrook, Scott Collett and Ben Glaetzer form the backbone and foundation of Heartland Wines, in Langhorne Creek, 80km south east of Adelaide in South Australia. Grapes have been grown here since the 1850s. It is also home to the world’s oldest recorded Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, dating back to 1891.  These are cool climate vineyards, with winds from Antarctic and Southern ocean. The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are fermented separately from two distinct parcels chosen for their greater vineyard character. Twelve months in barrel offers a better balanced structure.

Style

Dark purple in colour with ruby hints. Up front blackberry and blackcurrant fruits are accompanied with notes of dark spice and pepper supported by a secondary note of dried herbs. A solid structured palate with a rich middle and a long finish.

Food Match

Great with barbecued lamb, roasted meats and vegetables.
