The Heartland Directors Cut Shiraz 2019 vintage is an opaque mulberry core softens to a thin crimson rim in appearance. Aromas of blackberry jam with spice similar to a Turkish spice bazaar. The palate offers purple fruit with hints of refreshing rosewater and rich aniseed. The finish is long and refreshing.

"Excellent hue and depth, an early harbinger of a very good vintage, the bouquet and palate living up to the promise. It is a broad-shouldered, luscious and rich wine, borrowing some dark chocolate from McLaren Vale, adding licorice and plum fruit flavours."
95 Points - James Halliday, Halliday's Wine Companion, August 2022

Winery & Vintage Info

Except for the January 24 heat spike that affected every growing region, Langhorne Creek stayed reasonably cool with average temperatures nearly 10 degrees below Barossa and McLaren Vale. Despite all the usual fears it was a trouble-free and high-quality harvest. This why the quality and consistency of Langhorne Creek is gaining acknowledgement around the world.

The grapes for the 2019 vintage Directors' Cut Shiraz is selected from some of the best Shiraz vineyards in the region. These vineyards are chosen for the consistent intensity and texture of the fruit. The strictest pruning techniques are used. The fruit for Directors’ Cut Shiraz was harvested at night and then crushed to small open top stainless-steel fermenters. After 24 hours of skin contact fermentation was commenced with our Rhône isolate yeast. Following 10 days of cool fermentation on skins and pumped over 3 times daily, the wine was transferred to French and American oak hogsheads for 12-14 months maturation. In the 2019 vintage we have limited ourselves to 40% new oak to ensure the fruit remained the focus.
