With generosity and value as trademarks, Langhorne Creek still punches above its perceived weight with quality fruit.
Heartland Wines, Directors’ Cut, Shiraz, Langhorne Creek, 2015
Deep purple in the glass with crimson rim. Sweet coconut oak wraps up ashen blackberry leaf and concentrated red berry aromas with hints of soft clove spice. Integration is well under way. 4 years in and the wine over-delivers a plush, silky mouthfeel which is full and generous. Figs, chocolate, red berries, black pepper and spice. The palate is focused and firm throughout while tannin still wraps it all up: earthy and fine. Delicious and balanced, just missing a some depth through the tail for x-factor. One for the full bodied lovers of shiraz, easy to get through a glass or two.
