Heartland Wines Directors’ Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Plunged three times a day over a 7 day cool fermentation. 14 months in new 75% new French oak. Strap in folks.

Heartland Wines, Directors’ Cut, Cabernet Sauvignon, Langhorne Creek, 2016

Carries a fragrant, perfumed floral (rose and jasmine) line that permeates through the black currant. Savoury, cleaner edges of graphite, black olive and heady incense smoke. Oak raises its voice but does so with a fine timbre. Fruit focused. Tight tannins. Persistence and freshness. A modern cabernet, well composed.

RRP: $33
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18.25/20
