Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz 2014

Langhorne Creek, South Australia, AustraliaThe Directors’ Cut has always been a big wine and a window into the style and power of Langhorne Creek shiraz. The nose is rich and hedonistic with aromatic, meaty, black fruit. The palate is full of black licorice, black and blue fruits with a spicy, warm underbelly and a dusting of menthol. Tannins are dense but sweet. I suggest grilled lamb to tackle this wine now, or you can cellar it for three to six years. A blockbuster style made for a specific audience.Tasted: 14 June 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 private wine shops AB 34.99 private wine shops MB 45.99 Banville & Jones Wine Co.
