The label for the Heartland Wines range, from Limestone Coast and Langhorne Creek, is a graphic tribute to their multi-layered complexity, depicting all the spices and herbs that reviewers have found in the wines. This is where it all began for Australian wine – Heartland is based in Langhorne Creek, home to reputedly the oldest (pre-phylloxera) Cabernet Sauvignon vines on earth. And today’s Heartland wines display the opulence and fine texture that sets this region apart.
Heartland Sposa e Sposa celebrates the successful marriage of Italian grapes, Dolcetto and Lagrein, two northern Italian grape varieties that are ideally suited to Langhorne Creek climate. Lagrein’s heritage is the steep slopes of Alto Adige in the far north of Italy. Dolcetto hails originally from Piemonte, famous for great reds. Winemaker, Ben Glaetzer believed their union made them better together and continues to be the only winemaker to blend these two varietals. Sposa e Sposa translates from Italian as Spouse and Spouse and refers to this marriage of Dolcetto and Lagrein. A unique blend not made in Italy or anywhere else, this is just “A marriage made in Langhorne Creek.”
