Heartland Dolcetto & Lagrein 2009
Heartland Dolcetto & Lagrein is a blend of two indigenous northern Italian varieties that are ideally suited to the South Australian climate - particularly Langhorne Creek. The beautiful, lifted aromatics of Dolcetto are combined with the tannin structure and intensity of Lagrein. The result is an intensely perfumed wine with a concentrated, supple palate. Deep, glass-coating ruby in colour. Blackberries and wild herbs with smoked meats and spice on the nose. In the mouth, earthy flavours and fresh acidity from the Lagrein mingle with sweet, red cherry and spice of the Dolcetto. A dry red with a spicy, savoury character: perfect for enjoying with Italian food - a bowl of fresh pasta or a crispy wood oven pizza.
