Summary: 

Bleeding Heart Wine was born from a shared passion in the wines and vineyards of South Australia. The ancient soils and moderate climate create rich and full bodied wines that are incredibly satisfying. Few that experience the lifestyle of food and wine or the beautiful landscape could argue that it is not better a bleeding heart than none at all.

Vineyards: 

Sourced from a combination of established, dry-grown vineyards in central South Australia and low-yielding McLaren Vale vineyards.  Wines are made and matured by Jim Zerella in McLaren Vale.

Winemaking: 

Fruit is chilled before de-stemming and a cold soak for three days. Each parcel is fermented separately with the McLaren Vale Shiraz fermented in small open two tonne vessels before maturation in two to four year old oak barrels for six months. The Big Rivers component is fermented and matured in stainless steel before blending. 

2013 Vintage: 

A very dry and low yielding vintage that created a small crop of intensely flavoured fruit. After an unsettled flowering, summer came early but delivered few truly hot spikes before a cooler than average January. Warm and dry conditions returned in February before much needed March rains revitalised the vineyards leading in to A relatively trouble free harvest.

Tasting Note: 

A bright and inviting nose highlighting varietal blackberry and currant aromas, a hint of bramble and savour oak. Typical of McLaren Vale’s opulent take on Cabernet, the palate is full of dark berries and ripe plums before an impressively long finish given definition by fine tannins. An excellent combination of easy going approachability and Cabernet Sauvignon definition and structure.
