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 established vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The sheltered aspect and cold Autumn nights, courtesy of these higher altitude sites, combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.

Winemaking: 

Fruit is harvest during the early morning hours to retain freshness before a fast and precise vinification in stainless steel with minimal oxygen contact to maximisefruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before maturation on lees for four months to build depth and texture with malolactic fermentation prevented.

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: 

Very fresh and aromatic with delicate aromas of citrus and stone fruits overlaid by notes of freshly mown grass. A burst of citrus and tropical fruits is matched by thrilling mineral acidity softened by a generous mouthfeel. A classically restrained interpretation of Sauvignon Blanc that is very much in keeping with the Adelaide Hills style.
