Made from fruit out of McLaren Vale and Big Rivers, this offering from Bleeding Hearts shows lots of dark berries and cherries on the nose, along with some toasty oak and hints of chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and slips down easy with juicy, cordial-like fruit flavours, gentle tannins, a smattering of pepper spice, and a soft, slinky finish. It's a decent quaffer for keeping around the house for those unexpected drop-in visits.
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.
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.
