Just as the spice traders of old, Heartland invests time, effort and risk all in search of those exotic flavors. Wine should be an adventure. Spice Trader is 58% Shiraz and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are fermented separately with specific parcels included for their ability to offer greater complexity and character. Time in barrel permits a softening of the wine's structure. It also offers a complex expression of the fruit and helps the exotic notes to be revealed.
This is a very dark glass of juicy and delicious red. A burst of intense primary fruit greets the palate with blueberries, blackberries and currants. These powerful fruit notes can engulf the uninitiated, but waves of spice can be discovered by seasoned flavor explorers.
