Tasting notes for Heartland Stickleback Red 2009
Sight: Quite deep and intense. Big tears, crimson.
Nose: Black fruit, black olive, soy character - cola bottles?
Palate: Full fruit, burst of peppery spice, nice acidity but not too much. Underlying tannins support nice fruit.
My favourite vintage to date. Seriously punching above its weight.

We served this wine at our wedding also. We loved it ourselves and had nothing but positive feedback from everyone on it. It really is exceptional value for money and is really drinkable.
