Heartland Wines is a joint venture from industry veterans and lifelong mates Ben Glaetzer (of Glaetzer Wines fame) and Nick Keukenmeester in Langhorne Creek, South Australia. From its inception in 1999, Heartland's ethos has been to create wines of balance, texture and a distinctive Australian identity, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Heartland's wines are made at Ben Glaetzer's Barossa Vintners winery in Tanunda, Barossa. Here Ben Glaetzer takes his characteristic minimum-intervention approach, with gentle handling and long, cool fermentations to guarantee freshness, elegance and drinkability in the wines.

The Foreign Correspondent is a blend of light Italian grape varieties Dolcetto (95%) and Lagrein (5%). The Dolcetto and Lagrein were picked early for maximum freshness. The two were then fermented for 24 hours at very low temperature before being taken off skins for a remarkable lightness of colour and tannin. No oak was used for this wine which was left in stainless steel for six months, again to keep the delicate freshness of fruit in the wine.

The wine is bright, elegant and refreshing, perfect to serve slightly chilled. The vibrant fruit character shines through with red berries zipping around the mouth. They are enhanced by a sprinkling of herbs and spices.
