Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»

Crafted from the vineyard through to the finished product with all the superior winemaking skill which Lake Breeze applies to its finest offerings. Grapes are selected and picked at optimum ripeness from good vineyards sited around the famous flood plains of Langhorne Creek. The well drained soils receive a deposition of silt during the annual floods, which ensures that the fertility remains at a high level. Maceration of the grapes whilst on skins has imparted to the Bullant an excellent array of varietal flavours, deep colours and silky textures. A ripe, full bodied Shiraz which has evolved over the course of fifteen months, whilst undergoing maturation under a selection of the finest oak.
Deep dark red in colour. Bouquet of ripe sweet plums, allsorts and liquorice with a touch of earthiness and the complexity of spice, freshly ground pepper, blackcurrants and cocoa with savoury meaty characters. Bullant is fully ripe yet youthful with a wonderful intensity and length of flavour. The palate is rich with black fruits leading to a long soft finish. Drinking well now alongside steak or gourmet snags.
