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 wine. Recipients of prestigious Platinum Award & Best Shiraz Trophy Sommelier International, Double Gold China Wine & Spirit, Gold USA and San Francisco International, Adelaide Hills Chardonnay of Year and Best Barossa Wine of Show, the fruit of prodigal sites has been rejuvenated, to a measure of merit that's cherished throughout the world of inestimable, old vineyard wines...

After each harvest, a search begins for the best grapes from which to make the next vintage. The selection process is diligent and strict. Parcels of fruit which can display the high standards required for inclusion, selected on the basis of vibrant flavour profiles and exemplary varietal expression, become the foundation for Taylor Ferguson. Each vintage brings submissions, this year provided the team with parcels of outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from good vineyards in the Barossa. Batches are sorted, crushed and inoculated before being treated to a regimen of modern and traditional vinification techniques in a mix of fermenters, followed by a spell of maturation under finely coopered oaks.

A generous palate, full of berry flavours, mint and dark chocolate complexity rounded out by fine tannins, leading onto a lingering, well balanced finish. To accompany rare venison or rosemary lamb.
