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 distinctive pungency and zesty qualities of completely ripe Pinot Gris have captured the heart of Giesen. It is the light, refreshing fruit driven taste and engaging complexity of the finished Pinot Gris wine that inspires the team. Giesen work intensively in the vineyard to identify the harvest window for each site, that one or two days when fruit flavours are peaking. All sites must be closely monitored to determine the ideal time for harvest, based upon a criteria of flavour development and acid decrease as the grapes continue to ripen. Giesen aim for consistency of character and quality from vintage to vintage, as low yielding vines and slow ripening climes are what make the wines so special.

An effusive palate of citrus and kiwifruits, butternut and creamy biscuit characters. A delicate acid finish with hints of mineral and lingering tropical fruit. Excellent as an aperitif or accompaniement to Al Fresco.
