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.

Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention.

A wine of pure Barossa fruit by a master who loves Cabernet Shiraz and is devoted to his valley home. Vines are encouraged to allow maximum development of varietal characters and concentration of flavour. Fruit is picked at complete ripeness from Burge’s own estate vineyards and those of distinguished Barossa growers. Grapes are crushed, de-stemmed and fermented over the course of a week, pumped over daily for optimal extractions. Free runs and pressing are racked and returned for deep colour and sound structure, followed by a term of age in a selection of the finest seasoned oak barrels.
Dark red in colour, vibrant purple hue. A rich, ripe style packing a big punch on the aroma, complex fusion of ripe plum and cassis, spiced cherry fruit characters, vanillin oak, subtle milk chocolate sweetness, leather and cedar notes. The palate is luscious, full bodied fruit flavours fill the middle, with hints of licorice, plum and subtle vanilla cream. Finishes to fine, silky tannins and a lingering fruit driven finish.
