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.

The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine.

A structured yet poised and sophisticated Shiraz endowed with flavour and complexity, the synergy between Heathcote and Shiraz. A dry and mild climate combines with ancient red soils to produce an effort of telling regionality. Five separate blocks are handled as fourteen individual parcels. A combination of destemmed grapes and whole bunches are vinified in a mix of open and closed fermenters. Upon completion, batches are pressed and transferred immediately to barrel for malolactic, followed by three rackings over a term of seventeen months ageing in a selection of French oak barriques. Half the barrels are culled over time, only the very best are included into the final wine.
Dark dense red. Powerful nose of blackberry and raspberry with nuances of cedar, chocolates and spice. Flavours are a subtle combination of dark berry fruits integrated with complex oak and mixed spice. The wine features soft supple tannins, seamless integration of oak and acid with a long rich lingering finish.
