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...

The vines at Tenuta di Biserno are grown to some very special soils, complex silts, alluvial sands, a high percentage of clay and a conglomerate rich in minerals, recognizable upon tasting the wines. As with the established practices of neighboring Bolgheri DOC, Bordeaux varietals were planted with a view to exploiting the unique soils which are very akin to those found in the Medoc. Fruit is vinified for three to four weeks at 28C, followed by a course of malolactic in a combination of barrels and tank. The wines are matured twelve months in a selection of prior use French oak barriques and vats, assembled, bottled and aged for another six months before release.
Intense, bright ruby red. Ripe, soft fruit aromatics, spicy notes, eucalyptus and Mediterranean maquis. A fruit filled palate, ripe acids and supple oak are supported by fine, ripe tannins before a long, elegant finish. The relatively high percentage of Petit Verdot has surprised many wine professionals for it's contribution to the overall structure and balance.
