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.. Serenading sleeping vineyards to life»

Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest.

Shiraz is harvested in stages over the course of a fortnight, providing varying levels of sweetness and complexity for the finished wine. Grapes are vinified in open top fermenters and treated to a regimen of pumpovers twice daily. Several days after harvest, a portion of the free run juices are drained and fortified to arrest ferments and retain some natural sweetness. A combination of estate made brandy spirits, up to twenty years of age, are called upon to fortify the wine, achieving added complexity. Components are matured in well seasoned oak hogsheads for eighteen months, whereupon only the very best barrels are selected to be included in the final assemblage and bottling of this extra fine liqueur Shiraz.
Deep purple black colour. Enticing aromas of xmas cake and dark spiced berries, chocolates, perfume, marzipan and plum. These superb pure fruit flavours continue on the palate, luscious and rich, full bodied and intense. Essences of rancio and sweet tobacco leaf, marmalade and dried apricot, harmonious with moderate sweetness, balanced alcohol and velvety mouthfeel, a lingering finish completes a remarkable wine.
