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.

At Kumeu River, the winemakers are particularly careful in selecting only the very best grapes for their wines. Yields are kept low to improve the concentration of aromas and flavours, faulty berries are removed in the field. The exclusively hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed and treated to an indigenous yeast vinification. Some or all of the wine may be fermented in French oak barriques, the balance may be fashioned to enhance varietal freshness. Upon completion of ferments and a course of full malolactic, components are assembled into the finished wine, aimed at accentuating the ripe peach and melon characters of Chardonnay.
Pale yellow colour. Very attractive lifted fruit aromas, along with a touch of nuttiness, the hint of hazelnut that's so very Chardonnay. Characters of grapefruit and lemons, cashews, leesy with a dollop of cream. The palate also shows a nice peachy ripeness along with a crisp flinty character that gives the wine a refreshing cleansing quality. Perfect alongside fishes and crustacea.
