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...

Beautiful bright straw green hue. Intense nose develops into ripe bouquets of loquat and white nectarine, gingerbread and floral, nutty fruit notes and pastoral charm. A soft palate exhibiting a balance of evolved fruit characters and lovely freshness, almonds, honey and tinned pear, before a clean acid finish on lingering notes of apple and orange blossoms. Match with fondue and elegantly presented white meat recipes.
