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.

Mitchell Peppertree Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare Valley South Australia
Yes there really is an old pepper tree which grows on the Mitchell Watervale vineyard, a happy coincidence, as the nose and palate exhibits the exemplary varietal spice and pepper characters of super fine Shiraz. Vinfied from the fruit of vines up to fifty years of age or more, the amiable Peppertree is full flavoured and features a soft, almost velvety palate, harmoniously integrated and very easy to drink in its youth, with the quality and structure to mature gracefully while developing wonderful complexities.

Currently she sits on the Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and has recently finished a six year term with the Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board. Shiraz is picked at optimum ripeness and fermented on skins to extract maximum flavours and character. Exactingly vinified to an earthy Rhonesque styling, fruit, oak, acidity and tannins are present in the right proportions. Eighteen months maturation in small French oak barrels adds complexity to one of Clare Valley's most cherished wines.
Rich, deep red colour. Bouquet offers sweet spices of nutmeg and clove which combine with a touch of pepper, anise and cedar spice. Ripe Shiraz flavours, dark chocolate with hints of liquorice. The silky mouth coating tannins add a gentle firmness and elegant structure to the wine.
