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»

Mitchelton Print Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Heathcote Goulburn Victoria
A flagship Victoran effort, traditionally crafted from Shiraz grapes picked off the oldest and most superior blocks within the Mitchelton estate vineyard.

These veteran vines are naturally devigorated and unirrigated, meticulosuly managed by hand, ensuring precious yields of small, intensely flavoured berries which are reserved for the creation of this eminent edition of Victorian Shiraz.

Predominantly from the Old Faithful Crescent and D Blocks, a third of fruit is picked off an elite block at Heathcote, contributing structure and complexity. Grapes are treated to an extended skin contact for up to three weeks, extracting deep colour and soft tannins. A temperatuture controlled, submerged cap vinification in potters and small open fermenters is followed by transfer to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels from select cooperages, for completion of malolactic and eighteen months maturation. Parcels remain on lees and remained unracked to preserve freshness, individually barrel selected in blind tastings before determining the final assemblage.
Intense deep purple, violet hues. Rich aromas of brandied cherry, smoked charcuterie and festive pudding, a nose that continually shifts in and out of red currant/ mulberry reduction sauce, mocha, cocoa and kirsch. A finely boned wine which balances the power of fruit with a delicacy of structure. Rich, opulent fruit marries with cinnamon/ nutmeg/ aniseed spice, all framed by a structure of chocolatey textured tannins which partner the persistence of flavour perfectly.
