The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»
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.

The Mitolo McLaren vineyards are situated in the most southern tip of the McLaren Vale region at Willunga, overlooking the coast. The vineyard soil types are heavy grey loam over sandstone soils, with black cracking Biscay clays intermixed. These soils have excellent water-holding capacity and require minimal irrigation. Being so close to the coast it experiences slightly warmer days in summer than the Vales giving incredible fruit intensity and excellent tannin ripeness. It also has the advantage of cool afternoon breezes and nights which helps to maintain

The Mitolo Greenock vineyard lies approximately 15km to the North-West of the geographical heart of the Barossa Valley. The altitude of Greenock varies markedly with the undulating hills, the Mitolo vineyards sitting at approximately 440 metres ASL. The vineyard rows have a North/South orientation meaning the canopy captures maximum sunlight throughout the day and is cooled by the southerly valley winds during the afternoon. This orientation also reduces the risk of canopy damage during days of intense heat and hot northerly winds. Average daily maximum temperature during summer is 25 degrees with a cool 12 degrees average night temperature. The vineyard is supplementary drip irrigated as the light sandy soil has exceptionally poor water holding capacity, on average the vines receive only one period of non-rainfall irrigation per season.
