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»

There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally.. Venerable vintages from the most precious parcels»

The Jester comes from the Willunga district at the southern end of McLaren Vale. Heavy grey loam soils over sandstone, intermixed by black Biscay clay, combine with a maritime climate, contributing to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins. Shiraz grapes show excellent quality. Vines are husbanded to yield around four tonnes to the acre. Grapes are immediately crushed and fermented on skins at cooler temperatures to capture and enhance the bright, pure berry fruit. Components are pressed and treated to partial barrel ferments followed by a natural malolactic, matured eighteen months in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels.
Opaque dark crimson, deep dark hues. Dark chocolate, anise and all spice dominate the nose, fragrances of bright, vibrant, rich fruit. A revelation of blue and black berries, mocha and a hint of spice on the bouquet. Flavours of plum and liquorice with hints of blackberry and espresso. Exceptional balance, refinement and generousity of flavour, the palate exhibits focused, genuine fruit and subtle, yet structured, tannins in support of an elongated, velvety finish.
