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.

Semillon for this amazing wine is sourced entirely from the Lovedale Vineyard, originally planted by legendary winemaker Maurice O'Shea in 1946. Fruit is harvested relatively early for a wine with relatively low alcohol and naturally high acidities. All grapes are hand picked and sent to the Mt Pleasant wineworks where they are destemmed and crushed, the musts are chilled and the juices are drained. After forty eight hours settling, the clear juices are racked off, warmed and inoculated with neutral yeast. Ferments are slow and kept at cool temperatures to retain flavour. Lovedale is bottled just three weeks after vinification and held back for several years of bottle ageing under the Mt Pleasant cellars. Alcohol 10.0%
Deep straw hues. Vibrant bouquet, complex and effusive with layers of citrus fruit, lemon curd, honey and hints of toast, notes of crushed quartz and wild herb. Long and complex palate exhibiting youthful vibrancy and aged complexity. Primary citrus fruits intertwine with mineral acidity and developing toasty aged influences. Flavour weight then increases across the length and breadth of the delicate, complex and finely structured palate.
