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.

Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Pertaringa are fortuitously positioned at the foothills of Mount Lofty Ranges, the perfect location for grapes, by virtue of a temperate environment and deep clay loam soils. Undercover is a reference to the McLaren Vale tradition in supplying other regions with bespoke parcels of fruit, ultimately to be vinified into some of Australia's most favourite wines. Undercover is an old vine Shiraz, selected from Pertaringa's five decade old vineyard, hand crafted by winemaking supremos Geoff Hardy and Ben Riggs. Undercover is the essence of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Pertaringa is surrounded by magnificent stands of native gum trees. All vines are pruned to control vigor and crop levels using a combination of regimens. In the summer the vines are topped and trimmed cutting the shoot tips off to encourage lateral growth and make the vines easier to access. Ironically, Pertaringa's Shiraz was initially sold off to Hardy Wines, proprietor Geoff Hardy's family company, to make port and to exchange for other wines as payment. Today Pertaringa's old Shiraz vines make the finest full bodied reds of the region and are highly sought by leading companies for their flagship wines. The most superior parcels of estate fruit are set aside for the Pertaringa label.
Deep plum ruby colour. Exuberant fragrances, aromas of dark cherries and blackberry. A complex array of lifted fruit flavours, an inky concentration, the palate delivers waves of vibrant satsuma plum, black cherries and beetroot that interplay with freshly laid asphalt and earth. In archetypal McLaren Vale style, silky, lively mouthfeel, framed by savoury elements. Fine grain French oak tannins keep the wine on course to deliver a persistent finish.
