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.

Peter Lehmann HV Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Eden Valley South Australia
Pinot Gris has found the perfect idyll within the cool climes and elevated aspects of Valley Eden. The long slow ripening produces an exceptionally well balanced style of Pinot Gris with heightened acidity and brisk natural fruit characters. An aromatic, textural white wine that's so highly engaging, while serving as a contemporary Australian take on the established French style. H&V's mouthfilling and complex, layered palate makes it a cinch with food and a fine match to all cosmopolitan faire.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$263.00
Parcels of Pinot Gris grown to a splendid site, high up the Eden Valley, atop bony, rocky soils, are picked a little later in the season to make a more textural style of wine. Following harvest, grapes are crushed and the juices drained immediately away to ensure a finished wine of delicacy and softness. A small portion is inoculated in French oak hogsheads to create a Pinot Gris of characteristic barrel ferment richness, the balance is treated to vinification in chilled fermenters to retain the urgency of Eden Valley fruit. After a few weeks on sedimentery yeast lees, components are assembled, stabilized and bottled early to preserve freshness. Alcohol 13.0%
Delicate colour with a green tinge. Bouquet of freshly cut pear, blossoms and pine nut, nashi and quince. The palate is rich and soft, offering lemon zest stonefruit flavours, hazelnut and vegetable, textural with a mineral crunch, before a pleasingly dry finish. Drinking beautifully now, serve lightly chilled alongside pan fried salmon or prawns, roast pork or chicken mushroom pie.
