There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
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.

Chardonnay is sourced from good growers who are fastidious about their canopy management, a practice that's necessary to produce high quality harvests from the rich and fertile volcanic soils. Moderate crop levels encourage grapes to ripen early and evenly, retaining fresh natural acidity. Harvested early in the vintage, grapes are gently handled and treated to a long, cool vinification for retention of flavour and to keep phenolics at bay, the majority in fermenters without any malolactic. Some components are filled to oak for a course of ferments in seasoned French barriques.
Pale straw with bright green hues. Fresh aromas of lemon and lime zest, ripe peach notes are overlaid by nougat and spice. The palate is generously layered with flavours of green tropical fruits and lime curd, creamily textured with just a hint of French oak, balanced by a refreshing citrus acidity at the finish.
