Heirloom Vineyards Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

This is top end Coonawarra Cab done right. A grade vines are hand tended, the fruit bunch sorted, open fermented, basket pressed and put into superb French oak for a couple of years. Red fruits, mulberries, bramble, olives, dried herbs are all in the mix. The palate is extremely powerful, mouthfillingly textured, intense and long. An exceptional, single vineyard Coonawarra Cab.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

Heirloom Vineyards was conceived in vintage 2000, when a young winemaking student caught the eye of a silly old wine judge. A love story ensued inspired by two vows: To preserve the best of tradition, the old world of wine and our unique old vineyards and to champion the best clones of each variety planted in the most appropriate sites embracing the principals of organic and biodynamic farming. Seven long vintages of trial and error passed before Heirloom Vineyards could make a wine that was fine enough to pass on to future generations.

Serious Cabernet with great intensity and perfect pitch

Heirloom Vineyards Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 – This red reminded me of the Wynns black label from the same year, which is high praise. Serious depth of dark berry fruit, seamless oak integration, layers of flavour, medium to full-bodied, great texture and fine tannins. Serious Cabernet with great intensity and perfect pitch. 96 points. BUY.
