Heirloom Vineyards McLaren Vale Shiraz 2018
Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $40.00
Low yields, very careful fruit selection, hands on winemaking with whole bunches and open fermentation and the use of high quality French and Bulgarian oak have conspired again to produce a stunningly intense McLaren Vale Shiraz. It offers blackberries and cedary oak, great length and deeply intense silken black and blue fruits, anise and chocolate all settling nicely into a really satisfying drink. Super intense, chewy and rich but not overblown. Awesome now and should cellar beautifully. Remarkable value for money.

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.
