Bright purple lively and alive; a youthful blush. Aromatics of white chocolate – just made from non deodorized cocoa butter. White pepper, nutmeg and bay leaf; then slides in gently the bouquet of cinnamon and mace. All of which is enveloped by primary fruit aromas of blueberry, raspberry and plum.

A silky texture from front to mid palate, at which point the keen acidity takes over. This red now becomes a very structured and well-delineated wine that moves in gradual, seamless stages. There’s diving bell like depth of fruit from the mid to back palate where grainy tannins debate politely with clear acidity.

Description

“All wines come in at the mouth, and all love comes in at the eye; that’s all we shall know for truth before we grow old and die.”
WB Yeats

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 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. That is this wine.
