96 Points - Tyson Stelzer | RRP $40
Heirloom is the venture of experienced duo Zar and Elena Brooks; who have previously founded Dandelion Vineyards and Zonte's Footsteps. With an aim of preserving the unique old vineyards of South Australia, championing the best clones of each variety and embracing organic and biodynamic practices, the wines from Heirloom consistently impress.
The 2019 Heirloom McLaren Vale Shiraz follows in the footsteps of the hugely popular recent vintages of this wine; delivering an intensely flavoured yet poised red wine. Packed with plenty of blackberry, dark chocolate and blue fruit flavours, this still maintains poise, balance and approachability. A McLaren Vale Shiraz that will offer plenty of appeal over the next decade, this offers remarkable value drinking at this discounted price (RRP $40).
"96 Points. Wild fermented; matured 16 months in mostly seasoned American and French oak barrels. Dashing, slick and transfixing. Inky blackberry, black cherry and satsuma plum fruit delivering density with impressive definition, lifted by violet perfume and set to a grand foundation of fresh licorice. Elena Brooks' signature fine-ground tannins carry a long finish. Screw cap. 14.5% alc. To 2034. $40"- Tyson Stelzer, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
"95 Points. Deep, dark and inky in the glass. Dark-fruited aromas, mulberry, blackberry, spice, brambles, graphite and a whiff of licorice, plenty of complexity here. Rich, dark and layered on the palate, plenty of plummy, fleshy fruit, firm, structured tannins and textured mouth-feel. A very balanced wine built for the long-haul. Date Tasted: August 2021. Drink: 2021 to 2036. $40.00. 14.5% alc."- Aaron Brasher, The Real Review.
