Strong crimson-purple; an exceptionally well-made medium-bodied wine, with spice and liquorice black fruit aromas that flow into the textured and complex flavoured palate, where red fruits also make an appearance with quality oak and ripe tannins in support.

Named one of the ‘Best New Wineries’ by James Halliday, the wines of Heirloom are impressive, with it’s Eden Valley Shiraz a stunning example.
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.
