This Heirloom Vineyards McLaren Vale Shiraz was by acclaimed young Brooks winemaker Elena Brooks in our McLaren Vale Cellars from a single site.
Sourced from our neighbours the McMurtie Family’s extraordinary and low yielding old vines, just adjacent to the Salopian Inn, where Ross McMurtrie, Vigneron was born.
Hand tended vines, sorted bunch by bunch, naturally open fermented, with regular hand plunging and gentle pumping over to extract colour, flavour and tannin.
Aged in some new but mainly 3 and 4 year one-year old French and Bulgarian oak barriques for 16 months.
The alcohol is only 14.5% with a pH of 3.44 a TA 6.57 g/L. Residual Sugar of less than 3g/L so this is a bone dry.
