From fruit sourced off Heirloom’s neighbours near the Salopian Inn. Part of Heirloom’s “regional” series, seeking to showcase the hero from each region. From Elena Brooks and her husband Zar, and winemaker Rosie Signer. Heirloom have just rolled to the 2019, but there should be a bit of this still floating about.
Heirloom Vineyards, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2018
Attractive McLaren Vale signature red fruits and choco nut hints. A little bit of roast coconut, a touch of meaty depth and some earthy tar. Dark raspberries and juicy lift, full bodied and a little polish with some dark chary oak influence and sandy tannins.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
