This is one of Heirloom Vineyards' top Pinots, produced from their best fruit, and aptly named 'The Velvet Fog.' It's lifted and bright showing dark cherry notes, along with floral top notes, and savoury, stalky, undergrowth characters. The palate is juicy and vibrant, with a tangy acidity balancing the generous fruit. Velvet fog indeed...

Expert Reviews

91 Points - James SucklingThis has a very fresh, juicy delivery of ripe red cherries and some sappy complexity threaded in. The palate has a crisp, savory edge to the tannin and bright flavors of red cherries. Drink now. Screw cap.
91 Points - Steven Creber - Halliday's Wine CompanionShows quite attractive varietal characters of cherry and plum on the bouquet and palate, but never quite moves through the gears. There's nothing really to criticise here, it's a good wine, but at this price there are many pinot options which provide more to spark your interest and hold your attention.

How's it taste?

Fresh, clean and long berry flavours leap to the fore, then savoury flavours of briar and rhubarb dry out the middle palate; tannins wade in gently before a back palate reveals a core of keen red fruits. The after taste lingers long and ripe red berries set sail into the distance.

How was it made?

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. That is this wine. This Heirloom Vineyards Pinot Noir was produced from our best Adelaide Hills Vineyard whose clones and viticulture embody the very best in cutting edge but old school viticulture and winemaking. Hand tended vines, sorted bunch by bunch, naturally open fermented, basket-pressed and stored in well seasoned first use French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.
