Heirloom Vineyards Adelaide Hills Tempranillo 2016
A "very good" (Halliday) Tempranillo from the "exceptionally gifted" Elena Brooks
You see more Aussie Tempranillo today than ever before, but pure examples of this quality are still rare. In 2012, Halliday rated Heirloom one of his Best New Wineries and just four years later, awarded it Five Red Stars, calling winemaker Elena Brooks “exceptionally gifted.” Her high scoring wines are regularly festooned with Trophy and Golds from show judges around the world. “It’s a big wine for a tempranillo. Big on cola and herbs, raspberry and smoky/cedary oak. It fills the mouth to all corners; one sip and you know that you’re in aspirational territory. Tannin places a firm hand on the reins but remains inconspicuous about it. Very good ... 94 points” (Halliday).
