Heirloom Vineyards were born of love. A romance between an esteemed wine judge and his protege, consumated by a shared passion to preserve the integrity of venerable old vineyards. A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages. The fostered old vines have now been resurrected, yielding treasured harvests of the most sublime new world wine.

The Pike & Joyce vineyards are amongst the highest in Adelaide Hills at five hundred metres above sea level, giving the wines excellent natural acidity. The steep sloping terrain reduces the risk of frost. Vines are all hand pruned and handpicked, the fruit is chilled overnight in the Joyce cool rooms, before being transported to Pike's Clare Valley winery for vinification. Traditional old world techniques and modern Australian winemaking are incorporated to produce a style which reflects the variety and region. The fruit is lightly crushed and destemmed prior to pressing and fermentation. A brisk bottling upon completion captures and preserves the lovely Pinot Gris fruit character and Adelaide Hills charm.
Medium to pale green hue. Subtle notes of yellow peach and nectarine, nashi pear and nutmeg along with a little of the river stone minerality for of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris. Medium bodied palate showing the flavours of stone fruits over a gentle creaminess which contributes texture and length. Well balanced acidity maneuvers the wine away from finishing heavy or cloying.
