TASTING NOTES

The wine reflects the slate and granite soils with strong mineral notes, and fruit flavours of blackberry, Morello cherry. Complex deeper notes of earth and cured meats bring the palate to a long and evenly weighted finish.

WINEMAKING

To ensure the unique character of this sub-region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine.

Aging in the finest quality new and seasoned French (70%) and American oak barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin

Terroir: The combined effects of site soil and climate on the vine. The  Barossa has some very distinct sub-regions which exhibit their own unique influence on the wine. A journey through the Terroirs is a lesson in the Barossa’s versatility. We have chosen Eden Valley to highlight its rich, darker flavours unique to this high altitude,  cooler climate and rocky, clay loam soils.

 Soil: red-grey loams with slate and granite

 Altitude: 400m

Review by: Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Very deep, intense, dark red/purple colour with a black fruit, black olive aroma, with a trace of machine oil. The wine is full-bodied and rich, dense and solidly concentrated, with abundant powdery, drying tannins and good persistence. A very successful Eden Valley shiraz. Drinking Well: 2020–2035

Review by: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Strikingly beautiful, the wine shows perfumed aromas of dark plum, mulberry, thyme, clove and roasted hazelnut on the nose, leading to a beautifully refined palate that’s silky and flowing. The wine offers splendid sophistication and harmony. At its best: now to 2038.
