Terroirs of the Barossa Eden Valley Shiraz 2019
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

Deep crimson. Intense boysenberry, blackberry, mulberry aromas with espresso, roasted walnut notes. Well concentrated choco-berry fruits, plentiful fine lacy chalky/ al dente textures, underlying roasted chestnut, cola notes, attractive mid palate volume and integrated fresh acidity. Finishes claret-firm with persistent red liquorice, aniseed notes. Drinking well. Under cork. Drink now – 2026+

Dark, dense, concentrated purple/black colour with a powerful, super-ripe, jammy bouquet of crushed raspberry, mulberry and balsamic herbs. Dried sage and oregano. Very regional in style. Concentrated flavour, masses of mouth-coating tannins and a gripping farewell that last and lasts. A trace of bitterness in the tannins. A monster wine of power and persistence that begs to be cellared. And it's very Eden Valley—albeit in a big-boy style. 2023–2034
