Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer District Shiraz 2006
Sold Out
Tasting Notes
Ebenezer is located in the Northern most reaches of the Barossa and wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice. The palate is full of red fruits, leather, cedar and complex spice. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.
Winemaking
The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C.
Further maturation in a mixture of French and American Oak for 15 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.

Ebenezer is located in the Northern most reaches of the Barossa and wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice. The palate is full of red fruit, leather, cedar and complex spice. I find this a very elegant wine. Although full-bodied it promises much on the nose and delivers an integrated, textured experience on the palate. I love this wine with cold cuts, cheese, olive oil and good, crunchy bread (no, it’s not Italian in style at all, but works beautiful with a peasant’s morning tea).
'They're top notch wines'...
Review by: Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury
Three Shiraz vintages, three different Barossa vineyard profiles (Greenock, Ebenezer and the Lyndoch), three very different wines and all released at the same time. Crafted by Tim Smith they’re top-notch wines that offer an opportunity to explore different Barossa Styles. Highly recommended. Drink with : Kangaroo fillet.

Lots of dark chocolate tinged with spice on the nose; excellent length, good finish and the favourite of the three. 93 points

Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer District 2006Medium- to full-bodied; fragrant aromas of black fruits and spice plus obvious vanilla oak; finetannins on a notably long and fine finish; a little less oak would have made a better wine.Cork. 15%RATING 90 DRINK 2014
