Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer District Shiraz 2007
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 fine, talc like tannins.

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 18 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.

Reviews
Delicate and textured wine...
Review by: Kerry Skinner
Hand picked and basket pressed. Delicate and textured wine from vines that are more than eight decades old. Aromatic spices and red fruit on the nose flow through to the palate, cedary oak characters and supple tannins. Drink it with char-grilled steak.
