Terroirs of the Barossa ‘Eden Valley’ Shiraz 2020

$60.00 / bottle

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

Erin Larkin, The Wine Advocate

The 2020 Terroirs of the Barossa Eden Valley Shiraz leads with a sweet,juicy, dripping, nose populated by dark berry fruits and an exotic splay ofspice. In the mouth, the wine is full throttle, concentrated and almostdrying its the severity of savory tannin that streaks across the tongue. It'sa big wine, from a hot year. 14.9% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.
