Terroirs of the Barossa ‘Eden Valley’ Shiraz 2020

$60.00 / bottle

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.

Ageing 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

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.

Spicy dark berries and fresh leather aromas adorn the nose, luring you in. Flashes of roses appear, the palate is velvety rich and spicy. There's a lovely buoyancy to this full-bodied shiraz. It finishes with lightness and elegance. This is delicious and offers a lot - although with time in the cellar it will offer more. Gabrielle Poy

Halliday Wine Companion

Shiraz sourced from the cool climes of the Eden Valley; aged in oak for 18 months. Blackberry, boysenberry and dark plum characters are supported by an array of fine spice, licorice, charcuterie and dark chocolate with lighter notes of sage and wild herbs. Tight, fine tannin provides support and bright acidity the pulse. The wine lingers persistently, showing lovely fruit purity and grace. Dave Brooks

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.
