- OLD VINE EDEN VALLEY SHIRAZ
Opaque purple hue. Lifted sweet Shiraz berry characters on the nose with interesting notes of vanilla and blackberries. The palate is svelte, medium weight and very complex and shows all the hall-marks of great Shiraz treated with good oak maturation to produce a great wine with good aging potential. It shows ample aroma, fruit balanced with perfect acidity and assuring dry tannins for aging potential. The finish is long and generous, leaving spicy berry flavours lingering on the palate.
97 Points James Halliday Wine Companion
The voice of the Eden Valley sings loud and clear with the very different scales of this wine compared to its Barossa sibling released at the same time. There is a burst of juicy plum and cherry as the wine is tasted, with a dark chocolate note as well, the tannins old money', as they say. Vines planted in the early 1900s are ultimately the key to this wine.
A superb vintage of generally mild temperatures after a hot November. Generally fine through harvest with some showers in mid March. Rich wines were made from Shiraz and the Old Vines performed reliably, showing real class in the wines made.
