Vineyard: All the vineyards in the Four Corners range are assessed separately to ensure each parcel of fruit delivers its best individual expression of the Eden Valley region. The hero of this blend is the Shiraz grapes.
Season: The 2015 vintage will be one to remember. The season started well with above average early winter rains that filled the soil profile and dams, however it was dry from then on. Temperatures were above average in spring allowing the vines to get off to a strong growing season. Summer was generally mild with the exception of a few days of extreme relieved by thirty millimetres of rain in January.
Wine making: All the vineyards in the Four Corners range are assessed separately to ensure each parcel of fruit delivers its best individual expression of the Eden Valley region. Wine grapes are picked and fermented separately before transferring to seasoned oak barrels and matured. The final blend delivers the Poonawatta signature Four Corner Blend.

Exceptional Value - 100% Barossa Red Wine
Rarely do we put together such exceptional value wine packs, but when we do it is a little bit of fun. For a limited time we offer this six pack selection from single vineyards of Barossa’s high country – Eden Valley.
Synonymous with reputation and rich in red colour, featuring deep fruity flavours with a medium palate weight.
Six Pack Includes;
Taste Eden Valley Regional Wine Room houses small artisan wine brands without cellar doors. Thank you for selecting these wines!
A superb collection of six award winning single estate wines. Hand crafted in Barossa’s beautiful high country – Eden Valley. These six wines can be decanted and enjoyed within hours with the option to cellar.
Six Pack Includes;
1) Eden Hall Wines 2015 Block 4 Shiraz
Selected from a premium parcel of Shiraz fruit to showcase the best of the Eden Hall site. The vineyard rows are established north to south to maximise quality under the management of Viticulturist Dan Falkenberg (Barossa’s 2019 Viticulturist of the year). The vineyard site rests over fractured rock and sandy loam on a deep clay base.
The wine displays refined silky tannins with rich dark red berry fruits, notes of liquorice, chocolate and spiced pepper.
2) Chaffey Bros Wine Co. 2015 Elijah Shiraz
Located in the northern end of the Barossa, is the Elijah Shiraz vineyard. Noted as the top end of town in red wine production, these Shiraz grapes grow in heavy clay soil with no irrigation and survive on low annual rainfall.
The wine is majestic! Striking blue fruits with a silky foundation of dark chocolate notes, Chinese five spice, soy sauce and a abundance of concentrated fruit that lingers.
3) Sorby Adams 2015 The Reverend Canon Shiraz & Cabernet Blend
The wine is named in honour of Simon's great uncle; The Reverend Canon, who was a minister at St. Hugh’s Church in the town of Angaston (1956 – 1960) Barossa.
Just like the Reverend Canon, the wine embraces strength and power with intense deep red colour and purple hues. A rich complex palate of dark berries, seasoned oak and Morello cherry notes. Cellaring will only bless this great wine, if one has the patience!
4) Poonawatta 2015 Four Corners Shiraz
The Four Corners Shiraz is a collection of four outstanding vineyards across the Eden Valley region; also known as Barossa’s high country. Showcasing a region within the region, has delivered a wine with depth and complexity.
The four corners is concentrated with noted blue and blackberry fruits, lifted spice and nutmeg is obvious. Hints of French oak are compelling.
5) Forbes & Forbes 2014 Alexander Murray Blend
An unusual year to have all three red wine varieties ripen at once; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Cabernet Franc. This uncommon red wine blend has long been a favourite for many Forbes fans. With the depth of colour, the fresh minty nose, along with Christmas spices, dark chocolate, seasoned oak and delightful ripe sweet fruits to savour.
This wine is alluring and invites conversation. Highly recommend for those seeking something different from the Barossa.
6) Riley’s of Eden Valley 2016 Eden Valley Merlot
Merlot is an excellent red wine variety to grow in the high country of the Barossa. The warm days lead into cool, breezy evenings. The sandy loam soil allows for ideal drainage and a deep layer of red clay sustains moisture when the vines require replenishment.
The wine delivers obvious intensity and power to match the deep red colour and concentrated fruity nose. Minerals intertwine with raspberry, satsuma plum, Morello cherry, coffee beans and dark coverture chocolate.
Youthful and enjoyable but so worth collecting a few for the cellar.
Barossa Berocca! 100% Sparkling Shiraz!
Sparkling red wines are one of the best discoveries when visiting cellar doors.
Refreshing, fruity, loaded with colour and a delight for many food matches. My recommendation is to enjoy with an Indian Dahl Curry, Italian pasta dishes, Moroccan cuisine or a rich dark chocolate pudding loaded with sweet seasonal berries.
Six Pack Includes;
