Vineyard: Cutting edge viticulture teamed with exceptional wine making has delivered a superb Shiraz from the Barossa's beautiful high country - Eden Valley. The vineyard is constantly monitored and managed to deliver premium Shiraz grapes.
Season: The dry weather meant that when the night time temperature dipped allowing late frosts, but thankfully not damaging Eden Valley. December and early January was warm but rain at the end of January and early March were welcomed. Along with milder weather, the Shiraz fruit ripened and delivered an exceptional vintage.
Winemaking: Open fermented, basket pressed and matured in French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.
Appearance: Intense rich brick red
Aroma/Bouquet: The aroma is an astonishing and lifted brace of blackberries, spice and a perfume like touch of blueberries. Pure fruit and spice, that is not in any way overwhelmed by wine making artefact. The wine has a concentration of aromas that come from quality Barossa fruit. The aromas change quickly in the glass and are fascinating to follow but the mouth beckons.
Palate: A seamless soft but structured Shiraz, concentrated blackberries with a mid-palate of dark chocolate and spice. Textured length and spice from the French Oak and a chalk like tannin structure.
Food Pairing: Slow cooked Beef cheeks, hearty Mushroom Risotto, Guinness and Beef pie…
Residual Sugar: NA
Cellar potential: 20+ years

Vineyard: Situated in the northern end of Eden Valley is the family owned and operated vineyard of Garden & Field. The site is spectacular which takes in a landscape of rolling hills with vineyards dotted in the distance. Planted on own roots and established as a non- irrigated site, with a southerly aspect. Elevation of 390m consisting of ancient volcanic soil, red brown earth, ironstone, quartz and schist rock lay over clay & limestone.
Season: A dry start to the vintage growing season with expected cooler evenings and seasonal late frosts. Due to the site elevation and vineyard establishment, little frost settled on the grape vines. A warm start to the summer season ensured a strong and healthy canopy structure. Along with warm weather, rain arrived and was higher than expected throughout January and February. The wine grapes were not affected due to no irrigation on site which grapes to ripen with full colour and flavour intensity.
Wine making: Cabernet Sauvignon and Refosco grapes were handpicked before a gentle basket press on site. Skin contact and hand plunging of the fermenting wine grapes continued for for 4-6 weeks, until dry. Traditional handcrafted and tended, reminiscent of yesteryear before maturing in seasoned French oak for 22 months. When bottled the wine was cellared to rest for a further six months prior to release.
Appearance: Deep crimson brick red with purple hue
Aroma/Bouquet: Aromas of violets, blue & black berries and exotic spices. Leather and cedar nuances intertwine with ripe berries and an earthy nose.
Palate: French oak dances around black and mulberry fruits with hints of leather and cedar notes.The wine offers layers of complexity, with concentrated fruit integrating through fine tannin structure. The palate is medium weight with an elegant finish.
Food Pairing: Osso Bucco, hearty Italian cuisine or any rich intense flavoured food. This wine long for a food partner.
