2015 Poonawatta The 1880 Eden Valley Shiraz

Barossa - Eden Valley Shiraz

Vineyard: The 1880 hand planted Shiraz vines produce premium iconic fruit with heritage dating back to the first settlers. Now accredited as a Barossa Trust Mark wine,  signifying a superior wine of the region.

SeasonSpring was dry and led into a very mild, dry summer with minimal disease pressure, resulting in fruit with high natural acidity and incredible flavours. January started with dry, hot and windy weather, however by the end of the first week, relief came with 60-75mm of rain and a record-breaking coolest January in 11 years. The rain was perfectly timed for dry-grown vineyards, and the mild weather that followed from February through to April delivered an exceptional vintage.
