2013 Eden Hall Wines Block 3 Eden Valley Cabernet

Vineyard: The Avon Brae vineyard produces distinctive Shiraz and Cabernet based wines of impeccable balance, freshness, varietal character and fruit purity.

Season: The 2013 vintage was early following a dry winter, spring and summer in the Eden Valley. Whilst January was a little cooler than average, the summer was generally hot and dry. Thankfully there were only a few heat spikes into the forties. Yields again were low across all varieties apart from the Riesling, which didn’t seem too fazed by the conditions, and yet confirmed that Eden Valley is its natural home.

Winemaking: The 2013 Eden Hall Cabernet Sauvignon comes from selected rows in Block 3 and spent nearly two years in French oak, followed by more than a year in bottle prior to release.

Appearance: Dense crimson

Aroma/Bouquet: Dark soy, couverture chocolate, liquorice &  tar nuances.

Palate: Luxurious dark fruits of plum and blackcurrant on the palate. A complex, full-bodied wine; finishing with mouth-filling and brooding tannin.
