2017 Eden Hall Wines Block 3 Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Barossa - Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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

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 Shiraz grapes were noted for deep colour and flavour intensity. 

Wine making: The 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.
