2017 Eden Hall Wines Springton Shiraz

VineyardEden Hall vineyard is situated on the estate site of Avon Brae at an altitude of 450m. Springton Shiraz is selected from parcels of Shiraz fruit to showcase the vineyard site. The vineyard rows are established north to south to maximise quality for best vineyard management. Terroir is resting over fractured rock and sandy loam on a deep clay base.

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 not affected by this due to no irrigation established on site and allowed the Shiraz grapes to ripen with full colour and flavour intensity.
