2016 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:  The dry weather meant that when the night time temperature dipped, there were again late frosts, but thankfully not damaging Avon Brae. December and early January were warm but rains at the end of January and early March were welcomed. Along with milder weather, we eventually realised the ideal ripening conditions.
