2018 Heirloom Vineyards A'Lambra Eden Valley Shiraz

Barossa - Eden Valley Shiraz

Vineyard: A'Lambra Eden Valley Shiraz is sourced from one of the best Shiraz vineyards in Eden Valley. Old vine with various clones and viticulture cutting edge, while maintaining traditions of the past. Hand tended vines in all vineyard management.

SeasonThe 2018 vintage will be remembered as one of those outstanding vintages. Beginning with the winter months delivering good rainfall. This leadinto an average spring enabling a strong start to the growing season. Warm temperatures were slightly above average for the December - January months. Barossa's high country is noted for cooler evenings, allowing vines to replenish from the hot summer temperatures. Colour and intense fruit concentration was achieved, with limited overall fruit production the only disappointing result.

Winemaking: Open fermented, basket pressed and matured in American and French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.

Appearance: Transylvanian red.... deep and intense.

Aroma/Bouquet: Lifted dark, red concentrated berries, a signature of Eden Valley Shiraz. Distinctive aromas of blackberry, stewed plums with an intriguing nose of spice and perfume of blueberries.

Palate: Deep concentrated blackberry fruits with licorice, dark chocolate and notes of tar lift from the glass. Alluring and perfumed with intensity but traditional Eden Valley elegance. A perfect wine for long conversations.
