2017 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.

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. 

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

Appearance: Intense bright purple hue and an inkier royal red carpet colour closer to the centre of the glass.

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 liquorice, 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.
