Barossa - Eden Valley Shiraz
Vineyard: Eden 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 noted for deep colour and flavour intensity.
Wine making: NA
Appearance: Deep crimson-red.
Aroma/Bouquet: Savoury spice, blackberries and black pepper on the nose.
Palate: Concentrated berry fruits and lifted ripe plums with prunes give way to fine, dusty tannin and black cherry. Cured meats are intertwined with an array of berries leading to a smooth, luscious and fruity - medium bodied.

Vineyard: Established in 1972 , Mountadam High Eden Estate is one of Australia’s oldest and first cool climate Chardonnay vineyards. Situated on a unique rocky outcrop the estate commands an easterly aspect over Eden Valley.
Season: In stark contrast to the previous year, the 2017 growing season followed a long wet winter that replenished soil water profiles and a wet, windy September. A mild summer included regular rainfall events ensuring a long, cool ripening period. Bunch weights increased as the variety naturally creates heavy fruit loads.
Wine making: Harvested in the cool of the night and gently pressed via a bag press. The juice was fermented in 50% new French barriques, the balance in 1 and 2 year seasoned barrels. The wine was intermittently plunged (battonage) throughout the maturation period. Malolactic fermentation prior to racking before returned to barrel. Selected parcels were racked after 12 months maturation, leaving the final blend to the wine makers selection.
Appearance: Pale straw in colour.
Aroma/Bouquet: Fresh notes of nectarine, peach with ripe figs and new French oak nuances
Palate: The palate has a complex mix of peach, orange citrus, cashew, subtle truffle and spice characters. The mid palate is round and textured with a clean citrus backbone. The wine is complex with balanced and integrated acidity.
Food Pairing: Lobster Mornay, Three Cheese Risotto, Tarragon Chicken with cream sauce....
Residual Sugar: NA
Cellar potential: 20+ years
