Barossa - Eden Valley Shiraz
This family owned, artisan wine label is one to look out for. A few vintages under the Garden & Field label have been produced, while most of the Shiraz grapes are acquired by Penfold's. With other premium wines created from this vineyard, such as; John Duval wines, Powell & Son (Dave Powell) gives wine enthusiast an indication of how good the fruit actually is.
The vineyard itself is surrounded by the stark beauty of Moculta’s rolling hills and ancient gums, Gnadenberg Road in the Barossa’s high country has an understated, yet significant provenance. The name of the road itself speaks volumes, translating from German as Hill of Grace. It borders highly sought-after viticultural land, rich in local history, including that of Garden & Field’s distinguished home block. Just 1.6 kilometres down the road to the east is Henschke’s world-renowned Hill of Grace Vineyard.
A limited production of 400 bottles were handcrafted for the 2017 vintage. This wine label, although fairly new to the shelf, comes highly recommended. Often poured as a tasting wine via the wine room, the joy we see on peoples faces is an absolute delight.
The power and intensity of this Shiraz is noted instantly, from the first glass the colour will captivate you; deep crimson-purple. The aromatics are intense with French oak, black berry, licorice, stewed blue fruits and an array of peppers. This wine is balanced and deep on the palate with a strong future for long term cellaring.
