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.
Food Pairing: Home made beef and mushroom pie, infused truffle egg and eggplant tart or a selection of mature soft cheese.
