Vineyard: Single vineyard estate grown (Avon Brae) is located in the High Eden region of Eden Valley/Barossa.
Season: Generous late winter rains replenished the soil profile followed into Spring. Consistent warm summer days with cool nights allowed for perfect slow ripening, maximising Riesling bunch flavour. The vintage will be long remembered as an exceptional one.
Wine making: Blend of three varieties, Grenache, Shiraz, Mataro (GSM)
Appearance: Medium red
Aroma/Bouquet: Bursting ripe raspberries, plums, Turkish delight, musk confectionery with lifted pepper and spice including nuances of clove.
Palate: Luscious red berries are obvious with flavours of flint and soft washed slate. A medium bodied wine that demands Mediterranean cuisine.
Food Pairing: Grilled Lamb cutlets with lashings of rosemary and olive oil, Margarita pizza, King George Whiting fillets wrapped in Pancetta and garden fresh broad beans. Slightly chill in warmer climates.

Save 20% and pop the red bubbles this winter!
Sparkling red wines are one of the best discoveries when visiting cellar doors.
Refreshing, fruity, loaded with colour and a delight for many food matches. My recommendation is to enjoy with an Indian Dahl Curry, Italian pasta dishes, Moroccan cuisine or a rich dark chocolate pudding loaded with sweet seasonal berries.

Vineyard: All the vineyards in the Four Corners range are assessed separately to ensure each parcel of fruit delivers its best individual expression of the Eden Valley region. The hero of this blend is the Grenache sourced from the original and ancient Hamilton vineyard near Springton. With only one tonne secured, it was blended with Shiraz from the Eden Valley region including a small parcel from Poonawatta vineyard to enable this beautiful blend.
Season: The 2012 growing season delivered mild conditions producing moderate yields. No severe weather events occurred which provided excellent growing conditions for high quality Eden Valley Shiraz and Grenache.
