Winemaking notes

Perfect grape ripening weather with balanced sugars, colours and natural acidity. These conditions resulted in a later harvest, some three to four weeks, than recent years, which was a return to ‘normal’. The delayed harvest allowed grapes to ripen more slowly and evenly with a gradual accumulation of sugars and flavours, which is what we look for when making high-quality Barossa wines. The yields were around 20-30% higher than the fiveyear average. Eden Valley Riesling is predicted to be a stand-out this year and another great year for Barossa Valley Shiraz which promises to deliver an array of styles from bright and aromatic wines from the earlier-picked vineyards through to concentrated, intense and well-structured wines.

Tasting notes

Ripe and juicy berries flow onto the palate which is medium-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins adding a lovely structure and texture to the wine. Sweet and briary spices balance the juicy fruits through to the finish.
