A complex ethereal expression of Eden Valley Syrah, its graphite tannins are supported by dark cherry, savoury and spice flavours. This wine has been matured in 50% new French oak puncheons for 17 months sur lie to further enhance its flavours. A wine for ‘grown-ups’, so undress it now if you’re feeling frisky, or in 8-10 years.

Eden Valley is the perfect playground for us to further explore our winemaking philosophy, which we describe as a ‘sensibility for tradition with a passion for innovation’. At a higher elevation than the Barossa Valley below, one can make even more diverse and seductive expressions of Syrah that speak of their unique sites.

Tasting Note
2013 'Does Your Dog Bite?' Eden Valley Syrah - Craneford, James Suckling, August 2018. Score: 94

Aromas of asphalt, tar, black cherries, vanilla and hints of pepper. Full body, round tannins, fresh acidity and a wonderful, juicy finish. Really delicious.
