A finely structured expression of Eden Valley Syrah, its textured palate supports complex cherry, earth and spice flavours. This wine has been matured in 35% new French oak hogsheads for 17 months sur lie to further enhance its texture. A wine for ‘grown-ups’, so undress it now if you’re feeling frisky, or in 8-10 years time if you’re looking for a sensual tryst.
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.
