2015 Eden Trail Shiraz

Comments

The wine is extremely spicy on the nose, with hints of violets and lashings of blue fruits. The palate of the wine offers the same experience as the nose. A strong linear acid backbone and fine tannin gives the wine an elegant structure. While the wine has been crafted to be enjoyed from release it will benefit from careful cellaring.

Vinification Notes

Picked during the cool of night. An intentional minimalistic approach to winemaking to ensure the vineyard character sings. Fermented with a small percentage of stalks and whole berries, in small open fermenters and hand worked twice daily. Warm fermentation is followed by maturation in French oak barrels for 12-16 months (depending on parcel). Minimal fining and filtration prior to bottling.

92 Points - Wine Spectator, October 2017

Thick and lush, with clove-scented red and black fruit flavors, showing accents of cedar, sandalwood and gingerbread on a seamless body

90 Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate September 2018

From vineyard blocks around the winery, the 2015 Eden Trail Shiraz features hints of eucalyptus, cola and spice. It's a savorier style than most will expect, with medium body, supple tannins and a crisp finish.

91 Points – James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2018

Dripping with boysenberries, blackberries and spiced plums. Full-bodied yet bright as anything with some grip to the drying tannins, slippery oak, savoury yet sweet fruited at the same time.
