2012 Eden Trail Shiraz

Comments

Lifted aromas of spicy dark cherries with a hint of cedary oak. A medium to full bodied wine; the palate is a maze of spice, pepper and dark fruits, the finish is bright and refreshingly clean.

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.

JAMES HALLIDAY, WINE COMPANION 2016

93 Points - 'Mouthfilling shiraz with peppermint, boysenberry, clove and blackberry flavours rollicking from start to finish. Freshness of flavour is a key feature; it's juicy, lively and eager-to-please, but not at the expense of discipline. Winsome style.'
