Rated Equal #1 Barossa Shiraz - Gourmet Traveller Wine
2015 Eden Hall Block 4 (A$40) appealed to me with its beautifully aromatic, fresh nose of blue and red fruits. The palate continues in style, with classic Eden Valley elegance, fine tannins and supple balance. Caillard loved it, too. “Fresh red cherry, raspberry, blackberry and liquorice aromas with a touch of aniseed and sage,” he said. “Ripe and expressive wine with redcurrant and blackberry fruits. Fine loose-knit slinky tannins and underlying savoury oak. Attractive fruit density, richness and mineral length.” Gourmet Traveller Wine
The 2015 Eden Hall Shiraz comes from selected rows in Block 4 and spent nearly two years in French oak followed by nearly a year in bottle prior to release. It is a deep crimson-purple colour presenting with a subtle nose of cloves and white pepper. On the palate there is chewy, savoury black fruit with a broad fruit sweetness that lingers beyond the velvety tannins. A beautifully balanced expression of Shiraz from a single block. Enjoy now and beyond the next 20 years.
