More Information

A winery that can genuinely claim to fly well under the radar, particularly so given the extreme historical nature of the vineyards.

"The Poonawatta story is complex, stemming from 0.8ha of shiraz planted in 1880. When Andrew Holt's parents purchased the Poonawatta property, the vineyard had suffered decades of neglect and the slow process of restoration began. While that was underway, the strongest canes available from the winter pruning of the block were slowly and progressively dug into the stony soil, establishing the Cuttings Block over seven years, and the yield is even lower than that of the 1880 Block. The Riesling is produced from a separate vineyard planted by the Holts in the 1970s." 5 Star Winery Rating - James Halliday

"The cuttings were taken from the original 1880 plantings in the late '70s-early '80s. Open-fermented, matured for 18 months in French barriques (25% new). Deep crimson-purple; full-bodied, with no apologies for the level of fruit and oak extract that keeps the resentful tannins at bay." 95pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion

Where this wine comes from - Eden Valley

At an average altitude of 500 metres, think of Eden Valley as the high altitude cousin and neighbour of the Barossa Valley. The ‘high country’ drops the average temperature a couple of degrees, and with cool summer nights, the region is perfect for natural acid retention. No wonder Eden Valley Riesling performs so well and has built an international reputation for its vibrant citrus, mineral and floral aromatics in its youth, with the structure to cellar for years, particularly under screw cap. Eden Valley Shiraz performs well like Barossa Valley Shiraz, but there’s a touch more refinement here with violets, pepper and blueberry fruits. There’s elegance and finesse here, still with the fruit power and intensity you expect from the Barossa wine region.
