Eden Hall Springton Shiraz 2015

Eden Hall Eden Valley Springton Shiraz

Vineyard: The dry weather meant that when the night time temperature dipped, there were again late frosts, but thankfully not damaging Avon Brae. Near perfect ripening conditions followed, leading into an earlier than usual harvest.

Season: Temperatures were above average in spring, allowing the vines to get away to a good, healthy start. Summer was generally mild with the exception of a few days of extreme heat after New Year. Thirty millimeters of rain on 8 January helped to refresh the vines. Shiraz and Cabernet ripened at the same time and were harvested around Easter. 2015 was a cracking vintage in pace, yield and above all, quality. It is likely to surpass the 2002 in greatness.

Wine making: NA

Appearance: Deep crimson-red.

Aroma/Bouquet: Savoury spice and black pepper on the nose.

Palate:  Concentrated berry fruits and lifted raspberries with prunes give way to fine, dusty tannin  and black cherry.  Cured meats are intertwined with an array of  berries leading to a smooth and medium bodied finish.

Food Pairing: Home made beef and mushroom pie, infused truffle egg and eggplant tart or a selection of mature cream cheese.

Eden Hall

David and Mardi Hall fell in love with the Eden Valley in the mid 1990s and purchased the Avon Brae property with its historic homestead in 1996. Avon Brae dates back to the 1840s when the Eden Valley was first settled. The Eden Valley is regarded by many as “the jewel in the crown” of the Barossa. Its rugged beauty and cool climate provide ideal conditions for the production of high quality Riesling and elegant red wines.
