Christa Deans, who is the regarded as the 'Queen of Eden Valley Riesling', has produced the white wines since 2004 and Kym Teusner, one of the 'Barons of the Barossa', has been entrusted to make the red wines since 2007.
The Eden Hall team embrace the philosophy of producing high quality wine grapes using eco-friendly, sustainable land management practices that ensure both long-term landscape and viticultural viability.
Eden Hall 'Block 4' Shiraz 2015
The 2015 growing season started well with above average early winter rains that filled the soils and dams, however it was dry from then on. Temperatures were above average in spring allowing the vines to get away to a good healthy start.
2015 was a cracking vintage in pace, yield, and above all quality and is likely to surpass the 2002 vintage in greatness.
The 2015 Eden Hall Shiraz comes from selected rows in Block 4 and spent 18 months in French Oak followed by more than a year in bottle prior to release. It is bright crimson/purple in colour, the nose is dominated by spice and sweet dark fruit with tar lurking in the background. Chewy plum and black fruits are followed by savoury tannins providing a broad palate of great length. Enjoy now and beyond 2033.
