'There's lovely fruit-sweetness in the middle and a certain raspberry jam Eden Valley signature. Excellent.'

  • Single Vineyard Eden Valley Syrah from a dry-grown vineyard set on the Drögemüller family’s original Springton orchard. Highly perfumed it shows wild forest berries & white pepper aromas and a complex palate of fresh Black Berries, peppercorns and refreshing Morello cherries.


    Lower yields and a warm, moderate January provided an early start to our harvest in late february. A sudden rain event in early february marked a change to unseasonably mild conditions allowing us to pick vineyards at optimal ripeness without loss of natural acidity.

    Fermented in a 6 tonne open fermenter with 7 days skin contact and twice daily pump-overs. Matured in shaved, seasoned (two to five year old) french oak hogsheads for 11 months.


    'Deepish red/purple hue, with a lifted floral aroma, clean and fresh and aromatic. The palate is similar, not big or heavy but intense and spicy, red-fruited and elegant, and finishing long on the aftertaste, with abundant firm tannins. There's lovely fruit-sweetness in the middle and a certain raspberry jam Eden Valley signature. Excellent. (Droegemueller Rd vineyard, Springton)'

    'Char-grilled pepper steak, black fruits and boot polish, a whiff of dried herb. Medium bodied, meaty and savoury, with pastille and prune, grainy tannin, a slight angularity to the palate with an almost ‘metallic’ feel, though not in a bad way, I’d add, and a spicy red and black fruited finish. A wilder more bunchy style of Barossa Shiraz, but pretty nicely done.'
