Eden Valley

Our Price: $105.00 / bottle (RRP: $120.00 ) Case: 3 x 750ml

'Blackberry, blackcurrant, sage and mint, liquorice and chocolate boxes, and an almost rosy perfume, and yes, it smells very good, but that’s just the appetizer.'

    Nothing short of a miracle. The 2016 Lamella is a wondrous wine that has few, if any peers in Australia. Eden Valley Shiraz that outshines even the biggest of challengers from the area (that includes you Hill of Grace). Where else on earth can you get so much latent power, precision and tannin definition in a wine that still seems poised and balanced. Dan Standish is the wonder-kid and this is his best gear yet. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    100% Shiraz. Sourced from the Hamilton Family Vineyard - Springton Eden Valley. Planted on own roots in 1858. Granite marl at 500 metres above sea level.

    TASTING NOTES

    Fragrantly scented, tautly structured and finely poised - this represents the coiled reserve of the Eden Valley. Valley. Delicately portioned and beautifully balanced its fragrant notes of acacia petal, crème de cassis and parfait amour are supported by an underlying swath of Szechuan pepper, Guatemalan cocoa and cool limestone. Supple, lithe, its youthful ease
    shouldn’t detract from the sea of promise it holds for the future.

  • REVIEWS

    'Hutton Vale Farm, Eden Valley. You can buy a lot of more expensive wines from this neck of the woods, though I doubt they’d be better.

    Blackberry, blackcurrant, sage and mint, liquorice and chocolate boxes, and an almost rosy perfume, and yes, it smells very good, but that’s just the appetizer (cue Cartman). Full bodied, almost a juiciness here, but then comes a sweep of ultra-fine tannin, that might best be described as ‘sexual chocolate’. Oh those tannins. Lavish mouth-soaking tannin layered through cool Eden Valley Shiraz fruitiness. Black tea, don’t mind if I do. And a finish that’s rippling with tannin, flavour and freshness. It’s obscenely good.'
