Introducing Burkes Hill Single Site Eden Valley Shiraz

Introducing Burkes Hill Single Site Eden Valley Shiraz

We're thrilled to unveil our latest gem – the 2021 Gibson Burkes Hill Single Site Eden Valley Shiraz.

Crafted by our founder and chief winemaker, Rob Gibson, this release marks a significant milestone for Gibson as we debut our first-ever single vineyard Shiraz in our 28-year history.

The Burkes Hill vineyard, nestled in the picturesque Eden Valley, stands as a testament to natural beauty and viticultural excellence. Perched at 430 meters above sea level with an Easterly aspect, it commands attention as the foreground of the Eden Valley scenic lookout.

While the Burkes Hill vineyard has long been lauded for its exceptional Riesling, this new release marks a departure from tradition as we venture into the realm of single site Shiraz. Drawing from his extensive experience spanning 50 years, Rob attests to the exceptional quality of the vintage, heralding it as one of the finest in recent memory.

"2021 has proven to be a really compelling year," remarks Rob. "The unique characteristics of the Burkes Hill site, coupled with favorable weather conditions, have yielded wines with remarkable age-ability."

Our 2021 Burkes Hill Single Site Eden Valley Shiraz joins an esteemed lineup of Shiraz offerings, reflecting our commitment to showcasing the diverse terroir of the Barossa region. While we traditionally employ a philosophy of multi-site blending, this release serves as a poignant reminder of the complexity and nuance that can be achieved through a singular expression of place.

"This release represents a departure from our conventional approach," explains Rob. "By focusing on a specific patch of dirt, we aim to ignite a conversation about the intricacies of terroir and the artistry of winemaking."

The first release of 2021 Burkes Hill Shiraz is presented in limited-edition timber cellar cases, priced at $700 for a six-pack. As a tribute to the vineyard's picturesque setting, every case includes a museum-quality panorama of the Burkes Hill vineyard captured by renowned landscape photographer Dragan Radocaj.

With only 100 six-packs available, this exclusive release offers wine lovers and collectors the opportunity to experience the unparalleled beauty and exceptional quality of our latest masterpiece.

Indulge in the epitome of Barossa luxury with the 2021 Gibson Burkes Hill Single Site Eden Valley Shiraz – a testament to craftsmanship, tradition, and the enduring allure of fine wine.
