The Australian Old Vine Collection Eden Valley Shiraz celebrates our region’s magnificent old vines.

The Barossa region (which includes the Eden Valley) is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache vines growing on their own roots. Some of these vines are over 170 years old! This is a testament to South Australia’s strong biosecurity measures, which have prevented the movement of Phylloxera - a potentially devasting vine aphid, which killed off much of Europe’s grapevines in the 1800s.

Although low yielding, old vines produce intensely flavoured fruit with great concentration and depth of flavour. The Australian Old Vine Collection Eden Valley Shiraz showcases these characteristics beautifully. The fruit for this wine was largely sourced from our Burkes Hill Vineyard, with the Shiraz being 62 years of age.

The wine was vinified in small lot (0.5 - 1 tonne) open fermenters, with daily plunging or rack and return. It was matured for 18 months in new and matured French oak hogsheads and puncheons. 

Tasting Notes

Opaque purple hue. Lifted sweet Shiraz berry characters on the nose with notes of vanilla and blackberries. The palate is medium-weighted and very complex. It shows all the hallmarks of great Shiraz treated with good oak maturation to produce a great wine with ageing potential. Developing vinosity now with bottle age.
