2013 EDEN VALLEY
BLOCK 3 CABERNET SAUVIGNON
The 2013 vintage was early following a dry winter, spring and summer in the Eden Valley. Whilst January was a little cooler than average, the summer was generally hot and dry, but thankfully there were only a few heat spikes into the forties.
Yields again were low across all varieties apart from Riesling which didn’t seem too fazed by the conditions, and yet again confirmed that Eden Valley is its natural home.
The 2013 Eden Hall Cabernet Sauvignon comes from selected rows in Block 3 and spent nearly two years in French oak followed by more than a year in bottle prior to release. It is dense crimson in colour with capsicum, celery and tar on the nose and luxurious dark fruits of plum and blackcurrant on the palate.
A complex full-bodied wine finishing with mouth-filling, brooding tannins. Enjoy now and beyond 2030.
