Single Vineyard, Eden Valley Wines of elegance and finesse



2007 Shiraz


Out of stock

The 2007 Shiraz is a deep purple colour, with an enticing nose of pencil lead, spicy tobacco oak, cracked white pepper and ripe red fruits. The palate is mouthful of pure and fresh red cherries and strawberries, with superb balance and lingering, fine tannins. Powerful, yet beautifully structured, this wine is a perfect expression of the magnificent Avon Brae vineyard. Drink now – 2020.

The 2007 vintage has proven to be a year of higher than expected quality, but with dramatically reduced yields in the
Eden Valley. We received less than half the expected Winter rainfall and the lack of sub-soil moisture ensured a reduction
in yields in the vicinity of 50%. Brief heat waves occurred during January; otherwise it was mild and dry. At the end of
January a tropical air mass connected with a cold front to bring good rains to the agricultural areas of South Australia,
with flooding up north. The 70mm rainfall fell steadily over four days, coinciding with veraison, which freshened up the
vine canopy to assist with ripening the fruit for harvest. February was recorded as the hottest for 100 years, which brought the already reduced crop to an earlier ripening phase.
