Single Vineyard, Eden Valley Wines of elegance and finesse



2009 Shiraz


Out of stock

The 2009 Eden Hall Shiraz is an exciting proposition and presents with an alluring and striking blue-purple colour. This is a full bodied offering with an exotic bouquet of wild flowers/honeysuckle, crème de cassis, chocolate, spices and white pepper. With an abundance of sweet, ripe, dark fruit, a viscous texture and powerful, yet fine, tannins, this wine has fine fruit purity as well as length. Silky and seductive, yet built for the long haul, it can be cellared for 10 years to develop greater complexity, but will afford delicious drinking over the next 4 – 6 years

The 2009 vintage was preceded by another drought winter, with 399mm rainfall in Eden Valley for the year, and one of the coldest. December didn’t record any days over 32oC, while January tended to warm to hot with a couple of heat spikes into the high 30s and low 40s. Late January brought a record six days over 40oC, causing significant vine stress, exacerbated by the lack of sub soil moisture, followed by another week of extreme hot weather.Subsequent weather was mild and dry and from March 1 moved into autumn mode, perfect ripening weather. A strong change in early March brought a general rain across the state, which helped the vines pull through from the heat.
