Single Vineyard, Eden Valley Wines of elegance and finesse


Block 3 Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 Block 3 Cabernet Sauvignon


In stock

The 2019 Eden Hall Block 3 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from selected rows in Block 3, pruned to two arch canes. The wine spent 18 months in French oak (40% new). It is crimson red in colour with a cassis and savoury nose. The palate opens with dark ripe fruits followed by sour cherry and lingering soft tannins. A very approachable Cabernet that can be enjoyed now and cellared beyond 2030.

In a word, the 2019 growing season was – dry!

It started off dry and stayed that way. Mother nature challenged the vines with more frosts than usual and a windy flowering period that disturbed fruit set. To top it all off she threw in a hailstorm on 22 November! Thankfully the punch-drunk vines were given a small reprieve with no extreme temperatures in the ripening period and were put out of their misery with an early, compressed harvest beginning with the whites on 7th March and finishing with Shiraz on 22nd March.

The 2019 vintage resulted in our lowest yield on record, but outstanding quality wines across all varieties. Whenever you can find it, grab any 2019 wine from the Barossa/Eden Valley!
