Drawn from vines planted in 1995, this 100% Murrumbateman Syrah comes from Eden Road’s own vineyard at 640 metres above sea level. The 2017 is a terrific, cool climate Syrah offering a bright, perfumed personality. Expect a swirl of fresh and spice-laden blackberry and fresh plum and a long, savoury, finely etched finish. Again, serious value.
A beautiful, silky, spicy, perfumed red of fine and sleek tannin profile tightening just-ripe red cherry and cranberry flavours with regional blue fruits jostling. The gist is, this is very elegant, seamless and long, with lots of lovely fruit flavour. Delicious for now. 95 Points, Mike Bennie, Wine Business Magazine
All of the fruit was de-stemmed and fermented in closed fermenters and lightly pressed at the end of fermentation. Fermented mostly into a mix of one-to-three year old, 500 litre puncheons with 10% new barrels for 16 months. Only the best barrels were then selected for this label.
