Eden Valley, South Australia. 14%
Consumed over two nights. On the first night the acid is quite prominent. This is an elegant wine. Reminds me of some top Hunter Shiraz. On the second night it opened up. This really is an elegant seamless beautifully balanced wine. The antithesis of the burly or syrupy late picked Barossa styles.
On the nose it’s a bit muted due to the milky (Hungarian) oak but it all comes together taste-wise. The oak is just a frame for what is elegant supple fruit that I wouldn’t call cool climate but it’s not hot. Low tannin.
This wine should have an impressive future. Best in 10 years time (2021).
Grown at an altitude of 400 metres.
