Canberra Shiraz is unique to this region- stylistically the
perfume, silky plush tannins and spice define this region.
Located in Murrumbateman in the Canberra Wine District, boutique winery Eden
Road was established in 2008 by businessman Chris Coffman. It made an immediate
and stunning impact by winning the ‘Jimmy Watson Award’ for its first vintage of The
Long Road Shiraz (2008), Australia’s most prized wine accolade. These elegant and
refined wines are produced from some of Australia's highest vineyards in the
emerging region of Australia's 'High Country'. The unique combination of altitude
and some of the world's oldest soils, which were formed over 400 million years ago,
has resulted in a highly prized collection of original and exciting wines. New
winemaker Celine Rousseau has devoted 17 years to working in the 'High Country'
and has developed a strong understanding and passion for these cool climate
vineyards and their wines.
2012 was a cooler vintage with similar rain fall to 2011 but less consistent, as the rain
fell in a few big storms. There was less disease pressure and a longer hang time for
the grapes leading to spicier wines with greater tension and acidity.
Eden Road works towards natural management in the vineyards with minimum
intervention in terms of spraying, but hard work in terms of manually tending the
vines and managing the soils. They follow organic viticulture where possible and all
vines are hand-picked. The Shiraz comes from a 19 year old single vineyard in
Murrumbateman on decomposed granite soils. These soils, coupled with the
continental cool climate, deliver beautiful perfumed and powerful Shiraz.
The vinification included 20% of the grapes which were fermented as whole bunches.
Following fermentation, the wine was matured in 500 litre old French barrels for 12
months before bottling without using pumps. This wine regularly comes in at under
13% alcohol, showing its true cool climate origins.
A cool-climate Shiraz with soft elegant notes of ripe forest fruits which are set against
the typical peppery spice.
This is a great match with duck, game or a rich mushroom risotto.
