Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
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. 90% of the grapes were sourced from Gundagai, which sits
at 300 metres above sea level and the soil type is a red iron stone rich podsol -similar
to Coonawarra's Terra Rossa. The vines here are 20 years old. The remainder of the
fruit was grown in the Canberra and Hilltops vineyards. Canberra sits on
decomposed granite at 640 metres above sea level and the vines are 18 years old.
The vines in the Hilltops vineyard are approximately 20 years old and are grown in a
red clay and decomposed granite soil, at an altitude of 600 metres.
Winemaking
The sub-regional parcels were all fermented separately, mostly destemmed, though
a small proportion each year and each region is whole bunch fermented- resulting in
15% of final blend. The ferments were pressed when dry, into tank for settling. The
Syrah was matured in three to 20 year old 500 litre puncheons for 14 months. No new
oak was used. The puncheons were racked, blended and filtered into bottle.
Tasting Note
Very fine tannins and controlled alcohol add to this wine's charm. Packed with
classic nuances of berry fruit and a warm earthiness, this wine finishes fresh and
lighter than you expect.
Serving Suggestion
Ideal with a mushroom risotto or pancetta wrapped rabbit.
