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 Australia’s most prized wine accolade, the ‘Jimmy Watson Award’ for its first vintage of The Long Road Shiraz (2008). These elegant and refined wines are produced from some of Australia's highest vineyards in the emerging 'High Country' region. 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. Winemaker Celine Rousseau has devoted 17 years to working in this area 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
