Wine from Eden Valley

Eden Valley is an area of grape cultivation and production in Australia’s Barossa region, producing Riesling, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. It is located in the Southern area of the country known as the Barossa Zone. Eden Valley is also a town located in this area, which also goes by the nickname “Garden of Grapes and Gums”. Eden Valley is located in the south of the Barossa Zone and slightly east. It meets the Barossa Valley to establish Australia’s top wine region. The hills of Eden Valley provide the necessary elevation that help produce the area’s most popular styles of wine. The elevation allows for cooler temperatures, yet still allows for beneficial sunlight exposure. This combination allows for an extended growing season, which in turn, creates more concentration in the grapes. This is a huge advantage in terms of flavor profile for the wine produced from Eden Valley.  The hills of Eden Valley are comprised of rocky soils and clay. Eden Valley’s cool climate facilitates production of Riesling, with flavor profiles of citrus and floral with crisp acidity. These wines can age man years, giving rise to a rich toasted flavor. Eden Valley is famous for their Shiraz production, which offers ripe and silky tannin, along with pleasing spice and rich black fruit bouquets. Eden Valley Shiraz is exceptionally balanced and if allowed to age, will gain outstanding complexity.

Thorn Clarke Mt. Crawford Chardonnay 2017

Thorn Clarke Mount Crawford Chardonnay is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

This Chardonnay is a fine example of Mount Crawford climate, soil and aspect combining to display great varietal characters. The light green color has a vibrancy that is characteristic of the wine. Peach and tropical fruit flavors are complemented by a creamy texture from lees contact and a small amount of exposure to French oak. This also gives the wine a rich, long but clean finish with delicious white peach, pear and citrus notes.

The winemaker recommends trying this wine with chicken teppanyaki.


 

 

Thorn Clarke William Randell Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (magnum)

COMMENTS
Deep red in colour. The nose is lifted and expressive with lovely Christmas cake and mint characters along with black olives and tobacco leaf adding complexity. The palate is medium to full bodied with blueberry and hints of cassis as the primary fruit flavours. The palate has great poise with the vibrant fruit, spicy French oak and fine tannin structure all wonderfully balanced, and the wine finishes with great length of fruit.

VINIFICATION NOTES
The fruit was harvested at night. Fermentation was carried out in a variety of small capacity fermenters. After pressing the parcels were filled to French oak for maturation. The wine was racked after six months and the parcels were blended to form the final wine.

MATURATION
The wine was matured in a temperature controlled barrel hall for 16 months in French hogsheads (barrels).

VINTAGE NOTES
Average winter rainfall in 2009 resulted in good soil moisture in the 2010 growing season. This combined with moderate weather conditions through most of the growing season allowed for good fruit set and canopy development. 

HARVESTED
March 2010

"Full crimson-purple; while quite soft overall, both in fruit and tannin terms, the wine is full-bodied and fleshy, with dark chocolate and licorice joining the blackcurrant fruit and cedary oak. 14% alc."
James Halliday's TOP 100 over $20 (November 2012), 97 pts

"This Eden Valley wine displays classic Cabernet structure. It’s full-bodied and powerful, but never jammy or soft, like some Barossa Cabs. Vanilla accents pristine cassis fruit, which shows enormous depth. Drink 2018–2025, and very possibly beyond. -Joe Czerwinski"
