Handpicked early morning, the 23rd of March, “Dreams of Gold” comes from vines planted in 1997 and 2013. The wine has been made in a 4 tonne fermenter and stayed on skin for 18 days before being pressed in a small basket press.

Winemaker Notes: The latest addition to the Estate comes from the youngest blocks of the property planted in 2013 and is complemented with the 1997 shiraz. Handpicked for the first time in 2020, “Dreams of Gold” is a bright purple, vivid colour. It exhibits vibrant red fruits with minty eucalypt and winter greens on the nose. These aromatics pass through on the palate and complement the soft supple tannins. This is a perfect example of Eden Valley Shiraz, seductive and elegant with great balance and length. It’s surprisingly very approachable and the bottle doesn’t last long around the table. 8,400 bottles made.

Zalto Denk-Art Bordeaux Glass

Due to further lockdowns in Austria we are experiencing extended delays with our Zalto orders.  

We are currently expecting our next delivery to arrive October 2021.

The Zalto Bordeaux glass is recommended for weightier style reds, probably our most widely used glass when tasting in house, this glass is great for many different wines. The large bowl helping aerate and soften tannins whilst accentuating the wine's depth and concentration. The Bordeaux glass is the ideal choice for Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel, Bordeaux or Rhône style blends and many other red wines. Surprisingly, it is also the glass of choice for oaked Chardonnay, the shape of the bowl accentuating the balance of ripe fruits and oak.

Barr-Eden Estate

Region

Eden Valley is a wine making region sharing a boundary with the Barossa Valley and is dotted with the rolling hills of the Barossa Ranges. The Eden valley competes with the Clare Valley for the top-spot in high-quality Riesling production and the grapes thrive in the cool climate of the region. The other varietal that is important to this area is Shiraz and this is responsible for some of Eden Valley’s most highly acclaimed wines – the styles differ from those produced in south eastern Australia in that they have riper and smoother tannins and more ripe black fruit aromas with sweet spice notes. The wines are extremely well-balanced and both the reds and whites garner a great deal of complexity during the ageing process.
