Halliday (Dave Brookes)

Deep crimson in the glass with ripe blackberry, satsuma plum and blackcurrant fruits cut with hints of briar, baking spices, cedar, earth, violets and licorice. There’s a graceful plume of fruit on the palate, which is spicy and herb-flecked with fine, sandy tannin support and a medium-length finish with a touch of red cherry flowing in on the exit.

James Suckling (Ned Goodwin)

Black currants, wild berries, crushed herbs, dried currant leaves, cedar and raw coffee beans on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with mellow dark fruit and minty, spicy notes. Tannins are creamy and supple with a velvety-textured finish.

James Suckling

A rich cabernet sauvignon with lots of currants and dried herbs, such as thyme and bay leaf. Impressive. Full-bodied with chewy tannins that give lots of grip. It’s chewy, but not unattractive, and entices you with the austerity and fruit.

This wine is from the vintage’s best Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and in 2022 was produced from predominantly the Cranes Range and Long Gully vineyards within Eden Valley.

The fruit was handpicked and 100% de-stemmed into an open top fermenter, where it remained for 18 days. Naturally fermented and hand plunged daily then pressed to a mix of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads for maturation. Matured in barrel for 15 months with no racking, before being clarified and bottled without filtration.

Made in only exemplary years. This classic wine is our offering to Eurus, Greek God of the East Wind, and is only made in exemplary vintages when Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays outstanding quality. Eden Valley is typically cooled in the mornings and evenings by Easterly gully winds which are ideal for slowing the ripening and refining varietal flavours.
