Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $130 / 2032

High in oak, high in fruit, high in qual­ity. This is warm-but-fresh; its rasp­berry, boy­sen­berry and vi­o­let-like drivers lay­ered with cedar wood and sweet smoke, its fine-grained tan­nin pulling ev­ery­thing into a neat, pow­er­ful pack­age. CM 15% alc. Pure Eden is a sin­gle-site wine, from an Eden Val­ley vine­yard be­lieved to be planted by Charles An­gas in the 1890s. It was later owned by the Shiltons (1911–1926), Meakins (1926-1929), the Roeslers (19291961), the An­dret­zkes (1961-2011) and now the Lind­ner fam­ily. This wine is a re­ward for their fore­sight in plant­ing shi­raz in the Barossa’s high coun­try and for the fam­i­lies who helped cher­ish, shape and tend an in­cred­i­ble old vine­yard. It’s a priv­i­lege to work with fruit from such a fan­tas­tic old site. Stylis­ti­cally, Pure Eden Shi­raz is the ‘yin’ to The Free­dom 1843 shi­raz’s ‘yang’.
