TASTING NOTES

2012 Glen Eldon Kicking Back Cabernet Shiraz

This wine is a traditional, full-bodied red from Barossa Valley. Quality fruit is combined with traditional winemaking methods and modern technology to produce a consistently great cabernet shiraz year-in, year- out. This is a classic Australian blend.

2012 Glen Eldon Dry Bore Shiraz

Dry-grown vineyards in the heart of Barossa Valley and the heights of Eden Valley continue to impress, producing small, yet concentrated bunches of premium shiraz. The fruit combined with traditional winemaking, open fermentation, basket pressing and barrel maturation crafts this iconic shiraz. The Dry Bore Shiraz offers the soul of Barossa Valley at exceptional value for money.

2012 Glen Eldon Eight Barrels Shiraz

Selected from the finest barrels at Glen Eldon’s homestead. Demonstrating the essence of Eden Valley shiraz, this wine offers all of the hallmark shiraz characters of chocolate, plum, spice, white pepper and silky fine tannins. Exceptional balance and structure offers great drinking today, however medium-cellaring will offer fantastic drinking.

2006 Glen Eldon Twisted Trunk Reserve Shiraz

Created from 100-year-old vines. The fruit is sorted, de-stemmed and fermented in 300-litre hogsheads. Each ferment is tendered to by hand, racked into new French and American hogsheads for 12 months, then racked again into hogsheads for three-year maturation. This allows the ripe fruit flavours to shine through and mature naturally.
