Established in 1972 Mountadam High Eden estate is Australia’s first cool climate vineyard. Situated on a unique rocky outcrop ranging in elevation up to 550m, the vineyards have a commanding easterly aspect over the Eden Valley. This wine is made using tradition methods and is a blend of the exclusive multi clonal resources available on the estate.
This is fabulously expressed on the nose showing sweet raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, cedar and warm spice aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that is fleshy and velvety. It is up front and flavoursome with layers of silky texture and gorgeous flavours, leading to a lengthy smooth finish. At its best: now to 2025. Rating 93 Points; Sam Kim
A grapey, highly aromatic shiraz, playing the reductive card with a deft hand. Lilac lift caresses blue fruits aromas all, a whiff of salty iodine and terrine, pushed to a svelte finish by an effortless flow of peppery acidity. This is the sort of shiraz I enjoy drinking: mid-weight, savoury, fresh and reminiscent of the every day expressions from the northern Rhone, embellished with Aussie fruit.
