Tasting Notes

This Eden Road wine takes its identity from its unique terroir. This wine's flavour profile and structure is unique to its home region - the Canberra District. A suave and sophisticated Syrah grown in cool, continental conditions means the palate is refined by spice and fine acidity over powerful fruit. Cherry, subtle herbs and rose petals define the perfume while red and black fruits and cherry flavours satisfy the palate.

“The ‘younger generation’ of Canberra District are really holding their own, and, to me, offer some of the most exciting, interesting, ‘fine wines’ coming out of Australia right now. O’Leary, McKay, Martin, Van der Loos, Spencer is the roll call. That being said, they’ve got good company from established producers ... and pioneers of the Canberra District. It’s also promising to see many seeking out fruit from ‘Canberra Region’ which loosely includes Tumbarumba, Gundagai, Hilltops and Southern Highlands. Eden Road wines are adventurous for their spread, but this is their ‘home town staple’ per se. Gosh. So good. Right away that urge to swallow. Set the wine aside and watch it bloom. A gloriously perfumed, medium bodied, spicy syrah. Tannins finesse the wine, caress the purpley red-black berry-cherry fruit flavours, keep the wine from sloshing around too much. Scents of red fruits, peppery spice, faint herbs, rose petals. Plenty of structure in the wine, and spice (again), and chalky pucker, but it’s that effortless, bright cool fruit feel that keeps dragging me back into the wine. Utterly seductive. Essential for Canberra/cool climate syrah lovers. Show more Show less

“Light and elegant but insistent in the end. It warrants the old 'Burgundian shiraz' description. It tastes of nut-infused cherries, red and black, with tangy twists of herbs and sap. Spice notes abound. As does perfume. It doesn't hit you between the eyes ”
