The high country of Eden Valley has a long history of viticulture equaling that of the Barossa Valley. Joseph Gilbert planted the first vines at his Pewsey Vale vineyard in 1847, the same year as the first plantings by Johann Gramp in the Barossa Valley at Rowland Flat. Eden Valley covers an area as large as that of the Barossa Valley proper, albeit less intensely developed. It is justifiably famous for its Riesling, which vies for supremacy with that of the Clare Valley. This region is also home to such renowned Shiraz vineyards as Henschke's Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone and the Chardonnay vineyards of Mountadam. High Eden is an official subregion. Altitude is all-important in determining mesoclimate although aspect and slope are also important in this hilly terrain. Thus, at an altitude of around 500 metres (1640 feet) the Pewsey Vale, Heggies and High Eden vineyards at the southern end of the Eden Valley are appreciably cooler than the more northerly Henschke vineyards at an elevation of Read more »

  • Peter Lehmann Shiraz Barossa Valley Eight Songs 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Typical Lehmann Shiraz. As the German reviewer indicates, there is a lot of plum preserve with some chocolate and (perhaps) some vanilla. The bouquet has cola notes as well with the usually dark cherry and hint of cigar tobacco. A bit warm on entry - like many in this style - but balanced and structured to age for a few more years. Suggest t... Read More

  • Peter Lehmann Shiraz Barossa Valley Black Queen 2005

    Snoothrank:

    One of my favorite under $20.00 wines, actually, compares very favorably to wines costing twice as much. Smooth, every party I have taken it to everyone wants to know where they can get it. I usually pick up a case at a time....Can't go wrong for this price... Read More

  • Thorn-Clarke Shiraz Barossa Valley James Goddard 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Opaque violet in the glass, with aromas of luscious black fruits, leather & tar, mouth-filling black plum, blackberry, baking spice and scorched earth dancing with fine tannins over a long finish. It did right by our lamb shanks and our guests. Read More

    Pewsey is a classic Eden valley Riesling, very easy to drink and at around AUD15 it is fantastic value, the 2009 is even better Read More

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley Dry Riesling 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Perfect dry riesling. It seems harder and harder to find one with enough acidity for my tastes, but this is bright and tangy, just the way I like it for a lot of food-related purposes. I just had a (cheese) fondue party where I used this as the base, and in the glass-- Ideal! If you can't find a Fendant at your local wine shop ( ha ha!), you'd b... Read More
