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 »

  • Heggies Vineyard Chardonnay Eden Valley Single Estate 2007


    Nose of tropical fruit with a whiff of French oak. Color of pale yellow. Entry is pleasing, with a somewhat neutral (bland) effect on the palate, but pleasing and refreshing all the same. Medium finish with hints of cooking spice, but generally light, pure and fresh. A well-crafted Chardonnay that should accompany many light dishes and work ... Read More

  • Barton Vale Cabernet Sauvignon Eden Valley the Lazarus 2001


    Perfect right now! I found it for $20 and thought if there was any time to drink it, at 9 years, now would be the time. I'd put this up against any upper tier Napa cab. Showing extremely well right now. Rich, delicious, ripe and well balanced. Read More

  • Peter Lehmann Shiraz Barossa Valley Eight Songs 2007


    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.
