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.

  • Yalumba Eden Valley Fdr 1a 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful aromas of eucalyptus, tanning leather, oregano and a touch of texas barbecue. Flavors are explosive with bright red cherries, fresh acidity, candied currants, cinnamon and clove. This is a truly big wine, commanding and full of gripping tannins and loads of acidity. Bring lots of food with you to this party. Read More
