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.

  • Pewsey Vale Dry Riesling Eden Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Quite perfumed on the nose, with aromas of apple blossoms, dry tree bark, quince and limes.While painfully young, this shows great cut in the mouth with a nice edge of richness, though it remains medium to light bodied. There's a lovely rush of sour apple, lime and raw quince flavors on the palate, with gentle floral accents and a hint of spice ... Read More

  • Yalumba Shiraz Blend Y Series Shiraz/Viognier 2009

This is a little tight on entry but shows fine balance with an early rush of blueberry and blackberry fruit followed by l... Read More
