Sublime Beauty from Eden Valley
Glug GH31 Winemakers Individual Barrel Selection Eden Valley Shiraz 2018
Region:Eden Valley, South Australia
Henschke, Sons of Eden, Poonawatta and several others prove beyond doubt that reds from Eden Valley reach heights as great as any made in Australia.
Eden Valley is to the east and south of the Barossa Valley and is higher and drier. Add in ripening warmth of the grapes and exciting wines result. GH31 is exceptional and will match any others on your table.
Of the influences that can affect the taste when compared to the Barossa Valley it will be the additional height of 150 to 300 metres above the Barossa Valley which will have the most influence on taste. Fragrance and aroma will replace some of the fruit density though GH31 is a not medium or light bodied such as you would describe a Yarra Valley wine. Neither does it have the cooler, flavour tones, of Shiraz from Margaret River so expect quite a mouthful.
