2010 Eagles Rest 'Shed Block' Shiraz
Careful attention to detail in the vineyard has resulted in this first release of a single site wine from the Shed Block. Concentrated dark berry and plum characters dominate the aroma. There is a brightness and fresh berry fruit brightness to the nose with a hint of spice and mineral. The palate is elegant yet defined in its tannin structure with soft berry fruit and spicy flavours filling out the soft and round texture. Classic Hunter River Burgundy style. A wine with 10 years plus cellaring potential.
~~ Matured for 18 months in French Oak ~~
James Halliday Wine Companion 2016
"The bright, deep colour sends a signal that this is worth paying close attention to, and doesn't deceive; it is at the upper end of medium-bodied, replete with a mosaic of red and black fruits, fine-grained, gently savoury tannins and integrated oak. It has length and perfect balance, guaranteeing a long and prosperous life - Cellar up to 2040" - James Halliday 2016
