An outstanding wine. Eduard is sourced from three Kalleske vineyard blocks in the Barossa Valley that were planted between 1905 and 1960. Vines are dry grown and produce low yields. It is named after Karl Heinrich ‘Eduard’ Kalleske who worked the Kalleske vineyards from 1853 until the 1880s. The old vine Shiraz blocks are open-top fermented, traditionally pressed and matured in new and seasoned hogsheads for two years prior to bottling unfined and unfiltered. Eduard is an intense, powerful and full-bodied wine exhibiting dense classic Barossa Valley old vine Shiraz characters. Inky black fruit flavours abound together with harmonized tannins, subtle oak complexity a sturdy structure and great length. Eduard is a sophisticated wine of the highest calibre. Certified organic wine. 96 points from James Halliday for the 2015 vintage. Drink now or will reward careful cellaring for up to 15 years.
