Eddies Old Vine 2020 Shiraz (Average Vine Age 70 years)

  •  SOLD OUT 

    When you’re looking for the archetypal Barossa Valley Shiraz, look no further than this broodingly intense red. The core of this magnificent wine comes from three Old Vine vineyards planted by the Atze family in 1912, 1951 and 1975. There two workers Eddies Staehr (Andy Kalleske's great uncle) and Eddies Liebig planted the oldest of these three vineyards in 1912.

    Pristine and youthfully deep, it’s virtually impenetrable, with the ruby red colour showing the power and concentration that low yielding, seriously old vines provide. A gloriously aromatic bouquet led by sweet spices and backed up by damson plum, dark chocolate and the most subtle of toasty oak.

    The rich, enveloping palate is lush and smooth with bright fruit; dark cherries and Christmas cake made all the more complex by the layers of spices: cloves, cinnamon and anise. As anticipated, the finish is uber-long with a savoury, umami note that leaves you wanting another sip.

      For a wine so young, and one with so much potential to mature, Eddies Old Vine 2020 is drinking startlingly well right now. But don’t be fooled; this wine will last and last for 25 years with a good cellar and self-


      When you’re looking for archetypal Barossa Valley Shiraz look no further than this magnificent wine. The core of the wine is a century-and-a-bit old vineyard planted by the Eddies who give their name to the wine. Their plantings, together with two other old vine vineyards owned by the Kalleske family make up this broodingly intense red. 


      21 days extended maceration time on skins. Secondary fermentation in oak Barrels. Barrel ferment.

      30 Months in 60% New French oak hogsheads, 40% in second full French 


      Named in honour of the two Barossans who planted a vineyard in 1912, The Eddies Old Vine Shiraz celebrates the Barossa’s irreplaceable treasure-trove of old vineyards.  Combining the fruit from a rare ancient vineyard, planted in 1912, with fruit from a 59 year old vineyard and a 1975 block,  Andy Kalleske has captured the essence of these ancient vines which his parents, Barb and John have been nurturing for forty years. 


      2018 was an exceptionally early vintage due to a warmer than average ripening period, giving the wines their full bodied and intense concentrated black fruit characters.

    A beautiful wine

    When you want to enjoy a quality classic Barossa shiraz but you don't want a second mortgage, Eddies Old Vine is what you are looking. Dark plum, super soft and smooth, delicious fruit and a characteristic 'praline' like flavour that just makes me pour another glass!

    All Time Favourite

    This is my favourite wine all time. Been having it since 2006 vintage and never get sick of it. Always a step above most other quality wines. Silky smooth, dark and rich, flavourful.
