    Note By Philip Reedman - Master of Wine

    Old vineyards survive because they grow great fruit. The foundation for these wine is a vineyard planted 107 years ago in 1912; a vineyard which has survived and thrived through the good and bad times in the Barossa Valley.

    In the hands of John and Barb Kalleske the vineyard’s future is assured.  Showing all the attributes of classic old vine Barossa Shiraz, this 2016 vintage has it all in spades. The dense, deep garnet colour speaks of a meagre vineyard yield. 

    A bouquet offers up: cherry, damson and coconut with toasty, vanilla oak following behind.  The seamless, opulent palate is full-bodied, smooth and round; tantalisingly so. 

    For though this wine is good now its damson, licorice and dark chocolate flavours will develop and become so much more complex over the next dozen or so years.

    Try and keep some, please; the vineyard has hung around; there’s surely no rush to drink its progeny.

     Grab yours now before it all leaves the Atze's Cellar!

      Background/Story:

      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.

      fermentation in oak Barrels.

      Vineyard:

      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. 

      Vintage:

      2016 was a warmer than average ripening period, giving the wines their full bodied and intense concentrated black fruit characters.
