Rising from the Barossa floor, the Eden Valley’s bushy ridges and rolling hills are dotted with a series of vineyards, continuing all the way up to the cooler reaches of some 500m. There’s a notable attention to detail around the mostly older vines, yes, but it’s the rocky, shallow sites and their ancient soils, from loamy sand to clay to quartzite gravel, along with the higher elevation, that make them such a premium growing region. Perfect, in fact, for winemakers looking for a variety of fruit profiles and better acid retention, for balance, finesse and complexity.
