Eisenstone, Ebenezer, SR802, Shiraz, 2021, Barossa Valley, Australia

Producer Profile

Celebrating the rich German heritage of the Barossa Valley, the name Eisenstone comes from a blend of the German word for iron – Eisen and the English – Stone. The name celebrates the Ironstone soils in which the vines grow and the stone used by the original German settlers to build much of the famous Barossa buildings that still stand to this very day.

This is a brilliantly unique project headed by creator and winemaker Stephen Cook, who secures special parcels of grapes from the ‘western ranges’ of the famous Barossa Valley which are renowned for producing fuller bodied, powerful wines with amazing depth of flavour and exceptional aging ability. No more than 800 bottles of each wine are produced in any given vintage, each individually numbered. Within the Valley there are a number of recognised sub regions that vary in climate and soil type and bring out subtle differences in the variety.

Viticulture

The grapes were sourced from Adrian Hoffmann’s vineyard at Ebenezer in the northern end of the Barossa Valley. The blend is largely from the Micken block which is a younger planting of cuttings sourced from iconic old vine vineyards. The block is situated on small red loan rise that is of extremely high potential soil.

Winemaking

The grapes were fermented in small batches and after fermentation was matured in 50% new French oak for 20 months prior to bottling. Minimal intervention is used in the winemaking process and the wine is moved the minimal times prior to bottling and is not cold stabilised or filtered.

Tasting Note

The colour is rich and deep with purple hue. The flavours are concentrated but with a finesse and poise and associate with the Northern Barossa. The nose is of classic blueberry and savoury oak aromas. The palate has abundant berry fruit supported by a tight tannin structure that pulls the wine together to give it persistence.
