Located in Murrumbateman in the Canberra Wine District, boutique winery Eden Road was established in 2008 by businessman Chris Coffman. It made an immediate and stunning impact by winning Australia’s most prized wine accolade, the ‘Jimmy Watson Award’ for its first vintage of The Long Road Shiraz (2008). These elegant and refined wines are produced from some of Australia’s highest vineyards in the emerging ‘High Country’ region. The unique combination of altitude and some of the world’s oldest soils, which were formed over 400 million years ago, has resulted in a highly prized collection of original and exciting wines. Winemaker Celine Rousseau has devoted 17 years to working in this area and has developed a strong understanding and passion for these cool climate vineyards and their wines.
This is a cool-climate Shiraz with soft elegant notes of ripe forest fruits which are set against the typical peppery spice. Following fermentation, the wine was matured in 500 litre old French barrels for 12 months before bottling without using pumps. This wine regularly comes in at under 13% alcohol, showing its true cool climate origins. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
