2018 Eisenstone Ebenezer Shiraz SR802 Barossa Valley – 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.
The Winery’s aim is to establish themselves as specialists of Barossa Valley shiraz, the icon variety of the Barossa Valley which is recognised worldwide. 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. Eisenstone creator and winemaker Stephen Cook 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 to make his wines released under the Eisenstone label. No more than 1600 bottles of each wine are produced in any given vintage, each individually numbered.
The grapes for this wine are grown in the Ebenezer sub-region of the Barossa Valley, known locally as ‘Grange’ country due to the quality of soils and general age of the vines.
The wine displays fresh wild berry, mulberries and other dark fruits. French oak integrates with the fruit and lend a savoury spice nuance without dominating. The wine is generous and opulent in its youth and this will continue to develop as it ages. As the wine matures the flavours will develop towards fruitcake, licorice, chocolate and mocha.
This wine will continue to mature until at least 2030.
