2021 ZIP LINE SHIRAZ
CREATED TO BE ENJOYED

2021 ZIP LINE SHIRAZ

 

Our 2021 Zip Line Shiraz is created to be enjoyable upon release, and this year is no exception.

Seasonal conditions were favourable for Eden Valley Shiraz, creating a bright ruby-coloured wine showing ripe fruit and subtle floral aromatics.

Restrained use of oak allows the fruit to lead the way, with ripe red and black fruits happily filling the palate in an effortlessly luscious style.

The pure ripe plum and black fruits are instantly mouth-filling, with soft chocolate and vanilla notes all wrapped up in excellent tannin grip – and length for miles.

Not sure what to take to that dinner? This is the one!

2018 JACK HARRISON SHIRAZ

For the more discerning palate and appreciators of fine wines, we bring you our premium Jack Harrison Shiraz…

The colour of the 2018 Jack Harrison is the first indication of something special… inky black depths, with bright purple edges. The nose is a concentrated combination of darker cherry fruit, French oak spice and the characteristic cassis/star anise top notes. The palate is a massive mouthful of chewy black juicy fruit, wrapped around a weighty oak core, with an extended length that promises to develop into something of significant power and elegance. Impressive!   Drink to 2033  ~Jane Ferrari~

95 Points | Wine Orbit – Sam Kim
“Richly fruited and seductively fragrant, the bouquet shows blackberry, cake spice, cedar and dark chocolate characters. It’s equally satisfying in the mouth, delivering outstanding weight and richly textured mouthfeel, superbly complemented by refreshing acidity and layers of fine tannins. Sumptuous yet refined and sophisticated. At its best: now to 2033.”

2022 MACKENZIE WILLIAM 1896 RIESLING

Our 2022 Mackenzie William dry Riesling exhibits all the fresh aromatic citrus finery that Eden Valley Riesling is so well known for. Made from vines planted way back in 1896, believed to be the oldest Riesling vines in Australia.

“Distinctly aromatic bouquet with lovely lemon and lime characters and river pebble-like minerality. Good fleshy weight to the palate with lovely texture and pure citrus flavours.”  ~Winestate Magazine~

95 Points | Wine Orbit – Sam Kim

“This is exquisitely fine and delicately expressed on the nose, showing lime peel, lemon sorbet, white floral and wet limestone nuances, leading to a brilliantly focused palate offering outstanding concentration and fruit purity. Superbly structured by mouth-watering acidity, finishing impressively long and linear. At its best: 2027 to 2040.”

2020 CHARLI JAYE CHARDONNAY

Our Double Gold winning 2020 Charli Jaye Chardonnay is a new-world style delivering much-desired complexity, while maintaining an elegant structure.

Bright straw colours and aromatics of freshly cut pear with a hint of orange blossom give rise to much anticipated ripe stone fruit flavours, and a gentle dash of home-made marmalade.

Rather than stealing the show, our fine French oak finesse goes with the flow, maintaining structure and bringing soft spices into the fruit spectrum, creating a lusciously long finish.

“Good Complexity and structure. On the nose jasmine and quince peels. On the palate notes of Lemon , herbs , cream and vanilla. Long rich yet dry finish.” 

2018 HARE HUNTER PINOT NOIR

Although Pinot Noir is not typically grown in our region, we knew our cool climate vineyard could indeed produce a very special version of one of Trev’s favourite wines.

Our vineyard sits at an altitude of around 450-480m and for reference, Central Otago is around 300m.

Named after one of the grandsons’ favourite pastimes. With each year, their skill and allure intensify – much like this wine.

“Seductively styled and complex, showing dark berry, thyme, toasted almond and earthy mushroom aromas on the nose. The elegantly weighted palate delivers silky flow and rounded mouthfeel, beautifully complemented by savoury nuances, leading to a lengthy sstructured finish.”
