Our 2020 Miss Bronte Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is created to mature gracefully, yet is delightfully approachable upon release.

Fine French oak aromas with a hint of sage add to the opening pleasure. Fresh ripe blackberry, currant and raspberry flavours with much-anticipated cassis are uninterrupted, as smooth dark chocolate melts into the overall richness on the palate.

Gorgeous soft mouthfeel, with fine long ripe tannins, are nurtured by the natural acidity to give a very elegant finish.

“Great structure and fruit. Beautiful hints of red fruit and eucalyptus notes. Complex nose with blackcurrant and complex note, on palate flavours are more ripe with a good amount of tannins.”

Food Pairing: Slow braised lamb shanks, actually lamb is definitely the top pick for this wine. And dessert… how about a cherry ripe?

2020 Vintage – Barossa / Eden Valley

As quoted by Barossa Wine “Barossa’s 2020 wines will again be sought out early by fans and collectors, with yields tracking below the 10-year average due to temperamental spring weather, and a hot, dry summer.”

Our whole region’s reduced yield is partly due to some interrupted flowering in spring, thanks to some very cold nights and strong winds, followed by extremely hot, dry summer conditions. As in previous years, we focused our attentions on maintaining soil moisture and irrigating before these heatwaves and we fared alright through the hot conditions.

In some areas of Eden Valley, vineyards were down 70-80% (mainly due to lack of water) and in a few cases some vineyards were not even picked at all.

Despite being down 45% on our own normal production levels, our quality is brilliant!

Long-time winemakers in the region are touting this as another high-quality Barossa vintage.

We’ve had one of the best starts to a new vintage (2021) for many years, with good rains through April and early May – things are looking good and all we need is some follow up rain with good run off to refill the dams a little. The weather experts are saying we’re in for a better than average winter with good rains for this part of Australia.
