When it comes to Powell & Son’s large range of premium Shiraz, this is your best bang-for-buck bottling. It showcases the best from Eden and Barossa with a personality lacking in some of the more polished, oak-driven wines. Aromas are lifted, vegetal and spicy: green peppercorn amid red berry, cranberry, subtle spices and minerals. The palate is powerful but shows freshness and restraint. Tannins are fine and well integrated with the crunchy fruit and peppercorn spice. Drink now–2035. Editors’ Choice.
The Barossa & Eden Valleys Shiraz captures our philisophy at Powell & Son: to work with the strengths and individual characters of the Barossa and Eden Valleys. A 50/50 blend of Eden Valley Shiraz from 40+ year old vines and Barossa Valley Shiraz from 60+ year old vines, the fruit is fermented separately in concrete vats before spending 15 months in 4,500 litre French oak foudres.
