And with access to a superb range of vineyards and a state of the art winery, they are in the perfect position to do just that.
"Winner: Best New Winery. Canberra is an exciting region at the moment, and there are many new players hitting unthinkable heights of quality. Winemaker Nick Spencer has demonstrated - across a whole range of styles and prices - that Eden Road Wines is a force to be reckoned with.”- Nick Stock, The Age/SMH Good Wine Guide 2011
Tasting notes: Delightfully lifted nose, showing white peach, lemon curd and brioche aromas. The palate is subtle, mineral and crisp with a perfect acidity.
The vanilla oak flavours from barrel fermentation in French barriques (20% new) are subtle and perfectly integrated. The finish is long and fresh.
Winemaking: Whole bunch-pressed directly to a selection of French oak barriques. The alcoholic fermentation was carried out with a selected yeast. Only 10% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. This wine was then aged for 10 months in barrels on full lees. It was then fined, cold stabilised and sterile filtered before bottling.
- Love it Review by James
- Liked the 2011 version of this wine and think the 2012 is event better; very lean and a racy style. Gary Walsh's review comparing it to Chablis is spot on. (Posted on 7/16/2013)
