Sourced from 48 to 103 year-old vines, some of which was Grange material, and it's a stunner. The Eduard Shiraz is in tribute to Eduard Kalleske and his wife Anna 'Rosina' who worked the Kalleske vineyard until the 1880s.
A combination of three select vineyards the Eduard was sourced from vines planted between 1905 and 1960. Vines are dry grown. Matured in new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for a period of two years and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Eduard Shiraz is deep black-purple in colour. It is an intense wine with abundant aromas of blackberry compote, vanilla bean, tiramisu, dark chocolate and a hint of tar. The palate is full-bodied with an alluring density. This is a very complex wine with harmonized tannins, inky black fruit and subtle oak blending together to give great texture, multiple layers and a sturdy structure. An extremely lengthy pure finish completes this solid Shiraz. Eduard is a sophisticated wine of the highest calibre and is worthy of cellaring for many years.
