2012 Canberra Shiraz
Matthew Jukes, Canberra District Tastings 2013
"There is an insane pepper component in this wine which drives me wild. The fruit is attractive, slim and juicy giving this wine a weightless appeal on the mid-palate. It’s like drinking Crozes-Hermitage after a makeover. Precocious, alluring and yet clearly a wine that will develop more in the bottle this is a tour de force from Eden Road."
Winsor Dobbin, Winsor's Choice"
Winemaker Nick Spencer has everything in place with gorgeous bright fruit, hints of pepper and spice, structure and balance. While this is drinking superbly already (it will be released in March), I suspect it will also cellar well, and it is extremely food friendly with a sensible 13% alcohol. This is a wine at the cutting edge of new-wave Australian shiraz. Lovely stuff."
