Six Origins - Peter Schell High Eden Barossa Shiraz 2018
Country of Origin
Six Origins by Artisans of Barossa features six Shiraz wines from the outstanding 2018 vintage, each from a different vineyard, each produced by a different artisan winemaker.
Pete Schell selected a parcel of Shiraz from a vineyard at High Eden as Spinifex’s contribution to the first release of Six Origins.
High Eden is an area of approximately 40 square kilometres defined by its high altitude of 400 - 600 meters above sea level. This Shiraz is sourced from a dry grown 20 year old vineyard at High Eden just below 500 meters above sea level. It’s an easterly facing block, with the east-west vine rows adding further protection for the fruit from the heat of the western sun. On the nose there is savoury spice, and dark brambly fruits which flow to a palate of peppery spices and blue and black berry fruits - it’s cool and elegant in feel – without the overt sweetness inherent in Shiraz from warmer, lower parts of Barossa. It’s what you should expect from High Eden Shiraz, mid weight with good strong tannins, firm, fresh and athletic.
