Eden Valley was once heavily forested with eucalypt. Pockets remain with some majestic trees, providing a reminder of what the landscape must have looked like before clearing. ‘Cool Woods’ image of trees is a true representation of the view from our cellar door, on a typically crisp and foggy winter morning. The Cool Woods white range is sourced from not only our Eden Valley Vineyard, but other cool climate South Australian regions. The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are produced with a combination of fruit from our Barossa Vineyard and other South Australian regions. The wines display great varietal character, are well balanced and made to enjoy with friends, family and food.
Crushed, de-stemmed and then pressed using a membrane press. The ferment was kept slow and cool to retain all the natural flavours and aromatic qualities. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a cool temperature to retain all the natural flavours and aromatic qualities. The wine was blended, clarified, filtered and then bottled soon afterwards so the wine was a true expression of the grape/terroir from which it was made.
The wine has a pale yellow colour. The wine has dominant peach aromas with a hint of pineapple juice on the nose. The palate has intense peach and pineapple characters. The mid palate is soft and creamy.
