Chaffey Bros. Wine Co. Evangeline Syrah 2019

$35.00
A modern style of shiraz with ripe but not overripe fruit with high quality oak given just enough opportunity to make its point without dominating the argument. The fruit here is dense blues and blacks, with suggestions of vanilla and cedar. It is finished with beautifully fine, ripe tannins.

New kids on the block in a sense, Chaffey Bros also has a deep wine industry ancestry. Chaffey Bros was co-founded by Daniel Chaffey Hartwig, whose forebear, Bill Chaffey, founded Seaview Wines in McLaren Vale, and was himself a descendant of the Chaffey brothers who came to Australia to open the Riverina and Riverland agricultural regions through designing and implementing the original irrigation schemes. Daniel, born and raised in the Barossa Valley, picked grapes during school holidays, and later worked at Penfolds’ cellar door. Chaffey Bros. produce modern, fruit-forward wines, all of which carry a stamp of class.

Adjacent to the eastern edge of the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley is not actually a valley. Allegedly, early settlers found the word "Eden" scratched into a tree and named the town Eden Valley. What we do know is that it produces fantastic riesling and chardonnay, having a cooler, higher-altitude climate than the Barossa. Reds of great merit come from here as well, with producers like Henschke dazzling tasters worldwide. Soil is dry and sandy, laying across windswept hills. A bit of a challenge for growers, with vineyards scattered throughout the region to take advantage of winter rainfall and the cooler temperatures. Altitude is 400-600 metres above sea level, providing cool nights and long warm days for growing season. Perfect for thin-skinned whites like rieslings, which benefit from lots of sunshine and cooler nights, but are susceptible to mould if the ground is damp at harvest time.

History

The township was founded in 1864 by William Lillecrapp (no snickering back there!).
