Mountadam Vineyards, Eden Valley Shiraz 2018

(2022) Caitlin Brown is the winemaker for this estate, which the Brown family took over in 2005, the estate having been established by David Wynn in the 1960s, a pioneer of the elevated High Eden region of the Barossa. At 550m above sea level, Mountadam is the highest estate in South Australia with harvest up to a month later than in the lower Eden and Barossa Valleys. What an absolutely delightful wine this is - especially at £10 a bottle - with its pummeled mulberry, sweet, sweet fleshy dark fruit, crack of fresh black pepper and fleeting highlights of violet. The palate has that same glorious sweet fruit abundance with some cocoa supporting, and seamless tannin and acid integration. Watch the video for more information.
