Mountadam Vineyards

Patriarch Shiraz honours Mountadam’s founder and one of Australia’s great visionaries, David Wynn.  This wine is off the oldest Shiraz plantings on our Eastern vineyard in High Eden.  Perched at an altitude of 500m on a unique east facing ledge overlooking the Eden Valley.

Selected parcels of grapes from the best sites of the vineyard are individually fermented and matured separately for 20-24 months in French barriques, the best barrels blended and held in bottle for another year before release. This is a compelling wine, its quality coming through the bouquet and perfectly balanced and long medium-bodied palate. Dark berry fruits, cedary oak and supple tannins all contribute, but fruit is by some distance the most important.

A cool, dry continental climate with soils of low fertility (over 500 million years old) is a forbidding site to grow grapes.  It does however, provide the opportunity to produce special wines of great concentration and elegance.

An estate-grown blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot separately fermented and matured in French barriques for 20-24 months, a barrel selection blended and bottle-aged for 12 months before release. The extra elevation of High Eden makes the difference for an attractive, supple and well balanced wine that glides on titanium castors and its cassis fruit and black olive a background whisper.

From the oldest plantings on the estate, fermented in French oak, matured for 12-14 months before a barrel selection for this wine, which is one of the best produced ex the Eden Valley as a whole. It has fluid grace and effortless power, the fruit flavours at the midpoint of the stone fruit (white peach)/citrus (grapefruit) spectrum. Lovely wine.
