Mountadam Vineyards High Eden range is the selection of the best parcels of fruit from the Estate. The ‘Patriarch’ has always been Mountadams flagship Shiraz, recognising the Patriarch and founder of Mountadam, David Wynn.
Harvested on 19th of April from blocks 33 and 14 from the Estates eastern vineyard at 14.3 ºBe. These Shiraz high trellis vines were planted in 1994 and 1996 with both easterly aspect sites yielding incredibly low, producing concentrated flavours but also beautiful minerality and finesse. The cool night temperatures of High Eden allow the grapes to retain natural acidity and fine structure.
The fruit was small batch fermented and matured in 100% new fine grain French oak barriques.
