POWELL AND SON Loechel Shiraz, Eden Valley 2016

<p>Powell & Son Loechel Eden Valley Shiraz</p> <p>Powell & Son (first vintage 2014) is the venture of Barossa Valley legend Dave Powell and his son Callum. The Loechel Shiraz is sourced from a single vineyard at the southern tip of the Eden Valley township, above the Barossa Valley. It was planted in the early 1970s on granitic loam, at 400m.</p> <p>The vineyard has an easterly aspect and is steeply sloping, with excellent drainage and low yields, resulting in concentrated fruit and a rich, complex wine. The vineyard is picked in three passes and components are kept separate throughout vinification. Only about one-third makes it into the Loechel Shiraz.</p> <p>The wine typically shows generous dark ripe fruits -- blackberry, cherry liqueur and cassis -- supported by dark chocolate and mocha notes and subtle herbs and spice. The palate adds smoky, savoury and meaty notes and is medium to full-bodied, yet concentrated, so as to provide long and satisfying flavours and a long, persistent, structured finish.</p>

Region Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is a cool and elevated sub-region of the Barossa situated in the Barossa Range to the east, overlooking the Barossa Valley. Low water availabilty, high altitude and strong winds make site selection in the region very important . The vineyeard soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock and are comprised mostly of red clay and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The Eden Valley is renowned for its floral talc scented Rieslings and vibrant fruit pure Shiraz. Cool climate Chardonnay also performs well as does Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
