Eisenstone SV902 Hoffmann Vineyard Ebenezer Shiraz 2019
Just a mention of the Hoffman vineyard in Ebenezer is enough to make many Barossa fans get a little excited. Fruit from this vineyard is taken by Rockford and Chris Ringland to name a few so it is very highly regarded. Compared to the SR802 Ebenezer Shiraz from the same vintage this wine has much more to it in fruit complexity, structure and power and needs a little time to come around.
Great colour and there is a real Basket Press kind of vibe here with its savoury fruit style thanks to spicy, baked earth and oak aromas sitting over ripe blackberry fruit. It then comes together beautifully on the palate with excellent concentration of sweet fruit but still retains its savoury feel thanks to red earthy tones. Fruit is long, pure and balanced providing superb drinkability over the next decade and more.
