Pure Eden is a single site wine, made from an Eden Valley vineyard planted by Charles Angas in the 1890s. Later owned by the Shiltons 1911–1926; Meakins 1926-1929; Roeslers 1929-1961; Andretzkes 1961-2011 and now the Lindner family, this wine is a reward of these guardians’ efforts over a hundred years.
“Deep red/purple colour. The first aroma of toasty oak, and lots of it, the palate very rich and dense, fleshy and full-bodied. The tannins are abundant and very supple; the mid-palate flooded with chocolate, fruitcake, raspberry and mocha flavours together with graphite, tar and Rhône-like spices. A riotously opulent shiraz and very Eden Valley” – 98 Points Huon Hooke
