Irvine Wines

Spanning over 400 acres, Irvine Wines’ foundations were laid with the first shiraz plantings by the Miles Family in 1867. Their family owned vineyards are carefully nurtured by fourth generation vigneron Peter Miles and his highly experienced team. Their dedication to crafting exceptional wines is mirrored by their deep heritage in the Barossa region. The region is home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz and Riesling vineyards and has long been associated with producing world-class expressions of these varieties. Irvine carefully select only the best fruit from each vineyard for their premium Barossa and Eden Valley varieties. An inherent understanding and respect for provenance together with an ongoing commitment to excellence will ensure the Irvine legacy endures.
Lovely pale gold in colour with aromas of pear, white peach and delicate floral notes. The palate is soft and elegant on entry continuing through to a long finish. A beautifully balanced wine with rich flavour and crisp, natural acidity.
Serve up with Thai fish cakes
Sourced from two separate vineyards on our Eden Valley holdings, the first block is one of Jim Irvine’s original plantings from 1997. High in altitude, but well protected from the elements, the well-drained sandy loam produces delicate and aromatic fruit. The second vineyard is just “down the hill” on the next-door Spring Gully site. The soil is slightly rockier and lower lying, adding a depth of flavour and complexity to the blend. Grapes and juice are handled gently, but oxidatively as a means of controlling any phenolic pickup and maximizing flavour. The juice is fermented on light solids predominantly in stainless steel, although a small component is barrel fermented in old oak to add depth and texture to the finished blend.
