    “Love is an emotion that can be felt for an eternity. Gold is just material.”

    Barr-Eden Estate is a storied piece of land situated at the crest of Mengler’s Hill, one of the highest points of viticulture in Australia. Well-known grape-grower Joel Mattschoss first acquired fruit from the site, which sits atop the ancient goldfields of the Eden, in 2014, to produce the first small batch Love Over Gold wine with Frenchman Pierre-Henri Morel. After the passing of the estate’s owner, Barossa icon, Bob McLean, in 2015, a venture began between the two, along with friends Michael Twelftree and Tim Hower, to become the new custodians of this special property of great pedigree.

Press Review

    Barr-Eden Estate Avenue to Gold Shiraz 2017

    The second label, the 2017 Avenue to Gold Shiraz, shows some floral, talcum-powder-like notes on the nose, alongside ripe boysenberries. It's full-bodied, creamy and supple but underscored by tangy acids and balanced by savory undertones of black olives and espresso. It should drink well for a decade, perhaps longer.
