    “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 Love Over Gold Grenache 2019
    Medium crimson. Intense musky plum, panforte, strawberry glacé aromas. Smooth ripe and expressive with plentiful pure strawberry, musky plum, dried apricot fruits, fine slinky textures, superb mid-palate viscosity and a linear thread of aniseed. Finishes dry and fruity with a kick of alcohol and acidity. A beautiful grenache at the pointy end of ripeness. Generous, ripe, fresh and expressive. I can smell the heat and dust. From the highest altitude grenache plantings in South Australia. Exceptional drinking but best to enjoy the primary fruit expression. 15.2% alc Drink now – keep for a while Diam cork

    Barr-Eden Estate Love Over Gold Grenache 2019
    A new addition to the range, the 2019 Love Over Gold Grenache was produced in extremely limited quantities (one barrique, 25 cases) from vines planted in 1997 at 525 meters above sea level— believed to be some of the highest Grenache vines in South Australia. It's a cloudy medium-ruby hue in the glass, with e"usive aromas of strawberries, thyme, bay leaf and raspberries—a juicy, mouthwatering bookend of red berries. Despite weighing in at more than 15% alcohol, it comes across as medium-bodied and almost lacy in texture, !nishing taut and wiry yet seductive and generous, the sort of paradoxical juxtaposition that's especially intriguing. As this is the !rst vintage, I've been conservative with the drinking window (2021 - 2030), but it could surprise and drink well beyond that.
