    “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 Shiraz 2014

    Love Over Gold's debut release is the 2014 Shiraz, sourced from old vines, hand destemmed (except for the 10% whole clusters) and aged in a single two-year-old puncheon. Yes, quantities are that small (50 cases), so if this wine sounds like your jam, get after it. It's restrained on the nose, with hints of pencil shavings and dried thyme framing raspberry and boysenberry fruit, then seems to expand on the medium-bodied palate, where it offers ample intensity without excess weight. Those fruit flavors are backed by supple, silky tannins and plenty of length and concentration on the finish, where the wine picks up savory overtones of black olive and espresso.
