    “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 2015

    Love Over Gold's second vintage is its 2015 Shiraz, hand-destemmed and aged in a single three-year-old puncheon from Sylvain. Hints of pencil shavings and dried herbs mark the huge cherry and blackberry fruit on the nose, then blend in savory notes of roasted meat, mocha and black olives on the full-bodied palate. It's lush and lithe, with fine-grained tannins that turn silky on the lengthy finish. Impressive!
