    “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 2016
    There is a single puncheon (50 cases) of the 2016 Love Over Gold Shiraz, selected from the best parcels of the vineyard and 90% hand-destemmed, with the balance included as whole bunches. Like previous vintages, it shows remarkable density and complexity, a creamy, full-bodied feel on the palate and a long, vibrant !nish. No doubt every lucky person who tastes it will !nd their own descriptors for the myriad aromas and #avors, but to me, it delivers a potpourri of resinous-herbal nuances (thyme, rosemary, lavender), blueberry and boysenberry fruit and hints of mocha, black olive and licorice. Smooth and supple, yet possessing ample tannin and structure, it should drink well for two decades, possibly even longer.
