Winery Details

    “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 2018
    Dead set. Comes packaged in a varnished wooden box with a silver plate on top of it. And it looks for all the world like a coffin, or something you might put ashes in. And for some classic graveside humour there’s “Jack Lemmon in”, and Spike Milligan “Dúirt mé leat go raibh mé breoite” or “I told you I was ill”. “Aside that weirdness, here’s a review of the wine. The bottle weighs 1.5kg.

    Raspberry coulis, poached strawberry, rhubarb, sage and mint, gentle baking spice oak. It’s medium-bodied, plenty of squishy red fruits, a kiss of spicy oak,but kind of sweet, with supple tannin, and a mint and strawberry finish of good length. It’s a lovely wine, and very good, and kind of understated, in a positive way.
