(South Australia) Situated within the Barossa zone of South Australia, the Eden Valley region derives its name from the small town of the same name – known as the Garden of Grapes and Gums. The Eden Valley region is as large as the Barossa Valley, however the best grape growing locations are to be found on the slopes at elevations between 1200 and 1640ft with good exposure to sunlight. As with the Clare Valley region, Eden Valley is renowned for the production of premium Riesling-based wines which display exotic citrus and floral characters when young, developing more complex toasty notes as they mature. Shiraz is an important red grape variety for the region which display black fruit and sweet spice aromas with smooth, ripe tannins. Other important grape varieties grown in Eden Valley are Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
