Eden Road Wines from the Canberra district is “a force to be reckoned with”.
The Canberra district is home to some of Australia’s most exciting cool climate wineries and without a doubt Eden Road is proof of this. They recently purchased some of the oldest vineyard in the region on the volcanic granite soils made famous by their neighbour, Tim Kirk of Clonakilla. After only 2 vintages they have managed to win the coveted Jimmy Watson Trophy, receive Halliday’s 5 star winery rating and win ‘Best New Winery’ in the SMH/Age Good Wine Guide 2011.
They are nothing to do with the Eden Valley… this is about a vision, an ideal – their “road to the garden of Eden”, to create distinctive, clean and pure wines from cool climate Canberra district and high grown wines of NSW. The overall quality of their wines is exceptional for the price. Their “Seedling” range of wines are all about elegance and refined drinkability. Sourced from the cool climate vineyards of the Hilltops districts (around Young NSW) and Tumbarumba (at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains) coupled with fruit from the continental climate of the Canberra districts, winemaker Nick Spencer has produced wonderfully fresh, juicy wines that are hard to stop drinking! “… Eden Road is a force to be reckoned with.” Nick Stock, The SMH/Age Good Wine Guide 2011
