Vineyards & Winemaking

VINEYARD SITE SELECTION

Glen Eldon Wines has vineyards located throughout the Barossa Floor and Eden Valley, each one selected for it’s micro-climate and distinctive flavour attributes for the final wine in mind.

 

With vineyards in Tanunda, Springton and North East of Mt Pleasant we have the ability to select only the best parcels of fruit for our winemaking. These vineyards all offer distinctive sub-regional characters.

 

The variation in soil, rainfall, row facing and pruning, combined with attention to detail in vineyard management, consistently produce premium fruit.

IN THE WINERY

Our winemaking philosophy is to highlight the regional characters to their greatest. We utilise modern winemaking knowledge for quality control; however, continue to ferment our reds in traditional open fermenters with heading down boards and pump over regularly for full flavour and colour extraction.

 

We use a mixture of French and American hogsheads for barrel maturation. Barrel maturation is dependent on each parcel, but generally carried out for 18 to 24 months.
