Bobar 2022 Eden


Unsulphured, unfiltered light-medium bodied red from vines planted in 1985 in Yarra Glen. This Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard is planted with the traditional local clone of SA125 on silt loam soils with a gentle easterly exposure. Beautiful mature vines on this fertile site capture the essence of our escarpment subregion; generosity and ease of character coupled with freshness and restraint. It is Bobar’s Eden.

A light and airy red, full of pomegranate, red currants, bay leaf and moist earth. The palate is fresh, fine grained and delicately structured. Pure and fresh sulphur-free red.


The Vintage

The 2020/21 season was a pleasure, the second cool season in a row. Great spring rain, enough sunshine and warmth for decent fruitset and crops followed by a mild summer with good rainfall throughout. The wines reflect this in their purity of fruit and balance of freshness and complexity.


Hand harvested, a small portion crushed with the remaining whole-bunches placed on top for a 12 day maceration. Pressed to 300L oak casks for the completion of ferments and maturation. It was blended in early summer and bottled early in 2022. As with all our zero-added SO2 wines there was a period of bottle maturation prior to release. This is an important component of our zero-SO2 winemaking process.
