Wine Front – 94+ Edenflo Quincy J 2020

By |2020-09-15T03:18:46+00:00September 15th, 2020|Reviews|

Eden Valley gewurztraminer, riesling, viognier, through the quixotic and creative mind of Andrew Wardlaw, a deeply thoughtful winemaker and general all-round good guy. Everything very hands-on in winery, though no additions/manipulation, aside the decisions to skin ferment grapes and bottle unfined-unfiltered. A very complex, deeply flavoured and intense white wine. [...]

Wine Front – 93 Points Edenflo Candy Lane 2020

By |2020-09-15T03:17:32+00:00September 15th, 2020|Reviews|

The Edenflo cuvee names have a kind of semblance to the wine, though they kind of underplay their complexity and seriousness too. This one is grenache, pinot noir, gewurztraminer, viognier, at the rate of 50:20:15:5 – intrigue! Light and fresh, jellied berries and candied citrus, loads of sweet, perky spice, [...]

Wine Front – 96 Points Edenflo Lemon Krush 2020

By |2020-09-15T03:15:21+00:00September 15th, 2020|Reviews|

The cuvee name ‘Lemon Krush’ diminishes how serious and complex, intriguing and generally fantastic this wine is, but I love the name anyway. A blend of 80-year-old vine Maderia Semillion with chardonnay and viognier. Skin and stalk fermentation, blending, crafting, lo-fi winemaking, clever mind of Andrew Wardlaw winemaker, and you’ve [...]

Wines to Watch – Gourmet Traveler

By |2019-11-26T04:36:05+00:00November 26th, 2019|Reviews|

Well before minimal intervention became a catch-cry, Andrew Wardlaw had dropped the additives and turned down the winemaking influence in his wines. Wardlaw is a smart, determined winemaker with an edginess, reflected in what he makes. His father was a winemaker and he was raised in the Barossa Valley. His [...]

Edenflo Old Vine Syrah Cabernet 2019 – 94 Points – Winefront

By |2019-11-26T04:36:31+00:00November 26th, 2019|Reviews|

This is another winsome wine from Edenflo. The red wines of Edenflo have such an even flow, even when they come ribbed with tannin as this one does. It tastes and feels like grapes in their natural environment, allowed to follow their own trail. This is fleshy, gently jubey, red [...]

Edenflo Eden Valley Syrah 2018 – 93 Points – Winefront

By |2019-11-26T04:36:21+00:00November 26th, 2019|Reviews|

A wine producer of great character and quality often overlooked or set amongst the shadows, it’s great to see the wines gaining ground in The Big Cities of Australia – organic farming underpins things, low intervention winemaking follows. Catch winemaker enquiries via – Andrew Wardlaw edenflo6@gmail.com  This is a wonderful thing [...]

Edenflo Old Vine Syrah 2017 – 93 Points – Winefront

By |2019-11-26T04:35:21+00:00November 25th, 2019|Reviews|

Eden Valley, gravity flow, Edenflo. Andrew Wardlaw started making wine from the Eden Valley in 1996 when he was just 21 – plucking berries from their bunches in his living room, fermenting them in the laundry with some help from an electric blanket – and while a good deal has [...]

Edenflo Eden Valley Syrah 2017 – 93 Points – Winefront

By |2019-11-26T04:35:13+00:00November 25th, 2019|Reviews|

New producer for me from an affable (via email) chap/winemaker, Andrew Wardlaw. I don’t know a lot about the wine, so had to revert simply to the glass in front of me. It is naturally fermented and ‘minimal intervention’, by Andrew’s description. Andrew will swing up Sydney-way, later in the [...]

Edenflo Riesling Gewurztraminer 2017 – 91 Points – Winefront

By |2019-11-26T04:35:29+00:00November 22nd, 2019|Reviews|

Eden valley blend of riesling (67%) and gewürztraminer. 60 dozen only. Some skin contact, basket pressed, gravity racked, fermented naturally and matured in 4-year-old oak. Gewurztrainer vines (at Springton East) are 20 years old; riesling vines (Springton North) are 80 years old. Tart, textural, tasty and tense. This tastes of [...]
