A relative new comer to the Barossa wine scene, long time Barossa enthusiasts Trevor and Marilyn Hatch purchased an established vineyard in Eden Valley’s Keyneton region in 2007. The long time Sunshine Coast residents made many visits to the Barossa Valley over the years and fell in love with the wines so much so that they purchased the historic Tanunda Cellars bottle shop in the late 1990’s. Trevor also became involved in wholesale and retail sales of Barossa wines in Queensland. With a farming background in avocado and persimmon Trevor decided to combine this with his experience and knowledge of the wine industry and purchased a vineyard to produce his own wine. The property, a working vineyard for well over a century boasts what is believed to be some of the oldest Riesling vines in Australia - planted back in 1896. The Shiraz vines planted in in the 1930’s and 1950’s  have previously supplied fruit that has gone into making Yalumba’s flagship Octavius Shiraz.

Resistance will prove futile to this plush, seductively rich and complex Eden Valley Shiraz.

The Zip Line Shiraz fruit comes from a mixture of vines planted in 1927, the mid 1980’s and some younger vines planted in 2008. Dense inky black heart with a deep dark red black hue. Captivating the olfactory senses are dark plum, liquorice and fennel aromas which are complimented by vanillin cedar, dried herb, hints of mocha and spice. Rich, concentrated and silky textured the medium to full bodied palate is saturated with cascading waves of dark plum and liquorice fruit. Notions of vanillin cedar, fennel and peppered dried herbs lend further interest. Boasting outstanding power, its plush and opulent, has cashmere like tannins and finishes long, sleek and lavish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
