About the Wine

The Lane Vineyard aims to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their Adelaide Hills vineyard. The Block 14 Basket Press Shiraz is one of their most celebrated wines.

The block sits atop a 450m rise high into the Hills. The traditional basket press technique helps to delicately extract all the flavour and character of the fruit with a gentle touch. It’s a suave, sexy Shiraz, truth be told. The most recent reincarnation, the 2015 vintage, is a classic vintage of this wine.

It offers supremely classy drinking, a long term cellaring prospect and affordability, all in one bottle. If you love the cooler climate Shiraz movement in Aus, this is a benchmark wine you need to try.

Their philosophy is to craft premium single vineyard wines that combine the finesse of Europe, the flavour of Australia and the unique characteristics of their vineyard.

Chardonnay and Shiraz are what the Edwards family do best, but Bordeaux varieties - red and white - perform strongly also.  With a gorgeous cellar door and restaurant The Lane is well worth a visit, and with their ever-improving range of premium wines they are truly a star Hills producer.

Huon Hooke

"Great Colour: deep purple/red. A rich, meaty spicy scented wine with velvet soft texture. It has a superb combination of spice and richer fruit characters. Lively acidity refreshes the finish. Good balance. Fine wine." - Huon Hooke (huonhooke.com)

Aus & NZ Wines of the Year

"Pepper, game, blueberries and black plums define a savoury and complex shiraz that captures the cool climate elegance of its high vineyard with depth and character. A long and full finish is accurately directed by firm, fine tannins." - Tyson Stelzer (Tyson Stelzer's Australian and New Zealand Wines of the Year 2017)

91Points
The Wine Front

"Smooth, blue and black cherry fruit, sweet spice and vanilla oak. Medium bodied, supple and spicy, sits a bit flat on the palate, but delivers a sophisticated mouthful of Shiraz with a savoury coffee-laced aftertaste of satisfying length." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
