About The Wine

Barossa Valley Shiraz is one of life's greatest pleasures. The region is home to some of Australia's biggest, boldest and best reds, thanks to (usually) stellar climatic conditions that can produce ultra-ripe grapes with complex flavours. Roennfeldt Vineyard in Marananga is the source of grapes for several premium wines, with vines aged between around 50 and 80 years old.

The Eisenstone Roennfeldt Vineyard Marananga Shiraz is a deeply coloured and intense wine, with dark fruits, spice and chocolate. There is tremendous weight on the palate yet with a silky texture and incredible structure, which can help this wine to age for many years, if you can wait that long.

About Eisenstone

Shiraz, the whole Shiraz, and nothing but Shiraz.

Eisenstone have made it quite clear that they have only one focus, and that is showcasing the breadth and depth of sub-regionality in the Barossa, for its flagship varietal, you guessed it… Shiraz.

Winemaker and founder Stephen Cook sources fruit with the aim to produce wines of depth with exceptional ageing potential.

Small-batch focused, no more that 800 bottles are produced for each individual cuvee.

Winemaking

The colour is deep and intense. Maranaga wines are kown for their forest berry fruit characters and this wine is no exception. Ample tannins to provide structure and longivity.

The Real Review

"Deep, dark, opaque and very youthful in the glass. Aromas are all in the dark zone: plums, berries, chocolate, with a touch of Christmas pudding spice thrown in for good measure, plus a little touch of graphite lift. It has a powerful palate—there's a punch of dark, plum and mulberry fruit, there's also a good lick of oak at play and there's a real richness and density of flavour. The flavours are full throttle, but there is structure and an inherent balance to the wine. The archetypal 'iron fist in the velvet glove'." - Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
