Eden Road Wines wine producer

Eden Road Wines
A boutique winery that’s nevertheless one of the biggest names in the Canberra District wine region of New South Wales.  When industry giant Hardy’s pulled out of the District in 2007, they left a legacy of grapegrowers, winemakers and facilities built up over the previous decade.  Newly-formed Eden Road moved into the abandoned Kamberra winery, sharing the space with several other small producers.
 
At first Eden Road had no vineyards of their own, sourcing their fruit from growers who had previously supplied Hardy’s.  Nevertheless, with their very first 2008 vintage of The Long Road Shiraz they won the 2009 Jimmy Watson Trophy, Australia’s most famous red wine award.  Soon outgrowing their corner of Kamberra, in 2011 they bought the Moran winery up the road in Murrumbateman along with its famous Doonkuna vineyard, one of the oldest in the region.
 
Winemaker Nick Spencer joined in 2008 and now runs the show, crafting cool-climate reds from Shiraz and Pinot Noir, whites from Riesling and Chardonnay and an unusual skin contact rosé from Pinot Gris.  Fruit comes from the estate vineyard and from nearby high-altitude vineyards in Tumbarumba and Gundagai.
