James Halliday – Mountadam High Eden vineyard at 550m altitude. Aged 18 months in 40% new French oak barriques. Mountadam clearly distinguishes its 3 tiers, with its estate level offering impressive detail, refinement and affordability. The signature of this cool, high site is articulated impeccably here, a beautiful expression of red fruits and pepper with the gentle support of dark chocolate oak. Bright, natural acidity and fine-grained tannins are impressively composed, balanced from the outset, yet will endure." Tyson Stelzer - Halliday Wine Companion

Barossa Valley Wine
The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.
A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.
Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
