2018 Eden Valley Shiraz

Our label is a photo of a Phantom Shield used by the New Guinea Highland tribes. It’s an actual shield from the late 70s early 80s,  and it’s worth about $20,000 if you would like to purchase it.

So we thought we’d have a bit of fun with the label.  And obviously, we got the wine in a bit of a “Jungle” setting.

The Phantom was introduced to the Highlands of Papua New Guinea during World War II, by American troops, The Phantom, The Man Who Never Dies,  comics had a setting and subject matter that mirrored the country’s environment, setting them apart from the other superhero books available to the people there. The Phantom was of the Jungle, and spiritual like the people of the Highlands.

The war shield was the most important weapon in the PNG Highland warrior’s arsenal. Cut from tree trunks and painted with brilliant colours, these shields not only served as protection, but as a form of self-expression. The Phantom was chosen because of his unmatched combat skills and his connection to his ancestors, who each passed the Phantom’s legacy down through the generations.

2018 Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Description

Deep crimson in colour, with vibrant black-olives, spiced-cedar, cloves and fresh blackcurrant aromas. A refined and focused palate, displaying complex brooding characters, with a rounded and fleshy mid-palate. A wine with lovely structural tannins, which will mature gracefully for many years to come.

On the palate, it’s full of berry flavours, very soft tannins and acid. It’s easy drinking yet complex.


This wine is from the vintage’s best Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and in 2018 was produced from predominantly the Dawkins vineyard which lies east of the Eden Valley township. The fruit was handpicked and 100% de-stemmed into an open top fermenter, where it remained for 18 days. Naturally fermented and hand plunged daily then pressed to a mix of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads for maturation. Matured in barrel for 20 months with no racking, before being clarified and bottled without filtration.
