Eighty Acres are the world's first ever 100% carbon neutral range of wines, based upon an ISO 14044 compliant Life Cycle Assessment which accurately measures carbon dioxide emissions at every step in the product lifestyle. A harvest of ripe Clare Valley Shiraz grapes is assembled and vinified alongside a percentage of Viognier, the aim is to produce the essential Rhône style, sweetly scented and engaging over a solid structure of supportive oak and refined, elegant tannins.
Eighty Acres is a splendid range of wines that are approachable upon release, accesssible to all, and refreshingly down to earth. Shiraz and Viognier is picked at night and early in the morning to retain the fresh varietal flavours. The berries are destemmed, the juices are pressed out to a mix of vinimatic and static fermenters. A warm, controlled co-fermentation of Viognier and Shiraz is carried out after inoculation by select yeast strains which can best highlight the varietal characters. The wine is filled to a selection of American oak barrels for malolactic and a term of maturation. Upon completion, all components are assembled and treated to minimal filtration prior to bottling. Alcohol 14.8%
TASTING NOTES
Medium deep red with purple hues. An intense aroma of lifted spice and dark blood plums along with subtle apricot. Underlying aromas of vanilla, and cherries dipped in dark chocolate add to the complexity. Eighty Acres is medium bodied and juicy in texture. It has a delicacy and displays sweet, concentrated fruit flavours of juicy plums and blackberry, along with subtle spicy apricot. Integrated and balanced with an enjoyable persistence to the finish.

More About Taylors Wines
Situated at the very heart of South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, Taylors has become one of Australia’s best loved and most trusted wineries
The tale of Taylors winemaking goes back a few years – three generations in fact, and all began with Bill Taylor Senior, and his love of a certain Bordeaux wine. Originally wine merchants in Sydney, a passion for wine was all part of being a Taylor, and in particular, for the famous French Clarets such as Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux’s Medoc region. It was this long held fascination for these wines which inspired the family’s foray into winemaking, and provides the inspiration and winemaking philosophy behind all Taylors winemaking today – to produce premium wines of exceptional and comparable quality in Australia.
