Eden Valley
The Eden Valley is actually a sub-district of the Barossa, located in the southeastern quadrant and differentiated by being located in rolling hills up to 1,600 feet in elevation as opposed to the baking valley floor. The Eden is a cooler sub-region with vineyards situated high on exposed hillsides. The wines here tend to show a bit more elegance and finesse due to the longer growing season.

Indeed, like the Clare Valley to the north, parts of the Eden Valley are capable of producing concentrated, age-worthy, bone dry Rieslings, and this has become a bit of a specialty. The region also houses a number of historic and iconic Shiraz vineyards, the most prominent being Henschke's Hill of Grace. (Wine/Appellations)
