More Information

"Three granite based vineyards in the Eden Valley. 40% whole bunch. Cement ferment. Raised in a four year old foudre. Blackberry, liquorice, spice, some mint and flowers. Medium-bodied, meaty, bloody, plenty of scrub herb, blackcurrant, firm mineral/ironstone tannin – like the tannin here – dry and firm finish. An interesting and very savoury expression of Barossa Shiraz." 92pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront


Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
