    Winemaker Notes

    Vibrant ruby red with crimson and magenta hues. A compote of dark berries and satsuma plums supported with spicy liquorice, mocha, vanilla and black pepper accents. Then hints of boysenberry and strawberry all converge and take your senses on a journey. A polished and voluptuous wine with a soft, round flourish of dark fruit. The aromas are mirroredby the flavours on the palate with dark chocolate undertones and silky tannins in the background.

    Enjoy with sticky BBQ beef ribs or a spicy cinnamon and rhubarb bake.

    Barossa Valley Wine

    Barossa, Australia

    View all products

    Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

    The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds.

    While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

    Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

    Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
