The Barossa Valley is a store of old vines coupled with an extended number of grape varieties
that produce ripe, fruity, modern wines.
The traditional mix from the Southern Rhone excels in the Barossa Valley – the home in Australia
of old bush-vine Grenache and Mourvèdre. Handpicked before being transported to the
winery in shallow trays, the grapes are double-sorted before vinification. The wine is aged for
a year in French and American oak barrels.
"The 2006 Envoy GSM is composed of 50% Grenache, 30% Shiraz, and 20% Mourvedre. Dark ruby-colored, it delivers a fragrant perfume of earth notes, mineral, wild cherry, and blueberry. Smooth textured, savory, and concentrated, this tasty wine will blossom with another 2-3 years of cellaring and offer prime drinking from 2010 to 2018. The Colonial Estate is the Australian project of Englishman and Bordeaux chateau owner Jonathan Maltus. His first vintage in Australia was 2002. The entry level wines are line-priced at $30 offering excellent bang for the buck.
The Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby. Red and dark berries on the nose, with exotic floral and incense qualities adding complexity and lift. Medium-bodied raspberry and blackberry flavors are energetic and strikingly precise, with dusty minerality adding grip to the back end. Clean, racy and focused, with very good finishing lift and cut."
International Wine Cellar
"The shiraz component adds some structure to the blend, but the flavours are essentially driven by the grenache. All of these wines have elements of Southern Rhône."
