Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is taken from twenty seven of our grower partners from the Barossa Valley Floor with 16% from our own vineyards in Marananga. 16% was also taken from the Northern Barossa where we source our award winning E&E Black Pepper Shiraz. After fermentation 45% of this wine was aged six months in equal portions of French and American oak. The oak selection has added complexity and flavour with 24% aged in new oak barrels, 10% in one year old barrels, 30% in two year old barrels and 36% in three to four year old barrels.

Deep red in colour with purple hues, this wine exhibits rich Shiraz aromas of cherries, plums, spices, and black pepper along with some beautifully integrated oak sweetness and spice.

Enjoy with lamb shanks, spicy eastern cuisine or rich pasta dishes.

About Barossa Valley Estate:

Everything beautiful comes from the heart and Barossa Valley Estate is in the heart of Barossa Valley - a small, beautiful place tucked on the southern edge of the great Australian continent. They started making wine there in 1985, and although they have won much praise and accolades along the way, they can be regarded as a relative newcomer.

Barossa Valley Estate respects and celebrates the rich history of the Barossa Valley, and are proud to be a part of it, but it is the future where they thrive. Barossa Valley Estate captures the heritage of the Barossa Valley and bring it to today. They take all that has been learned and have created exciting wines from the Barossa Valley - wines capturing the distinctive elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavors of this special place.

Barossa Valley Estate makes only red wines. In fact they only make Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre, because if history has taught us anything, these are the Barossa Valley’s greatest wines.
