Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Lively red with a slight purple hue.

Bouquet: The bouquet displays sweet minted oak aromas integrated with peppery Barossa Shiraz fruit characteristics.

Palate: The palate is dominated by rich Barossa Shiraz fruit flavours. It is full-bodied with peppery mulberry and well-integrated vanilla spiciness. This wine has great length with a soft velvety finish.

Cellaring Potential: This wine will continue to mature and develop in the bottle for up to 10 years.

Serving Suggestions: The perfect match to old tasty cheddar from Milawa. It will also complement venison or a Port Lincoln scotch fillet.

My Notes:

About Barossa Valley Estate:

Barossa Valley Estate was established in 1985 by a group of Barossa Valley grape growers who saw an opportunity to add value to their harvest. The winery was initially established as a co-operative with the objective of making and marketing premium bottled wine. The grape growers and the winemaker have a very close relationship due to this structure and the synergy that has developed is evident in the richness and depth of flavors in the wine. Since its inception, Barossa Valley Estate has gone from strength to strength.

Today the portfolio of wines comprises E&E, Ebenezer and Moculta. Each of these ranges is unique and made to a particular style. The E&E Black Pepper Shiraz is the quintessential Barossa Shiraz - powerful and intense with rich fruit and firm tannins. This is a wine that will mature and develop in the bottle for well over a decade. The Ebenezer range showcases the range classic Barossa styles, with Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon blend forming the core of the range with the Sparkling Pinot Noir offering a great, full flavored Blanc de Noir. The Moculta range is designed as a more approachable wine upon release. The four wines in the range are all table wines and include Shiraz, Chardonnay, Semillon and Cabernet Merlot.
