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.

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.
