Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Rich and spicy, offering a heady mix of smoky tobacco and bittersweet chocolate character against dark plum, cherry and raspberry flavors. Silky smooth in texture, with plenty of heft underneath the soft surface and a freshness that suggests this has years to go.--Australian reds blind retrospective.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Offers a compelling, unusual mix of Christmas spice, Worcestershire sauce, tawny Port, meat and pepper on the nose. Bright acids and chewy tannins characterize the palate, which offers juicy, meaty flavors but not the full-throttle, over-the-top lushness that characterizes some other vintages. Finishes long, with dust and bacon notes.

Barossa Valley Estate Winery Image

Barossa Valley Estate wines are a contemporary expression of the wines that made the Barossa Valley great. They capture the distinctive elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavours of one of the world's most celebrated wine regions.

Small in size, the Barossa Valley is regarded as one of the most significant red wine regions on earth. Its unique ancient friable red clay loam soils and warm climate combine to create wines of extraordinary varietal character.

Located in the heart of the Barossa Valley, Barossa Valley Estate focuses exclusively on premium red wines from the Barossa Valley. Barossa Valley Estate produces a range that represents the wine styles that made the Barossa great – Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and GSM.

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 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 featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. 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 Blends of Southern Rhône, 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.”
