Winemaker Notes

"Barossa's cooperative sets aside its best old vineyards for their high-end wine, and it's almost always among the best in Australia. This one is typically dense, dark and powerful, a mighty mouthful of black pepper–scented black cherry, stewed plum and licorice flavors that echo beautifully on the long, fine-grained finish."
-Wine Spectator

Opaque red-purple. Abundance of lifted ripe red and black berries, vanillin, spices and pepper.Palate: Firm structure, exceptional length with firm, fine grained tannin aiding a rich mouthfeel. Fully ripe berry flavours abound. Quite complex and very well integrated oak showing.

Cellaring Potential: 7-10 years. Serving Suggestions: Strongly flavoured cheeses, Kangaroo, Wild boar, Buffalo or Venison.

Barossa Valley Estate, Australia
Image of winery

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.

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 accounts for a good deal of some of the most intense, powerful and age-worthy reds in the world. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah still achieves some of its maximum potential here, especially from Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie.

Syrah also plays an important component in the canonical Southern Rhône blends based on Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, adding color, depth, complexity and structure to the mix. Today these blends have become well-appreciated from key appellations of the New World, namely Australia, California and increasingly, with praise, from Washington.

Tasting Notes for Syrah

Syrah is a dry, red wine that typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice and even bacon, smoke or black olive. In Australia, where it goes under the name Shiraz, it produces deep, dark, intense and often, jammy reds. While Northern Rhône examples are typically less fruity and more earthy, California appears increasingly capable of either style.

Perfect Food Pairings for Syrah

Flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb, grilled meats, spareribs and hard, aged cheeses are perfect with Syrah. Blue cheeses are perfect with a dense and fruit-driven Australian Shiraz.

Sommelier Secrets for Syrah

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” winemakers throughout the world have adopted this synonym for Syrah when they have produced a plush and fruit forward wine made in the Australian style. As an aside, Australians are also fond of tempering their fruit-forward Shiraz by blending with Cabernet Sauvignon, which adds depth and structure.
