Winemaker 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.

Australian Wine Companion
Generous, medium- to full-bodied wine, with blackberry and plum fruit backed by good tannins and subtle oak; pretty nifty for a second label.

Barossa Valley Estate, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
2006 E Minor Shiraz
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.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

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 must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
