    Winemaker Notes

    "Ebenezer is from the same winery that makes E&E Black Pepper, just a step down in quality and, thankfully, price. In a ripe vintage such as 2000, it's deep, dense and richly complex, a powerful red, with cherry, blackberry, cedar and spice flavors, with an added layer of mineral and earth that extends into the long, remarkably open-textured finish. Best from 2006 through 2015. From Australia."

    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

    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.

    Syrah/Shiraz

    View all wine

    Marked by 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.

    In the Glass

    Syrah typically shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper 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 Pairings

    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 Secret

    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.
