Winemaker Notes

A blend of 46% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache, 17% Tempranillo and 2% Carignane.

Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. Shiraz delivers fruit depth and structure, combining beautifully with the aromatics and spiciness of Grenache. Mourvèdre adds wild earthy notes to the blend and the firm, savoury character of Tempranillo melds together with the black cherry character of Carignan, to surround and soften the palate of this multi-dimensional wine. This wine perfectly complements a wide variety of game, Mediterranean influenced dishes and spicy Indian curries.

The color is a beautiful black cherry with aromas of dark plum, chocolate and savory black olive. The palate is a soft mouthfull of forest fruits with wild bramble undertones and a fine stylish finish. A quintet of a blend in perfect harmony!

Wine Spectator
Polished, focused and distinctive for the spice and tobacco accents to the supple core of red berry and cherry flavors, lingering easily on the generous finish. Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Tempranillo and Carignane. Drink now through 2015.

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.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
