Winemaker Notes

Layers is crafted to illustrate our belief that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Don't be fooled by this wine's easy drinking and approachable nature. The blend of three classic Barossa red varieties (Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre) and two new ones (Tempranillo, Carignan), create a multi-dimensional wine with beautiful aromas of dark plum, chocolate, and savory black olive while the palate is a soft mouthful of forest fruits with mild bramble undertones. It's a quintet of a blend in perfect harmony!

Blend: Shiraz 41%, Mourvèdre 20%, Tempranillo 19%, Grenache 17% and Carignane 3%

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 89
Wine & Spirits
Shiraz makes up 41 percent of this blend, accompanied by mourvedre, tempranillo, grenache and a small portion of carignane. It's rustic with scents of thyme and saddle leather, the mineral tannins guiding sweet strawberry fruit through the finish. For slow-smoked beef ribs.
WE 89
Wine Enthusiast
A gulpable blend of five varieties (Shiraz, Mouvedre, Tempranillo, Grenache and Carigan), this is a medium-bodied wine reminiscent of cherries and cedar. A bit of crispness on the finish accents the otherwise lush feel. Drink now.

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.
