Winemaker Notes

"The sumptuous 2002 Emigré is a proprietary blend of old vine Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Its inky/purple color is accompanied by aromas and flavors of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, and licorice. Although it has a fabulous texture as well as a massive palate, it is neither over the top nor hot (even though it boasts 15.5% natural alcohol). The tannin is melted, but high. While this 2002 is impossible to resist at present, it should age well for 10-12 years, possibly longer."
-Wine Advocate

The Barossa Valley is a source of disparate terroirs. For Émigré the inspiration has been to embrace this and produce a wine that represents the palette of the Barossa Valley - from Greenock in the western hills to the Eden Valley in the east, taking in the valley floor.

Émigré is sourced from the Colonial-owned vineyards and is made up of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre, Muscadelle, and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the vineyards comprising Grenache and Mourvedre surround the stone built winery.

The wine is the product of diligent viticulture. Spur-pruning, canopy management, green harvesting, and handpicking all come together to produce ripe, pure bunches of grapes that are subjected to double-triage before being conveyed into new wooden vats. Oak barrels from French coopers complete the wine's formation. Final soft pressing is undertaken in an imported basket press.

The wine has a roundness and innate harmony, which belies its intensity, strength, and concentration.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dense purple-colored 2002 Emigre offers a sweet nose of blackberries, camphor, and smoke. Full-bodied, opulent, elegant, and seamless, it is a big, well-balanced red with wonderful ripeness, nicely-integrated wood, and a long, concentrated mouthfeel.

The Colonial Estate, Australia
The Colonial Estate is a range of limited-production Barossa Valley wines that are handpicked and vinified using mainly French methods by Jonathan Maltus of Bordeaux' Chateau Teyssier.

CWC's approach is deliberately and uniquely French. The wines are handpicked into trays and double-sorted. The reds receive cold pre-maceration, delestages, pigeage, and maceration on the skins prior to ageing in French oak; whilst the whites get whole-bunch pressing and lees batonnage and are fermented with yeasts imported from Champagne. The reds come, in principle from the prime Northern Arc of the Barossa Valley and the whites from the cool-climate of the Adelaide Hills. The wines are produced from vines that are either owned by the Company or are from selected growers.
