It seems only natural for our Artisans who share a Tasting Room to get together and make wines together. The relationships in the Barossa and collective knowledge that our 5 Artisans collectively hold is worth tapping into.
These are the wines that allow them to step outside of their own individual style. These are extraordinary wines representing exceptional value.
These are the wines made by mates for their mates.
This is a very exciting wine for us - brooding blueberry lifted sour cherry and a hint of pastrami aromas on the nose, a richly concentrated and rounded mid-palate framed with focused acidity and freshness. And whilst the variety is renowned for producing age-worthy wines, we'd recommend enjoying this as a young wine when the fruits are bright and fresh.
Artisans will be at Game of Rhones in Melbourne this weekend – if you’ve been lucky enough to grab a ticket, come along and say g’day. If not, we’re saying farewell to Game of Rhones with a six-pack of great Barossa wines produced from classic Rhone grape varieties.
One wine from each of the five Artisans foundation wineries, plus a bonus bottle of our team effort – the Wednesday Night Wine Company Barossa Valley Shiraz.
Bountiful aromas of ripe blueberry and red liquorice, with a palate loaded with bright, juicy and lovely dark berried fruits and a fine savour line of tannins.
The foundations of the Six Origins project lie in the diverse and undulating Barossa landscape and the perspectives of six artisan winemakers. The intent is to present you the wine lover with a ‘journey of discovery’ .
The Cabernet that is grown in this vineyard - Boongarrie - is renowned for its intense blood red colour and flavour concentration. There’s plenty of cassis and dark chocolate on the palate with a touch of cedar and fine, grainy tannins. The finish is long and smooth. 2017 was a benchmark vintage for Eden Valley Cabernet, and this wine is a great example of how well this variety is suited to the region
Barossa winemakers have developed a strong affinity for all things Spain and as expected our Artisans have been at the Vanguard of experimentation with these emerging varieties.

The idea of blending Shiraz from the Eastern and Western extremities of the Barossa make perfectly good sense. The ripe plum, blackberry and white chocolate flavours of the Western Barossa Valley integrate perfectly with the perfumed red fruits, liquorice and spice of the Eastern Eden Valley, coming together to produce a delicious, rich, flavoursome and ultimately beautifully balanced wine.
