The foundations of the Six Origins Project lie in the diverse and undulating Barossa landscape, and the perspectives of six skilled artisan winemakers. Each maker a knowledgeable and respected advocate for the particular qualities of Barossa wine. Each charged with producing a wine that presents as a distinctive expression of Barossa wine determined primarily by origin. True to the spirit of Artisans of Barossa, the decisions around vineyard selection, picking date and winemaking practices are the privilege of the winemaker, but each wine is most definitely crafted to ensure the final result is a pronounced reflection of its vineyard origin.
Our first Six Origins project focuses on the Barossa’s hero – Shiraz. Six winemakers have presented six wines that showcase the diversity of expression in Shiraz made possible almost entirely by diversity of the Barossa landscape. Collectively, Six Origins presents you the wine lover with a ‘journey of discovery’ opportunity. To travel confidently across the Barossa vineyard map through a sequenced tasting guided by the insights of each winemaker into the origins and flavour, character and texture of their wine.
