From crisp dry Rosés to Shiraz with some serious structure and all the delights of Grenache inbetween.
The range of reds available shows the full spectrum of styles available here at Artisans of Barossa.
Sourced from a 100+ year old vineyard north of Nuriootpa that is situated on sandy loam soil.
A wine that offers a great intensity in colour and a nose of black cherries and dark plum. Meta Mataro is a great expression of juicy tannin and solid stage presence on the back of your palate. Plenty of up front fruit is a welcome balancing act. This is a wine to be enjoyed now!
A pack that highlights the three top wines from the Old Vine vineyards of the Hobbs Family.
Pack contains one each of the following - Gregor Shiraz, 1905 Shiraz and Tango Shiraz Viognier.
Whilst this is the first single vineyard wine we have released from this vineyard, it has been a source of exceptional old vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro for Spinifex since 2005. The vineyard is located in the “Moppa”, an elevated area in the northern reaches of the Barossa Valley that sits within the triangle bounded by Greenock, Kalimna and Koonunga Hil.
This time honoured blend is our offering to Zephyrus, Greek God of the West Wind, who is often depicted as a horse due to the speed attributed to this majestic animal. The vineyards of the Greater Barossa are regularly buffeted by cooling Westerly winds creating an ideal temperature range in which to slowly ripen.
With grapes from a selection of soils in Apalta and a special fermentation, we have achieved a full-bodied, concentrated wine. 18 months in French oak barrels and one year in the bottle have brought balance and roundness to the wine and concentrated the purity and elegance of the fruit.
This is the 5th vintage we have sourced fruit from the Amadio Vineyard in the northern Adelaide Hills. As is typical, this single vineyard Aglianico was the last parcel we harvested in 2016.
The KENNEDY is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Valley Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron’s who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the ‘soul’ of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass Vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo ‘Joe’ KENNEDY who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
This is a wine for lovers of beautifully mature Barossa Shiraz wines.
Meta Shiraz is a great divergance from the traditional full throtle Barossan Shiraz. It's juicy, medium bodied and lighter in pallet weight and very very drinkable!
The Nitschke Bloch Shiraz is from my family's vineyard in Bethany, one of the originally settled villages of the Barossa Valley. Planted in 1968 by my father and mother the vines are still traditionally hand pruned and picked.
