Artisans of Barossa Small Batch Wines Project

We've been working on some new projects here at Artisans and we're very excited about our new collaborative winemaking project - Artisans Of Barossa Small Batch Wines.

The Artisans collaboration of John Duval Wines, Spinifex Wines, Schwarz Wine Company, Hobbs of Barossa Ranges, Massena and Sons of Eden gives unparalleled access to the cellars of some of the Barossa best small winemakers. Our winemakers are able to hand select individual barrels and small parcels of wine to craft these Small Batch wines.

The first wines in the Small Batch series are made by Sons of Eden Winemaker Corey Ryan. Winemaker and self-confessed wine tragic, Corey lives and breathes wine, having worked in Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy and Spain. Whilst equally comfortable crafting cool climate Pinot Noir as he is signature Barossa styles, it was Corey’s time as Winemaker for iconic Eden Valley producer Henschke that established an appetite for Barossa wines that is now his passion as co-proprietor of Sons of Eden.

The Small Batch wine series includes a Rosé, Graciano, Grenache and Shiraz. We have a limited amount of Small Batch reds available in a six pack (see below for details).

2016 Artisans of Barossa Small Batch Grenache.  
The approach in the winery is very much around preserving and promoting varietal character, and ensuring the wine is an honest showing of its Vine Vale locale. There’s lifted fresh maraschino cherry with spicy cinnamon and clove aromas and the palate is loaded with delicious, juicy, fleshy & succulent Grenache flavours with terrific depth and richness

2016 Artisans of Barossa Small Batch Graciano. 
Growers Simon and Kendy Cowham from Light Pass are producing outstanding quality fruit. This is an exciting wine for us given the rarity of this variety in Barossa. The wine features blueberry and lifted sour-cherry aromas, a richly concentrated and rounded mid-palate framed with focused acidity and freshness. We recommend enjoying this as a young wine when the fruits are bright and fresh.

2017 Artisans of Barossa Small Batch Shiraz.  
A delicious, rich, flavoursome and beautifully balanced wine. 

The pack features two bottles each of the Small Batch reds and can be delivered to you for $160.00 ($150 + discounted shipping of $10) saving you over $75. Inside the case, we'll include Corey's tasting notes on each of the wines
