It's a tough job!
The last few weeks the Artisans of Barossa and Harvest Kitchen crews have been out and about visiting some pretty special single site vineyards.
First of the rank was the Angaston foothills vineyard that Jaysen Collins from Massena uses for his JC's Own Originale Grenache. The vineyard is a stunning 150 year old, dry grown & bush vine gem that is nestled into the foothills just out of Angaston - a pretty special spot indeed.
Then it was off into the Eden Valley with John Duval to visit the vineyard that is home to some stunning Shiraz that goes into JD's Entity and Eligo. A quick tasting through the John Duval lineup including a sneak peek at the yet to be released 15 Annexus Grenache.
After that the team headed over to the settlement of Bethany, the original settlement of the German population here in the Barossa and home to the Schwarz family. The Thiele Road Grenache block is one of those hidden gems, Jason Schwarz has been making his old vine and dry grown Grenache of the same name for the last 12 years from this same plot.
