Sagrantino is deeply coloured and is one of the most tannic grape varieties, despite generally being a medium bodied wine the plumage of tannin promotes the mouthfeel. The exotic red cherry, dried herb, and smoky blue-fruits typify the aroma and flavours of Sagrantino.
The unique personality of Sagrantino is beautifully captured in the label art by Bonnie Supple.
Freya was the foremost goddess of Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated. This wine honours early German settlers who first sdettled the Barossa!
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.
John's aim with Plexus is to express the wide spectrum of red fruit flavours from Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre and also provide structure with a seamless balance and long finish. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques are employed allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth, but also cellar for 8-10 years.
There is something innately intriguing about wines made from a single vineyard, for not only are they rare, but they are truly unique. Representing an expression of place and time, it is simply impossible for their flavour, character and texture to be replicated in any other wine.
Here are six simply superb wines to enjoy!
The Grenache Project is six wines made by six winemakers from one Barossa vineyard. An experiment designed to explore the influence of winemaking on the terroir of a single vineyard.
Selected for its pure, bright vitality, Grenache is an ideal canvas upon which our winemakers can express their craft, and themselves. In 2018, each winemaker was allocated a single row of vines in the Kylie’s Garden Vineyard at Stockwell in the northern Barossa. They were then let off the leash, given free rein and left entirely to their own devices. The brief was as simple as it was short… ’make a Grenache you’d like to drink.’
Schwarz Wine Co. Chenin Blanc is bright, fresh, laden with troppical aromatrics and delivered with crunchy acidity. A wine to enjoy now, not deliberate over. Chill, pour and relax!
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.
