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.
Vital, youthful and vigorous. Bright, punchy fruit aromatics of damson plum and mulberry sit above darker dried herb and wood smoke notes. Mid weight palate with lively red berry and tart stone fruit flavours that mesh with nervy, bright fruit acids and light, snappy tannins.
This wine is from the vintage’s best Cabernet Sauvignon barrels and in 2017 produced from a single vineyard in central Eden Valley.
John Lienert (aka Jack West) has crafted out of his family vineyards spectacular Grenache. Light to medium weight, intensely coloured and bright fruits make a sensational Western Barossa Ridge Grenache.
Deep garnet in colour with an alluring complex aroma of spicy red current and blackberry fruits, underpinned by dried thyme and bay leaf. The palate is very concentrated, fleshy and well structured finishing with the hallmark Remus refinement. From an outstanding vintage, this wine will cellar well for many years to come.
Ruby in colour, alluring spice and savoury aromas, rounded and fleshy in structure finishing with lovely acidity and focus.
Miette is a direct translation from the French word "Crumb".
It's a direct reference to the yummy morsels left on the side of your plate after a hearty meal. Far from being leftovers, Pete Schell's Miette wines represent sensational value and are a great introduction to the Spinifex approach to winemaking.
Elegance and power combined beautifully ion this wine. Produced from a single vineyard planted in 1905, this Barossa Shiraz is extravagant. Poise, silken, direct and exaggerated flavours. Only 260dozen bottles produced.
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.
Planted in 1941 these deep rooted vines provide Grenache of exceptional quality. Minimal intervention in the vineyard makes for an amazingly charasmatic wine.
The PUMPA is a blend of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Tempranillo varieties. Named as a
tribute to Len PUMPA and his fellow Eden Valley Vignerons who pioneered and persisted in one of Australia’s
most challenging but rewarding viticultural regions.
Eden Valley had a mix of British and continental European settlers that tried their hand at grape-growing.
When times were tough particularly in the 1920s many turned away from viticulture, however the Prussian
settlers like Len PUMPA persisted in the face of difficulty, preserving the vineyard resources we are
custodians of today.
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.
