    Sourced from old vineyards in the Krondorf, Ebenezer, Moppa, Light Pass and Eden Valley regions comprising 48% Barossa Valley, 52% Eden Valley fruit.
    The parcels of fruit were fermented separately in small stainless steel fermenters with submerged caps and twice daily pump overs. Some batches were left on skins for up to 2 weeks. Post ferment, the component wines were matured in oak for 15months, with 31% in new fine grain French oak hogsheads (300L) and the balance in 2, 3 and 4 year old hogsheads. We intend for the wine to be approachable in its youth, but with ample structure and fruit depth to allow cellaring, under good conditions, for at least 10-12 years.
    Attractive lifted boysenberry, florals and hints of anise and clove. Awash with fresh, vibrant blue fruits/ blueberries and concentrated plum with hints of cedar spice finishing with flowing waves of extremely fine tannins.

    Producer

    John Duval began working with old vine Barossa Shiraz when he commenced his winemaking career at Penfolds in the early 1970’s. Through the 1990’s he played a leading role in trialling maturation of old vine Barossa Shiraz in new French oak hogsheads, contrary to the established winery convention of blending Shiraz from multiple regions and maturation in American oak. The early trials led to the first release of the Penfold’s RWT Barossa Shiraz from the 1997 vintage – a wine that marked a step change moment in the style evolution of Barossa Shiraz. John’s approach to making Barossa Shiraz continues unchanged, and maturation of selected parcels of old vine fruit in French oak is fundamental to producing elegant Shiraz that is true to the Barossa.

    Region

    Australia’s most famous wine region is known for many things. Gnarled, ancient bush-vines and big bold wines. The depth and concentration of its Shiraz, the perfume and line of its Grenache and the spice and meaty heft of its Mataro, or indeed a blend of all three and admired across the globe. But it is a region that is evolving. Sub-regional nuance is being explored and celebrated, alcohol and oak levels have retreated, alternative varieties have been embraced and wine styles span from the concentrated classics to natty numbers. In short; the Barossa is going through a renaissance and in the process, rediscovering itself and confidently paving its path into the future.
