Pete Schell's Papillon was one of the first of the mod-Barossa wines to show that ripeness and depth of flavour needn't come at the expense of freshness and vineyard clarity. All these years later it remains at the very top of its game. If anything, it has never been in better form. Papillon is crafted from a range of old vine, dry grown Grenache (78%) and Cinsault (22%) vineyards, located in the east and far northern reaches of the Barossa Valley. The average age of these low yielding vines today sits at 90 years old.
It sports a deliciously crunchy texture, cleansing acidity, savoury grip, and is somehow perfectly integrated with the wine's generous fruit giving a delicious sense of balance.

TASTING NOTES

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. Local Knowledge: Check out the lovely Casa Carboni wine bar in Angaston.
