WINEMAKING

To ensure the unique character of this sub-region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine. Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

The Barossa has some of the oldest and diverse soil types in the world, contributing to what makes our wines unique. Discover the differences between Barossa’s sub-regions. A journey through the Terroirs is a lesson in the Barossa’s versatility. This is the 10th vintage of this wine from the Ebenezer District, an area famous for its elegant and structured style of Shiraz.

Soil: Red Brown Earth on Calcerous Subsoil

Altitude: 278m

TASTING NOTES

Shiraz wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice. The palate is full of red fruits, leather, cedar and fine, talc-like tannins.

Dave Brookes (Halliday Wine Companion)

Shiraz sourced from the famous northern Barossa parish of Ebenezer; basket pressed and aged in oak for 18 months. Deep ruby in the glass with characters of blackberry, black cherry and dark plum cut with baking spices, dark chocolate, ironstone, licorice and earth. Fine, chocolaty tannins provide support and there’s a lovely balance and savoury fruit depth to its form. Finishes long and true to its source.

Erin Larkin (Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate)

The 2020 Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer District Shiraz is sweet, gritty, black and intense, with loads of resin-y, chewing tobacco tannins. A skein of sweet balsamic drizzles across the pomegranate fruit. 14.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Drink Date: 2023-2033

Ray Jordan (Wine Pilot)

A ripe and generous statement of pure Barossa with aromas of blackberry, dark plum and a spicy dark chocolate combination working well. Smooth and lavishly rich palate with a fine spicy lift to the regional ironstone influences. Tannins are fine but firm and the oak well managed. Drink by: 2024-2036
