About This Wine

Fourteen fruit parcels were sourced from nine vineyards (averaging 70 years of age), mainly growing in the sandy and gravel shot clay soils of the Eastern Foothills, Moppa and Ebenezer sub regions. All vineyards are owned and farmed by old Barossa families who have a deep pride and connection with their land and the Valley. Each vineyard is hand harvested at the optimal maturity to contribute its best character and point of balance to the blend. Around 40% of bunches are retained within ferments, with the balance only being destemmed, which are under taken in small open stainless steel and old oak open fermenters with indigenous yeasts. Macerations vary between parcels and range from 6 to 21 days. Young wines are left on lees in a selection of seasoned oak vessels, ranging in size from between 500 litre and 3100 litre, and a portion kept in stainless steel, for 16-18 months prior to assemblage. Esprit is unfined and unfiltered.

Barossa Valley Wine

The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.

A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.

Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
