GOLD MEDAL - China Wine and Spirits Awards 2020

GOLD MEDAL - Berlin Wine Trophy 2021

96 POINTS - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"This is immensely powerful and opulent, showing blackberry, dark chocolate, cured meat, cedar and violet aromas on the nose. The palate is equally impressive with outstanding depth and richness, wonderfully framed by chalky tannins, making the wine sturdy and persistent. At its best: now to 2038."

94+ POINTS - Andrew Caillard MW
"Medium deep crimson. Fresh blackberry dark chocolate brambly aromas with some herb garden notes. Lovely buoyant medium-bodied style with soft blackberries, mulberry berry fruits, fine supple velvety tannins and underlying roasted chestnut notes. Finishes chalky firm, fresh and juicy with a kick of liquorice. ...delicious classic modern Barossa Shiraz."

93 POINTS Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
"A bit cedary on the nose, the 2018 Terroirs of the Barossa Marananga Shiraz combines oaky notes of vanilla and maple syrup with red-berried fruit and peppery spice. Full-bodied and silky in texture, it's rich and mouthfilling yet retains a sense of elegance that belies its considerable alcohol (15.5% on the label), finishing in a long, gentle glide of raspberries and cinnamon red hots. Drink Date: 2021 - 2030"

 

BUYERS PICK!!!!

Marananga, centred in the North West quadrant of the Barossa provides some of the Valley’s most powerful wines. The red brown clay loam soils with schists and siltstone yield flavours of jam and fruitcake, cardamom, blueberry fruits, cocoa powder with an undercurrent of roasted meats and crackling.

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 for 18 months and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.
