Barossa Valley
The Barossa’s calling card variety; some people outside of our region think it's all we do but anyhow…

Anything up to 12 vineyards go into this wine: it's typically a blend of ~50;50 Barossa and Eden Valleys. The Barossa Valley provides the engine room for the palate, the Eden Valley components provide the lifted aromatics. Mostly French oak, and mostly 500 litre ‘puncheons’ to slow down the oak uptake and preserve aromatics.
