Ray Jordan

“One of the famous names of the Barossa. It is a wine that has marvelous ageing potential. This one shows deep, rich, supple fruit with a thread of ripe tannins. It’s typically opulent and dense with so much packed into the chocolatey and slightly toasty palate.”

James Suckling

“Blackberry compote, a touch of mint essence, five spices and chocolate-covered dark cherries. Full body, loads of juicy tannins, a fine line of fresh acidity and a chewy finish.” "

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Viticulture Vintage & Winemaking

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Just one hour’s drive from South Australia’s capital, Adelaide, lies its gourmet capital (and wine Mecca), Barossa. One of the country’s most beautiful and historic wine regions, Barossa is a magnet for lovers of fine food and wine. Its classic Mediterranean climate, and free-draining red brown soils, makes the region ideal for growing grapes. Barossa produces excellent Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Riesling and Semillon.

Shiraz fruit was selected from low yielding, mature vineyards in the Barossa.

The 2015/2016 vintage was characterised by a very warm and dry late Spring/early Summer period, finishing with a well-timed rainfall event at the end of January followed by mild weather conditions throughout February. These conditions restricted yields and led to high quality fruit potential.

Shavaughn Wells - Winemaker

Shavaughn grew up on a vineyard in Victoria’s Merbein; her grandfather was a winemaker and Managing Director of Mildara Wines. Completing an Oenology degree at the University of Adelaide, Shavaughn followed in her grandfather’s footsteps undertaking her first vintage at Mildara in 1997. Shavaughn is the recipient of a coveted Len Evans Scholarship; and in 2016 she was awarded Australian Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine and was inducted as a Baron of Barossa in 2017.
