Please Join us this Friday from 5:30-8:00pm as we sample the fine Wines of Barossa Valley Estate.
Barossa Valley Estate was established in 1985 by a group of Barossa Valley grape growers who saw an opportunity to add value to their harvest. The winery was initially established as a co-operative with the objective of making and marketing premium bottled wine. The grape growers and the winemaker have a very close relationship due to this structure and the synergy that has developed is evident in the richness and depth of flavors in the wine. Since its inception, Barossa Valley Estate has gone from strength to strength. Please join us as we sample Shiraz, GSM and Cabernet.
The 2013 Barossa Valley Estate GSM shows plenty of fruit, a hint of sugar and dollop of oak, a crowd-pleaser. Dark ruby color; attractive, ripe fruit aroma, medium depth; medium bodied, kind of round on the palate; dryish, may have a couple of grams of residual sugar, good balance; grape, ripe fruit, plummy flavors; medium finish, easy aftertaste. 89points
Upfront and appealing, the ripe-fruited 2013 Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz is simply a fine, grapey wine; perfect with simply grilled meats. Medium to deep ruby color, appealing ripe fruit aroma, lots of good primary characters, fine depth; medium bodied, well built and smooth on the palate, soft tannins, juicy; grapey, black fruit flavors, easy aftertaste.
