A 20th anniversary vintage from the Barossa.

Deep ruby with violet hues. Lifted raspberry, red currant, mulberry and Satsuma plum, with floral notes of violets, lavender, crushed flowering herbs and anise, pepper and mace spice. A rich and intense palate of well defined, concentrated red fruits; red currant, cut plum and spicy wild berries, give way to crunchy mid palate, firm-edged velvety tannins and excellent length.

This shiraz, grenache, mataro and viognier blend is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry’s death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her temperance convictions by closing the winery and uprooting all of the wine grapes. This blend highlights the historical introduction of southern French and Spanish varieties to South Australia in those early days of viticulture and reflects the history, religion and culture of the Barossa.

93 – Andrew Caillard, The Vintage Journal

“Deep crimson. Intense black cherry, graphite, dark chocolate aromas with hints of stone fruit and aniseed. Concentrated black cherry, dark plum, praline flavours, with some apricot notes, fine chalky dry/ grippy textures and roasted walnut notes. Finishes firm with chinotto, dark berry fruits. Sturdy and compact with very good density and vigour. Should unfold with bottle age and best to wait for a while.”
