Rosenvale Vineyards Vine Vale Road Shiraz 2020
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
This is serious Shiraz, mofo. Coming from the legends at Rosenvale, a Barossa Valley winery who were established all the way back in 1850’s. Their lands today are diverse and rich in character, with many vineyards going back 80+ years. James Rosenweig is now the 6th generation to take care of vines in Barossa, and has earnt himself the neat ol’ title of a Baron of Barossa for his dedication to the region’s industry.
As for this particular wine, after the grapes are picked at perfect ripeness to give voluptuous fruit quality, which sees a couple of years in new and seasoned French oak barrels. The resulting wine is dark and deep, with blueberries, spice and a touch of white pepper on the nose. The palate is full of fine tannins and rich red fruits like cherries and plums. It’s not just a mofo fave- it’s an all round consumer fave bringing in an impressive 4.2 rating on Vivino. Certainly not something you see every day on there. Calling all Aussie red lovers, this one should catch your attention!

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
