Product Description

"A new wine for the stable.....from high up in the sub-region of Moculta Eden Valley where I can utilise whole bunches in my fermentation and maceration. Foot crushing and pigeage was needed and the ferment allowed to begin with natural yeasts.

This was an extremely risky/difficult wine to make. Even more than usual manual work was required and a lot of time, risk, reading, travel, conversation and patience went into this project... did I mention the costs? I have a particular fondness and affinity for this wine and what it represents moving forward. 'The Contrarian' is a wine that goes against common thought." Winemaker's Note


Blackberry, liquorice, spice, some mint and flowers. Medium-bodied, meaty, bloody, plenty of scrub herb, blackcurrant, firm mineral/ironstone tannin – like the tannin here – dry and firm finish. An interesting and very savoury expression of Barossa Shiraz. 92 points Gary Walsh The Wine Front
