From its origins as a grape bred for disease resistance to its rise to prominence in California and Australia, Durif has carved a path of distinction.
From California to Rutherglen and beyond now to the Barossa, its velvety texture, dark fruit flavors, and hints of pepper leave a lasting impression on those fortunate enough to experience it.
Atze’s Corner Wines are excited to announce they have partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to fund their reforestation and poverty alleviation efforts worldwide.
For every single bottle of Atze’s wine sold (domestically and internationally), a tree will be planted thanks to this initiative and collaboration between the Barossa Valley winery and the charity organisation.
Welcome to this months recipe and wine of the month, this is something a little more special being a back vintage wine from a vintage (2013) which is proving to be one that rewards patience of cellaring.
The vibrancy of the wine intensifies the dish. The match was so good that the bottle could be easily finished (or was) by the end of the meal.
We love our GSM in SA. Produced in most of our key winegrowing regions, each adaptation expresses a sense of place and a time stamp on what’s trending at the time.
GSM is a pillar of the wine scene, past and present - and a versatile one at that.
Our Wild Rose Vermentino is the perfect wine to enjoy chilled with a seafood platter or a grilled fish.
The acidity of the wine cuts through the heat of the tomato sauce and the richness of the pasta by creating another layer of complexity.
Our food and wine match of the month...
Prawns in a spicy tomato sauce with home-made fettuccine!
Our Eddies Shiraz 2017 is a wonderful blend of our 3 oldest Shiraz vineyards. It can be enjoyed now, however we recommend decanting or opening it a few hours before pouring. Or you could wait another 15 years to experience its full potential.
The Beef Wellington combination highlights the wine's flavours, acidity and tannin to perfection.
Prior to making our own wine, we were grape growers and farmers, selling our produce and and grapes to Barossan wineries including Torbreck, Penfolds, Wolf Blass, Peter Lehmann and St Hallett.
Helped along in the winemaking by friends, some amazing local talented winemakers, 2005 became the first vintage of our Eddies Old Vine Shiraz.
Our Wild Rose Rosé is the perfect wine to enjoy chilled with a platter, a pasta or a vegetarian dish. Making dishes like this perfect for the warm weather we have in store for the next few months! Our food and wine match of the month is Spinach and cheese Gozleme.
When the Grecians and the Romans made their way to France, they cultivated land to grow vines around the region that we now call Provence, meaning this region has been making Rosé since around about 600BC. These vineyards were eventually purchased by the King’s nobles and members of the infantry, and treated with great care thanks to respect for wines that were becoming revered around the world.
This “Giant” calls for some hearty winter food: As we are in the final days of cooler weather before Summer, beef cheeks or lamb shanks will be your perfect match!
Our Durif 2017 can be drunk now, but it can also easily cellar for another 10 years.
Today I'm extra extra excited to share my recipe of the month with a variety which we grow extensively back on my family's Chateau back in Bordeaux, France.
And I'm really fussy when trying any wines made from this variety from around the world. The pressure is really on my Husband Ryan and bosses John and Barb when they grow and make the variety that is closest to my French heart!
The acidity of the wine cut through the richness of the meat. The coleslaw brings crunchiness to the pairing which creates an extra layer to the match.
The pepperiness of the rocket highlights the Shiraz component in the wine.
The wine and food pairing increases the creaminess and volume of the wine. It reveals the true side of an Atze’s Corner Wine: generosity and voluptuous.
The last of his family line, Bert’s family were the custodians of one of our premium vineyard sites from the 1880’s. Bert spent his years doing what he loved – tending to his land and his animals.
What you're drinking when you buy an "Estate" wine.
So you may spot the phrase “Estate Grown” or “Estate made” or “Estate Grown and made” in a winery’s marketing or even on the wine label itself and ask yourself…. What does it all mean?
