The Mob Montepulciano
With this exclusive single vineyard you are getting a rare limited edition wine (only 200 dozen bottles made).
This extravagant wine comes with a dramatic story... In its first year, a group of sheep, affectionately named “The Mob”, squeezed through a hole in the vineyard fence. It was a tragedy for the vines, and almost proved to be fatal for this tiny patch of the estate. They ravished the whole plot! But all was not lost. Three years later and the first crop of grapes to be delivered from these tough young vines are second to none. That’s the beauty of growing on ironstone and red clay.
Deeply coloured, as we all love our Barossa reds to be, the Atze’s take on this style is full of dark cherries and blackberries supported by a spine of fine, savoury tannins. Its richness and juicy-fruit is clearly Barossa but there’s more than a nod, in the savoury, food-friendly style to Italy.
It's a real crowd pleaser and it has a history of numerous awards to back up its world class pedigree.
The Bachelor Shiraz
The vivid crimson colour that welcomes you to this wine betrays its concentration and ripeness. Elegant and extremely classy French oak aromas greet your nose, along with sweet spices, cinnamon and cedar.
Flowing through to the palate, your taste buds are met by a mellow, rich wine with ripe blueberries and damson plum flavours. Currently it’s youthful and explosively rich with primary brightness melded with subtle oak toastiness.
As it evolves in the cellar I see layers of complexity revealing themselves and the opulence maturing into more subtle flavours. It’s a show-stopper right now though!
Altogether, this is an extremely harmonious wine with a succulence, making it the perfect accompaniment for high-grade Wagyu steak or slow roast lamb.
The Giant Durif
The Durif red wine grape is one of Australia’s undiscovered gems. We suspect that people in the know keep quiet about it so as not to arouse too much competition for what is, after all, a scarce bottle of wine. Atze’s Corner is one of the only wineries in the Barossa Valley to have planted Durif, and based on the outstanding results, there is a plan to plant more in the future.
Named 'The Giant' in tribute to an overly tall Barossa settler, the wine fully lives up to that description in all respects. You just have to witness the colour, which is a luminous purple black!
It’s dark and deliciously deep. The bouquet is brooding, dark and moody with black fruits and sweet spices, maybe a hint of liquorice too. A full-bodied wine with crafted, harmonious tannins backed up with a fresh line of acidity the fruit shines vividly.
For a variety noted for its robust tannins, this wine has got them fully corralled and under control. Tannins are there, but the fruit is so rich that they meld seamlessly, giving the wine some backbone and future, but not, by any means, preventing you enjoying it straight away.
