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.
