Description

This Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Viognier blend is a tribute to Henry Evans who planted the first vineyard of seven acres at Keyneton in 1853. He quickly developed a reputation for producing the best wines in the southern colony. Following Henry’s death in 1868, his widow Sarah exercised her temperance convictions by closing the winery and uprooting all the wine grapes. This blend highlights the historical introduction of southern French and Spanish varieties to South Australia in those early pioneering days and reflects the history, religion and culture of the Barossa.

Review

Deep dark colour with a rich ripe and plush notes of black plums and cherries, the palate full bodied and fleshy, seductively smooth and supple in texture, with good length and loads of appeal. Drinks well now but there is no hurry.
