Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed in 1984 by 80 third and fourth generation grape growers who took control of their destiny by forming a co-operative and produce their own wine. Combining their skills and blending their grapes from across the Barossa Valley, they rode out the hard times and built for the future. Every BVE wine is made in the reflection of our world-famous E&E Black Pepper Shiraz. Crafted from 100% Barossa Valley fruit our wines highlight the true expression of the richness and character of the region. In 1984, the consumption of red wine was declining. Offering handsome subsidies, the federal government urged growers to pull out their ancient Shiraz vines and replace them with Chardonnay. But there were 80 third and fourth generation Barossa Valley grape growers who refused. Stubbornness became their strength.

Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed. Read less

Best bottle of wine I've ever tasted - had never spent more than £20 on a bottle before, and never saw the point. This wine converted me! Don't drink this unless you have the bank balance or willpower to deal with a potentially expensive habit!

($84) Deep, dark red. Heady, primary aromas of ripe blackcurrant, raspberry, red cherry and dark plum handsomely matched by assertive smoky chocolate, ground coffee and vanillin oak aromas. Very floral and spicy, stacked with cloves and nutmeg. Plump... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1998 Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz E & E Black Pepper 750ml
