A towering Barossa Shiraz. Distinctively spicy, brimming with prune, pepper and leather aromas and flavors on a rich, supple frame. Resonates beautifully on the finish, and will only deepen with additional cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 2,500 cas... Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1997 Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz E & E Black Pepper 750ml

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. Instead of trying to sell the grapes to winemakers for little reward, they decided to take control of their own destiny by forming a cooperative and making their own wine. Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed. Read less

Super chunky with hickory-smoked bacon and buttery oak aromas. The fruit is thick like pie veering toward jammy blackberry. Finishes wall-to-wall with licorice flavor medium tannins and heavy oak. A heavy wine that may be tough to match with food but will no doubt appeal to many people. Wine Enthusiast.
