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

This wine has a great dark ruby color with a nice aroma of black currant, leather and that little twang that tells your brain this is gonna be good! The taste is very fruit forward, with hints of cherry and blackberry and such a nice velvety mouthfeel and a great finish. This wine would be great with grilled steaks, lamb, or a nice mixed grill, or just by itself (that's how I'm enjoying it even as I type this!). Altogether, this was a really great bottle at a value price!

Bright and lively, with juicy acidity and pretty currant and black raspberry flavors, lingering on the slightly savory finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases imported. -HS The 2006 Shiraz E Minor was aged in French and American oak for up to 6 months. Purple-colored, the nose reveals a touch of cedar, blueberry, and black cherry. On the palate, pepper, spice notes, plum and cherry flavors emerge. The wine has good depth, decent concentration, and moderate length. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. ** SOLD OUT **
