Barossa Valley Estate Sparkling Shiraz 'E&e Black Pepper' 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of cherry, plum and a hint of chocolate combine well with subtle oak nuances. The palate shows lifted rich, dark fruit, coffee and spice, with a balance achieved between sweetness of fruit and oak, enhanced by the sparkling wine vibrance. The immense flavour profile, round mouthfeel and smooth silky tannins are a result of 30 months maturation in French and American barriques.

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
