Bve E Minor Shiraz 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, dark red in colour, with lifted aromas of cherry blossom, dark chocolate, coffee and ripe blackberries. Integrated into these aromas are spicy oak characters. The palate highlights the E&E style – rich, full bodied, finesse and a long elegant finish.

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

Simple, budget-minded Barossa Shiraz. Has the characteristic Barossa color, its winey grapeness, and the touch of over-extraction. Hollow midpalate, after a vigorous blackberry attack and before a vanillin finish.

Different nose - dusty. Big body, not complex. Tartish. Corny.

Blackberry, raspberry, pepper in nose; good tannin, big fruit, and jam on the palate. Nice peppery finish. Decent balance, drinkable overall.

The E Minor Shiraz from Australia's Barossa Valley is a medium-bodied, spicy Shiraz that boasts big cherry and juicy plum flavors. There is some heat and pepper on the palate - the tannins are level-h
