A Rhone-based blend of Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvedre as well as Carignan & Cabernet Sauvignon, it exhibits a sweet perfume of graphite, black fruits, sweet cherries, licorice, smoke, and background vanillin. Full-bodied, rich, textured, and impressively long, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

Auge: hellgelb mit goldenen Reflexen; Nase: klassische Sémillon-Nase, frisch und fruchtig, mit einem Hauch von Holz und Honig; Gaumen: im Mund angenehm, ausgewogen und frisch, von durchschnittlicher Struktur. Die Assemblage mit dem Riesling, ohne jeglichen Säurezusatz, verleiht Textur und Frische. Langer Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Barossa Valley is a source of disparate terroirs. For Émigré the inspiration has been to embrace this and produce a wine that represents the palette of the Barossa Valley - from Greenock in the western hills to the Eden Valley in the east, taking in the valley floor. Émigré is sourced from the Colonial-owned vineyards and is made up of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre, Muscadelle, and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the vineyards comprising Grenache and Mourvedre surround the stone built winery. The wine is the product of diligent viticulture. Spur-pruning, canopy management, green harvesting, and handpicking all come together to produce ripe, pure bunches of grapes that are subjected to double-triage before being conveyed into new wooden vats. Oak barrels from French coopers complete the wine’s formation. Final soft pressing is undertaken in an imported basket press.
