The Barons of Barossa wine fraternity was founded in 1975 and makes up many of the top producers in the Barossa including Elderton, Henschke, Kalleske, Glaetzer Wines, Kaesler Wines and Yalumba, to name a few. This wine is made exclusively from some of their finest fruit parcels.
A barrel selection using parcels from all over the Barossa, the final wine is put together by John Glaetzer tapping into his knowledge of what works best for Barossa Shiraz, the wine matured in American oak to give extra impact and flavour.
Dark purple in colour, this wine presents aromas of blackcurrant, chocolate and spice. The palate opens up with rich, ripe dark fruits, juicy cassis and soft spices, while fine-grained tannins lead into a well-balanced finished.
The wine fraternity Barons of Barossa was founded in 1975 by a group of well-known Barossa wine industry personalities. George Kolarovich (Barossa Co-operative, Kaiser Stuhl) was elected as the first Grand Master. Other founding Barons were Wyndham Hill-Smith (Yalumba), Colin Gramp (Orlando), Bill Seppelt (Seppelts), Sir Condor Laucke, Bruce Hoffmann, Peter Lehmann and Cyril Henschke. The current Grand Master is Stephen Henschke. The Fraternity is administered by the Grand Council which is elected biennially. Membership of the Fraternity is by invitation and is offered to persons who have made an outstanding contribution to the Barossa. New Barons are inducted into the Fraternity in a colourful ceremony and membership is for life. The focus of the Barons of Barossa has remained unchanged since its foundation and it continues to proudly and enthusiastically support Barossa wine, viticulture, gastronomy, heritage and the arts. Today the Barons of Barossa are a recognised part of the fabric of Barossa culture and continue to play an important philanthropic and symbolic role. The Barons' motto is "Glory to Barossa".
SAM KIM - WINE ORBIT
A glorious shiraz; the gratifying bouquet shows blackberry, spiced cherry, chocolate brownie, cedar and smoked game characters, leading to a sumptuous palate that is opulent and formidable with layers of rich texture and loads of delectable flavours. The wine exhibits profound fruit power and depth, lavishly enhanced by spicy oak and velvety mouthfeel, finishing extremely long and engaging. At its best: now to 2026.'
