Second generation winemakers, Rolf Binder and Christa Deans are highly regarded for their skill and commitment to producing premium quality Barossa Valley wines.
The MVV Barossa Valley Shiraz A collection of five Barossa Valley Shiraz vineyards contributed fruit with varying characteristics and add a nice complexity to this wine. The vineyards in the northern region of the Barossa are known for adding depth and weight to a wine, while the vineyards in the Marananga bowl give the wine power and length. Our criteria is to select vineyards that are cropped at a level that is in harmony with the growth of the vines and the strength of the soil.
The Barossa Valley is home to some of the world's oldest Shiraz vineyards. These wines have sustained harsh Australian conditions, with their deep roots enabling the diversity of the subsoil to intensify the fruit.
Using such grapes from the Binder Family Estates in the sub-regions of Marananga and Vine Vale, Rolf Binder has created a focused example of Barossa Shiraz that displays elegance with a persistence of flavour.
Liquorice and blueberry entice the nose, with bright flavours of red berries, blackcurrants and chocolate. The velvety tannins and subtle oak soften the palate and give a long finish. Ripe tannins and a complex acidity lend to the overall perception of a smooth, approachable red wine, with a nice persistence of flavour, lingering well on the palate.
