  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    On the palate this wine is quite tight and crunchy, with the whole bunches adding more tannin to the palate, along with some bright, crunchy fruit.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Located on the golden stretch of Seppeltsfield Road in the heart of the Barossa Valley, Whistler was established in 1999 by the Pfeiffer family, the German "Pfeiffer" translating to "Whistler" in English. The 15 hectare vineyard operates entirely under organic and biodynamic practices with Josh Pfeiffer at the helm. Josh is the next generation of Whistler custodians having returned to the winery in 2013 after a five year winemaking stint at Henschke and a further two years at Two Hands. Josh's "Next Gen" range of wines is all about fun and drinkability. Voted one of the Dark Horses in James Halliday's Wine Companion 2016 and Top 50 Young Guns of Wine for 2016 as well as taking out the People's Choice vote in each city around Australia for Game of Rhones in 2017, both Josh Pfeiffer and Whistler have fast become one of the winemakers and brands to watch in the Barossa.

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    Tasting a raft of wines where you have no clue what they are is so often an interesting process. As with this one, where I thought, ‘What the f*ck is this!?’ A little research, just now, shows it’s 100% whole bunch from a vineyard in ‘Seppeltsfield that is randomly interplanted with Grenache, Mataro, Shiraz and Alicanté Bouschet.’ Train tracks and iron, floral and sweet, red fruits, spice and candy. Ironstone, fine tannin, coal and red fruits, peculiar wine, but so interesting. Not sure what’s in there, but it’s a little different for sure. Almost into a frisky Booj style. Yeah. Tannin plays on finish, and it’s so nicely made.

    NICK BUTLER - THE REAL REVIEW


    This is a soft and juicy mix of red, blue and purple berries, definitely a slightly feral component in the mix but it works in the context of the wine as a whole. Enough sinew to give it direction, time won't do it any huge favours. Very attractive right now

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    (Re-tasted) Deepish red colour with a tint of purple and a vegetal bouquet, which is a little on the rank side. A hint of old socks. The palate is medium to full-bodied, drying and slightly chewy, the tannins assertive and dominating the flavour. Future uncertain: drink now. (100% whole-bunch wild ferment. Unfined and unfiltered)
