  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Dark, broody aromas, there is a certain smokiness to the bouquet. The palate is fresh and crisp with a layer of bright red fruits that draws the wine across the palate, makes you salivate and leaves you wanting more. The tannins are fine and elegant, and the acidity gives this wine a lot of precision on the palate.

  • 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


    Well, there is a wine called ‘Fat Bastard’, so perhaps a themed dinner could be done. Redcurrant, raspberry, potpourri, rosehip and a little spice. Medium-bodied, red fruits and a pretty, but juicy flavour, sure-footed emery tannin, spice and peel, and a dry and satisfying finish. Beautifully made and great to drink.

    DAVID BICKNELL - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Grown biodynamically, fermented with 20% whole bunches and given a short 6 month maturation in old puncheons. I can do all but concur with the label - get in my belly. Delicious, precocious, young drinking. Bright purple in colour, bright red fruited with a good dollop of spice and chalky tannins adding a savoury note.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Bright, medium to light red-purple colour of good hue. Clean, fresh spicy grenache aromas, the fruit doing the talking. There are Campari-like bitter herb nuances on the palate and the tannins are fine and tight and add a nice backbone to the wine. Some fruit sweetness at the core. A quite lovely wine, whose structure seems to augur well for the future. (20% whole bunches; wild ferment; unfined & unfiltered)

    A young, bright and fresh grenache with raspberries and flowers, as well as a light wave of wild-herb notes. The palate is fresh and bright with plenty of berry flavor. Drink now. Screw cap.
