The Contrarian 2020

Shiraz

Each vintage I like to express the Barossa in a contrary manner. ‘The Contrarian’ is my indulgent, creative winemaking outlet and challenges traditional concepts around Barossan Shiraz.  We source Shiraz from vineyards in the Eden Valley which develop flavour at lower than usual alcohols and show ripeness in their stems too. We love what we see in this expression of the Barossa and feel it is a style worthy of your table.

Product Details

Each vintage I like to express the Barossa in a contrary manner and ‘The Contrarian’ is my indulgent, creative winemaking outlet and challenges traditional concepts around Barossan Shiraz. 

We source Shiraz from vineyards in the Eden Valley which develop flavour at lower than usual alcohols and show ripeness in their stems too. We use a different medium for fermentation in cement; which holds the acidity and tannins in a fresher light. We mature (instead of age) the wine in oak that is 10 times larger than a traditional barrel and bottle a little earlier too. 

We love what we see in this expression of the Barossa and feel it is a style worthy of your table.
