The Contrarian 2021


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

2021 will go down in history as one of the great
Barossan years. This Contrarian was initially so
unusually powerful in tannin that the wine needed
an extra 5 months in barrel. Muscular red fruit and
spice with brilliant texture and layers of dark fruits
lead to chewy long tannins. Will shine with sirloin
and truffled mash.
