Heritage Blends from the 1860s

Heritage Blends from the 1860s (6 x 6)

Contains 6 bottles each of the following wines:
Glug 'The Calcutta' Barossa Valley Shiraz Grenache 2016
Glug 'The Switch' Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz 2016

These two wines are the cream of the Glug crop. A short term bargain has been created as we are using a readily printed Glug label while we solve more complex issues of printing our portfolio of mainstream brands. Both I see being released as Crayford or Kitts Creek which we sell at $9.99 day to day. For over a decade we have been releasing a range of Barossa Blends made from the three heritage varieties, Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz.

Shiraz has led the re-definition of the Barossa as production of fortified wines dwindled and finally died. The first experimental Penfolds Grange was a 1951 Barossa Shiraz and many companies followed. Even so when retailing even in the 1980s it was never easy to source well priced Barossa Shiraz, yet the demand existed. Mataro was often a background component in Barossa Shiraz though Grenache less so as creating rich wines with this variety had till then proved difficult. Even so blends of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro-GSMs-began appearing in cellar doors.

Others like Rockford and Veritas-Rolf Binder promoted Mataro. This trickle is now a surge and meant beautiful heritage wines are made each vintage. These two made by Benjamin Parker are outstanding examples.
