Gives the Full Flavoured Joy of the Barossa
Grandma Raethel Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015
Region: Barossa Valley
I well recall the First Grandma Shiraz, a 2001 vintage which we acquired from the Rolf Binder winery in the Barossa Valley, though Benjamin knew the wine well as he had worked with the wine in each barrel.
It was in fact the first premium wine we acquired and thus marks the start of our journey with celebrating the greatness of the Barossa Valley. We have no connection with the founding German families or any others for that matter and stumbled across the fascinating story of Betty Raethel, born in Moculta, quite by accident, so she has become our symbol of all that is special about this unusual and beautiful vineyard region.
For Shiraz it is a bit like real estate with the cry of location, location, and for a variety of reasons all the growing factors that make great Shiraz have come together to this small region on Earth.
