Glug GH62 Winemakers Individual Barrel Selection Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Region:Barossa Valley, South Australia
Perhaps the best wine to give you the real Barossa taste are these single barrel bottlings. The idea formed long ago but we did not have the technical ability nor indeed the equipment.
The later arrived a few years ago from Italy, a country that specialises in making miniatures of large pieces of expensive equipment.
Importantly we wanted a neutral gas head as we bottled so the wines did not oxidise later. With that in place Benjamin began selecting individual barrels of wine that he wanted preserved. This provides our customers with the chance to understand what the winemaker does in the winery every day.
I can barely imagine what a large company wine maker thinks when 25 great barrels are blended with 250 barrels not as good to make the street blend you buy in the chain store.
