Region Barossa Valley

Colonel William Light, the South Australian colony’s Surveyor-General, named the Barossa in 1837 after the site of an English victory over the French in the Spanish Peninsular War. In the mid-1800’s Silesian and English immigrants settled in the area. The Barossa itself comprises two distinct sub-regions: Eden Valley and the warmer Barossa Valley floor at 270m.The Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers and relatively low rainfall. Cool sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent modify the temperature, however hot northerly winds can occasionally dominate creating considerable vine stress. Many older established vineyards are dry-grown, but supplementary irrigation is also extensively used. The valley is comprised of rich brown soils and alluvial sands. A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with man

A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with many over 100 years old. Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

Winery VIKING WINES

Langton’s Selections Viking Wines Grand Shiraz, Viking Wines Odin’s Honour Reserve Shiraz Viking Wines was established in 1995 by Swedish born Tord & Charmaine Soderstrom. The 20 acre vineyard, comprising 15 acres of Shiraz and five acres Cabernet Sauvignon, is organically dry grown and was planted during the 1950s. At one stage the Shiraz fruit was earmarked for Penfolds Grange. The vineyard is located at Marananga and planted on friable red-clay soils. The wines are all buoyant Barossa styles with chocolaty tannins and plenty of richness of flavour. The Grand Shiraz, Ironstone Cabernet Sauvignon and Royal Reserve Shiraz are the main stock in-trade. The Odin’s Honour range derived from Marananga and Greenock vineyards are full bodied Shiraz or Shiraz blends. The wines have a presence on the secondary wine market. Although they are regarded as cult-type wines, they still represent good value. Andrew Caillard MW, Langton's
