Region Barossa

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 many

Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

If anything all of those great old names – Steingarten, St Hugo and Lawson’s – have not really benefited from this repositioning on the secondary wine market.

If anything all of those great old names – Steingarten, St Hugo and Lawson’s – have not really benefited from this repositioning on the secondary wine market. St Hugo has always been one of Coonawarra's leading Cabernets with an enviable track record of quality. The wine is a made from select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, mostly older plantings, all grown on the iron rich terra rossa soils over limestone. However it is no longer regarded as a member of the forward pack of Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignons. However St Hugo does represent terrific value. The wines are consistently good showing refined varietal intensity and flavours, fine tannin structure and good flavour length. Lawson’s Shiraz, named after Robert Lawson, one of the early pioneers of the cool climate Padthaway region, is also a well regarded wine with a similar cachet. It can still claim regional definition, consistency of quality and value, but it rarely achieves the top note of Australian Shiraz. The Padthaway fruit is drawn from a single vineyard planted in 1968 on deep sandy soils on gentle eastern slopes surrounded by eucalypt trees. These are rich, flavoursome wines with plenty of rich Shiraz fruit definition, a touch of menthol and ripe mouth-filling tannin structure. Centenary Hills Barossa Shiraz is also a good value wine showing good regional characters and volume of fruit. Steingarten, once regarded as one of Australia’s great Rieslings, has become something of an enigma. The wine still shows up on the market sometimes defying expectations. Jacaranda Ridge – which was much vaunted at release in 1982 – seems to have disappeared off the radar screen. This is a wine that has had a troubled evolution. Conflicting wine making philosophies and technical problems have slowed progress. A 2003 vintage was released in 2007. Generally the Orlando Jacob’s Creek Saints range represents excellent value.
