Expert Reviews

A bold, juicy and complex wine, with flavours of plum, black cherry and vanilla; is not too sweet and oaky, will repay cellaring. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2010

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Aromas of cherry, plum and a hint of chocolate combine well with subtle oak nuances.

Palate

The immense flavour profile, round mouthfeel and smooth silky tannins are a result of 30 months maturation in French and American barriques.

Food Matching

Enjoy as an aperitif, Christmas turkey, duck confit, strong cheeses. Or try it with bacon and eggs for brunch, but we caution you as you may like it too much...!

Cellaring Potential

This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 10 years for further complexity.

Winemaking Notes

Our Sparkling Shiraz is unique! Made from 100% Shiraz and is aged in equal portions of French and American oak of which 30% is new - exactly the same as our E&E Black Pepper Shiraz. The wine is then blended and aged for an additional twelve months in old French oak barrels prior to bottling. From there the wine goes through bottled fermentation, aged on lees for a minimum of twelve months before being riddled, disgorged and topped with liqueur. Absolutely worth the wait!

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed in 1984 by 80 third and fourth generation grape growers who took control of their destiny by forming a co-operative and produce their own wine. Combining their skills and blending their grapes from across the Barossa Valley, they rode out the hard times and built for the future.

Every BVE wine is made in the reflection of our world-famous E&E Black Pepper Shiraz. Crafted from 100% Barossa Valley fruit our wines highlight the true expression of the richness and character of the region.

In 1984, the consumption of red wine was declining. Offering handsome subsidies, the federal government urged growers to pull out their ancient Shiraz vines and replace them with Chardonnay. But there were 80 third and fourth generation Barossa Valley grape growers who refused. Stubbornness became their strength. Instead of trying to sell the grapes to winemakers for little reward, they decided to take control of their own destiny by forming a cooperative and making their own wine. Barossa Valley Estate (BVE) was formed.
