This is a sumptuous red wine that will reward many years careful cellaring.
The mature Shiraz and Viognier vines of the B&V Vineyard achieve a natural balance of moderate growth and low crop on its micaceous schist derived soils. The vineyard is situated on the western escarpment of Mount Barker on the eastern edge of the Adelaide Hills.

Winery Tasting Notes
Dark, brooding, vibrant dry red.
The aroma has loads of spicy dark fruit and cherries and blackberries are complemented by a touch of anise.
The palate is full and rich, with sweet black fruits and continues the spicy savoury theme. Lovely cinnamon, toasty oak complement fine abundant tannins.
The B&V Vineyard was planted in 1992 on micaceous schist derived soils on the western escarpment of Mt Barker on the eastern edge of the Adelaide Hills. The climate and soil of this vineyard closely resemble those of Cote Rotie in the Northern Rhone Valley where Shiraz and Viognier are native varieties.
