Like most winemakers, I know that the quality of the wine in the glass is decided by the quality of the fruit in the vineyard. For Barossa Babe, I use only grapes from old vines. Not 20 or 30 years old. I'm talking seriously old, perhaps some of the oldest vines in Australia, up to 140 years old!
So, why Barossa Babe? Well, this wine was my secret project. How could I turn my back on such brilliant old Barossa vines. The opportunity was irresistible! I love it... and I'm thrilled to introduce to you my 'Barossa Babe.' Tim Burvill

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep purple with a vivid violet hue.
Decanting rewards with brooding aromas of dark berry fruit, briar and fragrant spice with a hint of aniseed.
A succulent full palate, laden with rich juicy blood plum and crushed mulberryfruit up front shadowed by a wave of velvety dark chocolate, coffee bean andclove spice. A further layer of savoury secondary notes flood and fill the palatein the form of quintessential Barossa earthiness and a meaty, smoky complexityfrom barrel fermentation. The underlying natural acidity harmoniously supports, all these powerful elements toward a finish of lingering, fine velvety tannins.
Suits a hearty winter casserole, a premium cut of rare beef or othen/vise servewith a good vintage cheddar.
