Overview

The Ebenezer range pays tribute to the many generations of growers who have painstakingly nurtured their vineyards through good years and bad since settlement. Without their persistence and strength many of the great vineyards of the Barossa Valley would be lost today. Remember, we use parcels of Shiraz that only just miss out on E&E and the Cabernet Sauvignon is made from the best vineyards.

Winery Tasting Notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced from up to 50 year old vines from the northern part of the Barossa Valley. The wine has fantastic richness and generosity due to the low cropping level from this year. To add to the longevity of this wine, it has been matured in French and American barriques for 24 months and further bottle aged for 18 months prior to release.

Colour

Vibrant deep red with a purple hue.

Aroma

There are intense aromas of blackberry and blueberry fruits, liquorice and dark chocolate.

Palate

The nose leads to a layered palate of blackberries and savoury spices. A concentrated mid-palate is balanced by a fine, elegant finish. A great example of Barossa Valley Shiraz.

Cellaring

This elegant 2008 vintage should be enjoyed on special occasions, and allow you to cellar for 10 years or more.

Food Matching

Perfectly matched with Mediterranean lamb dishes.

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.
