Expert Reviews

Made using the traditional method, and is, as one would expect, very complex, with flavours of plum, mocha and even a touch of dark chocolate; the finish has been carefully managed so that it is not heavy or sweet. One of the best examples at the present time. Rating 94 - Drink by 2014 James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2013

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant deep red, with a purple hue.

Aroma

Aromas of lifted cherry, chocolate and spice are balanced with a touch of oak.

Palate

Very ripe and mouth-filling, with a fine mousse and long fruit finish. A touch of sweetness is balanced by the fresh acidity. Very layered and complex.

Food Matching

Enjoy as an aperitif, Christmas turkey, duck confit, strong cheeses or bacon and eggs for brunch! Also good with light style desserts.

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.
