The Shiraz fruit for this wine has been selected from 3 separate vineyards located at the northern end of the Barossa Valley. Tended by the Kalleske family, these vines are typically planted in brown loamy sand to clay loams over deep red clay. Being at the northern end of the valley, these vineyards are subject to a harsher, drier growing season than their counterparts in the southern areas of the Barossa Valley. Accordingly, the ‘terroir’ of these 3 vineyards lend themselves to low yielding, intensely flavoured fruit with strong tannin profiles.

The fruit is gently destemmed to open fermenters. Hand pumpovers 2 to 4 times daily ensure maximum colour and flavour extraction. After fermentation, the wine is gently basket pressed to a combination of new French oak hogsheads and seasoned oak. The wine matures gracefully in the temperature controlled barrel store for 20 months before bottling without fining or filtration.

Winery Tasting Notes


The colour has a deep black core with red/purple rim.


An intriguing and complex nose of blueberry and raspberry, chocolate, vanilla, clove and pepper spices.


The silky and richly textured palate is well balanced with the fruit, acid and an excellent tannin profile all in harmony. A long and persistent finish. Excellent cellaring potential.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Cooper Burns is a winemaking partnership of Mark Cooper & Russell Burns, dedicated to producing tiny amounts of handcrafted, small batch, artisan wines from the Barossa Valley. We aim to make wines with soul, individuality and personality that express the qualities of the vineyard, vintage and passion that went in to making the wines.Mark & Russell met during vintage 2003 in California, where, being like-minded individuals, they struck up an immediate friendship. As the days and weeks of a Californian summer and fall went by, it become apparent that Mark & Russell had similar dreams for making their own handcrafted wine. A night of margaritas and tequila in Paso Robles saw the basic framework for Cooper Burns take shape. Details of that night remain hazy, but essentially revolved around low yielding super premium fruit from the Barossa Valley, traditional winemaking methods with minimal intervention and attention to detail, and a belief in what they wanted to do and achieve with the wines. After reaching an accord with their partners, Rachel & Tracy, (lots of begging, pleading, promises and a tantrum or two was required to reach this accord, mind you), it came to pass that Cooper Burns was up and running for vintage 2004.
