A Barossa Blend

The recent revamp of the Weavers Australian range has been very rewarding and I couldn't wait for the oppurtunity to share this superb blend of grape varieties that define the Barossa valley. Produced by siblings Rolf and Christa Binder, it is an archetypical Barossa red with rich spicy flavours and full body.

A Love Affair With Barossa

Rolf and Christa's parents emigrated to Australia after the Second World War, and like so many immigrants they subsidised their passage by working as fruit pickers when they arrived in Australia. They found themselves picking grapes in the Barossa Valley and fell in love with the old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache grapes and the wines they could produce. The winery they started is now in their childrens' capable hands, with Christa's whites and Rolf's reds achieving international acclaim and recognition. 

Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache

I opted for this blend because I thought it showcased what the Barossa is all about. The Shiraz grapes used are from the very special Hanisch vines that produce grapes with the intensity of flavour and characteristics of pepper and spice. The Grenache comes from the Western Ridge, the most westerly vineyard in the Barossa, and are picked from old vines renowned for their richness. The old dry grown Mataro (also known as Mouvedre), with over a centuries worth of pedigree, brings the tannin, critical for the balance of the wine.

  1. Rolf Binder Heinrich, Barossa

    Rolf Binder Heinrich, Barossa, 2012 75cl

    This blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataró offers juicy red berry and plum which give way to a peppery, chocolatey finish. An extremely interesting wine.
