A typical gumtree-lined dirt track in the northern corner of Australia’s most famous wine region – the Barossa Valley – is where this wine company began. The owners of St John’s Road are fascinated by the places and personalities hidden among this great winemaking region.
The peace and tranquillity of the cool, crisp Eden Valley is ideally suited to the clean, pure flavours of Riesling. Minimal intervention enables the fruit to speak for itself.
Every summer our Aussie cricketers take to the pitch hoping to take more wickets than the opposition. For a successful spell, the bowler strives to achieve line and length with every ball. Similarly when blending our Cabernet we look for line and length in every barrel; lines of structure and tannin and length of fruit flavour.
Blood & Courage captures the very spirit of the game long after the final whistle has been blown! This classic Barossa Shiraz is a testament to great team work combining ripe, rich fruit from the vineyard, balanced oak integration and skilful winemaking.
The original workhorses of the Barossa tirelessly laboured with the early settlers, clearing scrub to create space for the first vines. This wine is a homage to these forefathers and to the foundations of our celebrated industry. A dense and concentrated palate flows from dark fruits, cherry and blackcurrants into a brooding mix of anise and chocolate.
