Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts James Halliday April 2017
Given the provenance, is freakish value, its quality simply underlining that fact. It has purple and black fruits sewn together by firm tannins that add to the length of the wine (and its structure). I wouldn't hesitate to cellar the wine for 15+ years.
92 pts Decanter Sept 2017
This wine punches above its weight - available for under £15, the luscious black cherry and hedgerow fruits do a good job of making it seem twice the price. Sultry black pepper, sweet spice, baked strawberry, currants and liquorice all mingle in the swirling, inky sea. This is deep, but is supple rather than dense. Drinking Window 2017 - 2022



Winemaker Notes

The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvédre (Mataro), with the proportions of each variety varying from vintage to vintage.
Like medals at a children's sporting event, when we blend a wine we like each parcel to have recognition; its own chance to feel proud of its contribution to the team. Here, each varietal is vinified & aged individually in French oak barrels before the final blending process. Shiraz adds the generous mouthfeel, Grenache the spice and cherry-like sweetness and Mourvèdre the backbone, savoury edge and fragrance. Balance is crucial, each varietal's contribution is evident yet nothing competes for your attention.
