Our highly esteemed VSV (Very Special Vineyard) wines are only made in exceptional years and when winemakers select a single vineyard that represents the upmost quality and individual character of the Barossa region. The wines are a celebration of our growers’ consistent dedication and their special pockets of land.
Year upon year, our committed growers nurture over 700 blocks of land and strive to produce superior fruit that will be considered for the VSV range.
“From old vine Shiraz planted in 1885 in Ebenezer, to a rare and intense Shiraz from Eden Valley, to a unique Cabernet Sauvignon from the Barossa Valley floor - each VSV wine has subtle nuances that can be traced back to their single vineyard origins,” says Tim Dolan, Senior Winemaker.
The VSV range is exceptionally special, shaped through collaboration between winemakers and growers and crafted by knowledge passed down through generations.
The McCarthy Shiraz
The grapes for this wine come from grower Dr. Mike McCarthy in the Bethany sub-district of the Barossa Valley. Intensely coloured with a black core and bright red hue, this wine exudes aromas typical of the Bethany sub-district. Aromas of chocolate, dark plum and mocha fill the glass with a hint of toasty oak in the background. The palate is long and intense with fine tannins coating the mouth. An opulent, chocolaty finish makes this wine a rich powerhouse with classic Barossa Shiraz characteristics. This wine can be cellared with confidence for another 10 – 16 years.
The Hongell Shiraz
This powerful and distinctive wine is sourced from a small block of sustainable Shiraz vineyards grown by Ian and Daniela Hongell on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley. The vineyard sits on red brown earth over weathered ancient rock and produces low-yielding fruit of rich intensity.
The wine's colour is deep with a bright edge leading to a bouquet of dark plums and mixed spice. The palate shows typical richness and is harnessed beautifully by the tannins from the iron stone rich soil. The result is a remarkable red wine with a great sense of place and a long, stylish finish.
The Carey Shiraz
Rod & Jenny Carey’s Lyndoch vineyard was established in 1997. The site boasts red brown earth over weathered rock and is nestled in a sheltered gully in the region’s western ranges protected from the afternoon sun and cooled by reap gully breezes. The wines from this site yield the benefits of this unique position.
The wine's colour is a deep red purple with a black core and exhibits aromas of satsuma plum, blueberries and subtle French oak. The palate delivers layers of plum, cherry and dark chocolate leading to fine powdery tannins on the finish.
