2017 Butchers Block Red
Named in honour of our family’s original use for the building that now houses our Cellar Door, the Butchers Block Red is a structured, fruit-driven & medium bodied wine. A crowd-pleasing style of wine that offers excellent value for money.
A medium-bodied palate with red and black berries. Layers of spice, dark plum, cassis and berry fruit adorn the palate – pleasantly held together by fine tannins. Smooth & delicious.

JAMES HALLIDAY’S TOP 100 WINES
“Shiraz, grenache and mataro sourced from some of the 150yo vines on the estate. The price is extremely low for a wine with such history. Red, blue and black berry fruits are woven together by a gently savoury film of tannins and subtle oak justifying the choice to drink it now or much later”.
“The embodiment of modern Barossa SGM, uniting the juicy persona of classic old vines with the crunchy tang of an al dente harvest and the fragrant, herbal lift of strategically deployed whole bunch fermentation. The result is playfully enticing, bucket loads of fun and eminently tapas-ready.”
“Medium to full red to brick-red colour with the merest tinge of purple, the bouquet is subtle and earthy with spicy notes and a plummy edge. It’s admirably fruit-driven. Peppery mataro is evident. The wine is medium-weight at best and savoury, with some forward-development evident. It’s ready now, fairly mellow, beautifully balanced and very pleasant drinking.”
