Tasting Notes

The Colonial Estate Explorateur Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

Deep purple with red brick flash around edge. Blackberry fruits with hints of licorice, oak and aniseed. The palate is softly spoken and fruit driven initially with blackberries, plums and licorice notes giving your insight into what is ahead. An approachable mid palate, which is full-flavored, while the fine-grained tannins finish with complex notes of olives, cashew nuts and oak. An alluring finish, which is moreish and smooth, yet has great length.


The Colonial Estate Etranger Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Deep black to purple colour with crimson notes. Blackcurrants and mulberry with minty liquorice which ensure this wine has a classic Cabernet nose finishing with a delightful touch of new oak. Fruit purity and varietal notes of mulberry, plum and blackcurrant, superb ripeness and stunning rich licorice, cedar and spice characters. Firm, fruity tannins provide the backbone, which is well fleshed out and long.


The Colonial Estate Envoy Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2018

Wonderful fruit driven palate feels light despite having significant depth of flavour; the driving force here is red and dark berry fruit, raspberry offers a light touch along with complex notes of spice and white pepper. Smooth and silky finish.Lifted aromas of violet and red berry, black cherry and raspberry.

Technical

The Colonial Estate Explorateur Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018

The vineyards that make up Explorateur are based in the northwestern Barossa Valley. This is a belt of land/terroir that runs from just to the northwest of Tanunda – Marananga, Greenock, Moppa, Ebenezer, and through to Stockwell, just north of Nuriootpa. Cropping levels are kept low to ensure fruit flavour is focus. The same equipment that is accorded to our more expensive wines is made available to Explorateur. Fermentation is French in approach for up to two thirds of the wine made; the rest is vinified in a more Australian way.


The Colonial Estate Etranger Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Grapes were specifically sourced from the area around our favourite sub region of the Barossa – Greenock. Its hard country with the shallow grey sandy soil over red clay producing small bunches of intense, non-herbaceous Cabernet Sauvignon. Cropping levels were low and much of the older vineyards were hand picked and selected by vigneron and winemaker especially for the high fruit intensity of the individual grapes. We use extreme cold maceration to extract as much natural fruit flavour as possible and use open top fermenters and hand plunge keeping our old world winemaking philosophy front of mind during the entire process to ensure only the finest wine is aged in barrel for 12 months prior to final blending and minimal filtration.


The Colonial Estate Envoy Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2018
Envoy is probably the most European in style wine that we make in Australia and has been confused from time to time with a wine from the Southern Rhone. As ever, the grapes are picked and given a French twist in their winemaking to deliver something slightly different. Fermentation is French for up to two-thirds of the wine made the rest vinified in a more standard Australian way. Aged in oak for 12 months then in bottle for an additional 12 months prior to release.
