This family owned, artisan wine label is one to look out for. Since the inaugural Gnadenberg Road Shiraz and Vermentino release – 2015 vintage. The wine label quickly became a Halliday 4.5 star rating wine label. The vineyard is located just over one kilometre from Australia’s most iconic single vineyard wine; Henschke Hill of Grace. A stunning setting with a landscape of rolling hills covered with green pastures, and a patchwork of vineyards.
The Garden & Field vineyard has been created in an ancient soil profile of heavy red clay over sandy loam, shale and schist rock matter. While the rainfall in the high ranges of the northern Barossa region is minimal, the moisture holding capacity in the soil structure is it’s secret to concentrated wines of high aromatics and depth.
Vineyard tours and tastings are a memorable experience as the setting takes you back to yesteryear, 1856, when the first stone was placed at the homestead. Stone cottages, corrugated sheds, with gravelled roadways are in the heart of the vineyard setting.
Vermentino is an ancient Italian dry white wine variety, offering fresh mineral and citrus flavours; lemon pith, grapefruit with a lip smacking crushed oyster shells. This is a wine with texture and complexity with a front palate of flavour.
Summer afternoon’s with chilled Vermentino accompanying fresh white fish or home made pasta and basil pesto topped with aged parmesan cheddar, is how the Raymond family of the Barossa enjoy this wine.
Exceptional value of $20 per wine in this six pack offer – Enjoy!
