The Barossa Valley isn't exactly known for producing light and bright crunchy reds, but it takes innovative producers like Steve Crawford at Frederick Stevenson to push those conventions around. In Steve's words, "this is the wine you just drink - smash against the wall - and walk out." This is Cinsault and Syrah from the biodynamically farmed Ahrens vineyard in the Vine Vale Barossa sub-region, with 15% conventionally but sustainably farmed Grenache from the Hongell vineyard on the Western side of the Barossa. It's bright and perky, a little untamed and loaded with personality. The perfect entry into the world of Frederick Stevenson.

What it Tastes Like

Sour cherry and rhubarb. Lipsmacking stuff - definitley 'a-typical' of the Barossa style. Bright crunchy, nearly ripe strawberry. Soft garden herbs and baking spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon. Pretty cool. Crushed rock and mineral laced tannins to close. Chewy and charismatic.
