About The Wine
Brett Grocke moved to a new shed to make his wines in 2016.
What he hadn't planned on was that the wild yeasts he had relied on for almost a decade to ferment his wines wouldn't come with him.
What resulted was plenty of stuck ferments and a lot of wine was lost. Lessons learnt the hard way.
What we have here is a 'Meld' of the best finished wines from the vintage. Old vine Mataro, Grenache and Shiraz at a steal.
Gary Walsh awarded it 94 points and it's a lovely warming red wine to drink.
Eperosa is Brett Grocke's heart and soul.
Grocke is a fifth generation born and raised Barossa viticulturalist/winemaker. Eperosa is the vessel through which he tells the stories of the small patches of the Barossa which he has cared for his whole life. He works with long-established vineyards planted on ancient soils and channels the regional warmth, richness and power of the Barossa with a deft artist's touch.
These wines are honest, robust and made with minimal intervention. A true representation of the modern Barossa with old vines and a rich family heritage as the backdrop.
Grocke's star is on the rise, being named James Halliday's Winemaker of the Year for 2021.
