The wine is full-bodied yet balanced to the point of elegance.
About The Wine
The Magnolia vineyard forms the backbone of the excellent Eperosa range made by Barossa born-and-bred, Brett Grocke.
Originally planted back in 1896, Magnolia is an imporant site in the history of the Barossa Valley. This single block wine celebrates these original plantings.
Each vine is tended by hand, each berry meticulously selected for the blend. Once you taste the finished product, you'll see it was well worth the painstaking process. Grocke says, "The combination of organic farming and 121 year old vines has resulted in a wine of brilliant fruit purity, depth and complexity."
This is Barossa Shiraz in full robe. It's rich, concentrated and epic in volume.
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.
