About The Wine
The Magnolia Road vineyard, originally planted in 1896 in Vine Vale, is lovingly tended with organic practices by wine grower/maker Brett Grocke.
The portion of the vineyard that supplies the fruit for this wine was planted in 1965. These 50+-year-old youngster vines yield impeccable fruit with remarkable concentration. The soft, pulpy heart of Barossa Shiraz is on show here in this top value release.
Just four of the best barrels from this site combined for this bottling. With just a little over 100 cases made and Brett's recent nod as James Halliday's Winemaker of the Year, this exemplary wine will not last long.
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.
