About

About The Wine

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, Syrah and Mourvedre from the biodynamically farmed Ahrens vineyard in Vine Vale with a portion of 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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

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. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

40% Cinsault, 29% Shiraz, 23% Grenache and 8% Mourvedre A light, fun expression of the vintage that was. Cinsault's light fragrance & crunchy acidity, with the deeper, fuller and spicier expression of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre to round it out. Mainly from the Ahrens's Vine Vale property (Cert. BD), 2/3 of the Grenache portion is equally from the Marie Franz and Hongell vineyards (not practiced nor cert. BD).
