Barossa Valley Unleashed Reds Pack

A new look at the Barossa with six raw, punchy and deadset delicious small batch reds!



About The Pack

Here's a great way to explore some  of the more exciting producers in the Barossa Valley. 

These are Barossa reds made in tiny batches with a serious wild side. 


2016 Ruggabellus Timaeus

The detail involved in an Abel Gibson blend is second to none, the finesse and craftsmanship comes to the fore in a warmer vintage like 2016.

Timaeus is the Grenache-dominant blend in the Ruggabellus stable. It's a lither, more streamlined wine than some of the Shiraz or Mataro blend siblings.

Built on fine bones of tannin and a refreshing backbone of acidity, this is  a beaytiful modern expression of a Rhone-styled blend from the Barossa Valley.

Gorgeous stuff, and as with all of the Ruggabellus wines, rare as hen's teeth.

2017 Forlorn Hope Songs from Mars SG

The wines from the hands of Matthew Rorick have a V8 engine in a sports car frame.

His first foray into the world of Barossa Valley reds has produced a red wine of raw magnetism. A classic blend of Shiraz and Grenache from old dry-grown vines, this is the essence of the Barossa Valley mainlined through one of the USA's cult winemaking stars.

There's a deftness to the wine. Deep pools of quintessentially Barossan fruit with an energy that tugs you back to the glass.

Only 60 dozen were made. The asking price is ludicrous. Jump quick if you want to catch this rare bird before it flies the coup.

2016 Schwarz Meta Mataro

The Schwarz Meta series are classic Barossa varietals made with a modern approach.

Here, Mataro finds complexity and an element of freshness through the addition of some whole bunches and minimal intervention from winemaker Jason Schwarz.

This 2016 release has been given excellent reviews from the likes of James Halliday (95 points) and Gary Walsh (92+ points) and is an excellent option for those looking for a more lifted and exotic version of this often overlooked Barossan workhorse variety.

2017 Frederick Stevenson Hongell Grenache

Steve Crawford works with some great old-vine vineyards across the Barossa Valley.

The BV Hongell Grenache comes from a vineyard just to the south of the historic Barossa sub-region of Tanunda. It was made with 40% whole bunches and zero new oak. Steve looks to capture the personality of each vineyard he works from, here he's done a top notch job.

It's Barossa Grenache with a different look. It's light, crunchy, and wickedly drinkable. Grenache fans with a penchant for original expressions of the variety should get on this.
