CONCORDIS is a collaborative winemaking project that unites four Barossa producers – Kaesler Wines, Seppeltsfield Winery, Torbreck Vintners and Two Hands Wines – to create a unique cuvée from one tonne of their finest Shiraz grapes each vintage.

The purpose of the initiative is to give back to the region that has been so supportive of the 4 wineries, with the aim to raise more than $700,000 over the initial 4 years with all proceeds going to a perpetual education fund through Foundation Barossa.

The fund will then provide ongoing financial support and training opportunities in cellar operations and viticulture for financially disadvantaged, local young people, through 2 year traineeships being offered at each of the wineries.

With only 1,600 magnums made annually, CONCORDIS is the perfect collector’s item.

Tasting Note - With an intense, deep purple hue, this wine instantly catches the eye. It has an elegant bouquet of dark chocolate and cherries, with a soft but generous, mouthcoating tannin profile. It’s rich and unmistakably Barossa palate shows hints of dried fruits, cured meats and black berries. The 2016 CONCORDIS is drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve over the next 5 to 10 years.

Producer

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
