Unmistakably a boutique wine as only 32 rows of vines, which were planted in 1975, produce the superb St Jakobi Shiraz. Granted, this wine may be new to many however, Wayne Dutschke was awarded 'Barossa Winemaker of the Year 2010' by his very own peers in the Barossa Valley which is some accolade given the strength of Barossa producers…
94 Points - Wine Spectator "Ripe, concentrated and beautifully shaped. A rich panoply of cherry, berry, plum, mineral and licorice that sails on and on. Balanced with just enough juicy acidity to keep it honest. Smoothly integrated oak and refined tannins."

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.
