2021 Annexus & Concilio 6-pack
It's an exciting day when we have an inaugural release. The Artisans of Barossa came about to share things shaped in our minds and made by our own hands for the enjoyment of others. Often proffered with a simple “I made this, please enjoy”.
In this pack we have the three classic red varieties of the Barossa, in full Single Vineyard expression:
- Annexus Shiraz 2021: Inaugural Release. "In 2021 the Shiraz from one of our key Eden Valley vineyards was of such an exceptional quality that we felt compelled to highlight the site and grower and expand the Annexus range. The vineyard is owned by the Severin family and farmed by the Knight family in the Mount McKenzie sub region of Eden Valley, home to beautiful big gum trees and ancient, rocky granitic soils. The vineyard has long been a key resource for blending components of our Shiraz wines, adding that all important Eden Valley lift, spice, plush blue-fruit and mouthwatering acidity." Tim Duval. 95 Points, James Suckling.
- Annexus Grenache 2021: The first Annexus. Debut vintage from 2013 with an 1858 planted Eden Valley vineyard. "In 2021 we ... are proud to release it as a single vineyard expression. A long lived, complex grenache of the highest quality." Tim Duval. 94 Points, Kasia Sobiesiak, The Wine Front
- Annexus Mataro 2021: Debut vintage in 2016. The first straight varietal Matoaro by John Duval. "After working with the vineyard’s custodians the Scholz family in Light Pass since 2003, we finally felt conditions were right to recognise this centenarian vineyard. A true expression of place and vintage, the Annexus Mataro expresses all the earthy structural notes we have come to love from this variety. The 115 year old dry grown bush vines are always low yielding, but the cooler, elegant ’21 vintage has produced a wine of lifted spicy, savoury aromatics, a precise focused palate and a wine suited to pairing with slow cooked and flavour rich dishes. " Tim Duval. 93 Points, James Suckling.
- Concilio Shiraz 2021: Concilio: a coming together of two distinctive sub regions of the Barossa ~ Marananga and Ebenezer, Barossa Valley. A softly textured, full-bodied shiraz. Perfect for enjoying as a youthful and vibrant wine. 95 Points, Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot.
