Some of the country’s most iconic red wines were born in the Barossa. Rich, bold and quintessentially Australian – start with the top examples here.

      A historic and beautiful landscape capable of producing wines of supreme excellence, the Barossa is synonymous with red wine. 

  • 2015 Henschke Keyneton Euphonium Shiraz Cabernet 

  • This bold shiraz cabernet blend leads with aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and cassis, followed by herbal notes, red fruits and spices. The palate has great purity, balance and texture forming a delicious mouthfeel, while velvety tannins provide length and complexity.

  • 2016 St Hugo Collection Barossa Shiraz

  • A complex Barossa shiraz with lifted aromas and spicy blue fruit flavours, its fine-boned tannins adding a pleasing texture. While drinking beautifully now, this wine will age effortlessly.

  • 2018 Schild Estate Barossa Valley Shiraz 

  • A classic Barossa style, with aromas that match the wine’s dark-ruby appearance. You’ll note blood plums, mulberries and other bramble fruits on the nose, with hints of dark chocolate and pepper. The fruit flavours show early and continue rolling in waves, all bordered by a fine tannin frame.
