A Taste of Barossa
10 in stock
In total, we’ve shipped 18 wines from three small independent producers, to offer a sense of both the quality and variety of wine from the region. These wines, exclusive to Substrata in the UK, exude the joyful warmth of the region, and will help us through the coldest and greyest parts of the English winter.
This six pack offers an introduction to all three growers, and a taste of six single varietal reds; three with long traditions in the Barossa Valley – Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro; and three that are little planted and rarely found – Aglianico, Trousseau and Cinsault.
Hayes Stone Well Shiraz 2019: Dark berried fruit, with some peppery spice and hints of vanilla
Hayes Grenache 2020: Just 400 (numbered) bottles made. Never previously exported. Very low yielding year makes for a super concentrated Grenache, with deep dark fruit
Izway Mataro 2019: Ripe plum, black cherry and fig notes. Dark, floral and spicy
Izway Mates Aglianico 2020: Unoaked and deep purple in the glass. Flavours of orange rind, Campari and bitter herbs
Smallfry Pimpernel Trousseau 2021: Tangy red fruit, underpinned by a mushroom-y earthiness and a soft, herbal quality – mint or lemon balm
Smallfry Starry Starry Night Cinsault 2021: Light, ripe and juicy, bursting with bright red fruits – strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate.
