Cuvée Juveniles was created as a ‘Cote Du Rhone’ inspired
bistro wine from the classic Barossa varieties of Grenache,
Mataro (Mourvedre) and Shiraz from mostly old, unirrigated
vineyards. These varieties are the cornerstone of the
Barossa Valley and are intrinsic in the wines that are so easily
appreciated around the world and often referred to as
GSM blends by sommeliers and consumers alike.
After a cold and rainy winter in 2016, the Barossa had one of
its wettest springs on record, replenishing sub-soil moisture
and setting the vineyards up for a healthy summer.
Mild conditions during veraison and light rains in January and
February 2017, were followed by an extended warm, dry
Indian summer, creating perfect ripening conditions through to
April 2017. An outstanding vintage producing bright, aromatic
whites and intense, well-structured reds.
Bold and seductive, this youthful, unoaked blend encapsulates
all that is great in a pure, unseasoned wine. A lively, vibrant
aroma of blackberry, violet and spice. A full, rich mid palate
with a vivacity and energy that this blend always generates.
Ripe, savoury flavours of dark berry fruit and cassis, spiced
cherries, minerals and succulent blueberry fruit all balanced
with fresh acidity and a fine gentle tannin structure.
Dense and vibrant, this wine is drinking superbly but,
as with its predecessors, it will greatly reward those who
choose to give it a few years in the cellar
