Soul Growers was formed in 1998 by the experienced winemaker Paul Heinicke with the addition of award-winning winemaker Stuart Bourne, and quickly gathered a strong following in their domestic, Asian and North American markets. Most of their dedicated team members are 5th generation descendants from the first grape-growing families who settled in the Barossa valley. They are fortunate to work with Old Vine, Survivor, Centurion and Ancestor vines, some being over 130 years old, and their goal is to let the unique character of these vineyard sites across the Barossa valley shine through in their wines. Where nature provides, they only guide. With this in mind, they strive to make sure Soul Growers wines emphasise the regional and varietal flavours of their beloved Barossa Valley. The essence of what they strive for is to ensure a lifestyle that is good for the Soul; wine, food, family, music, mates and fun.
Soul Growers 106 Vines Mourvedre 2017
Deep, rich and dark colour with purple hues. The nose subdued which opens up after a decantering with berry fruit, dusty oak and touch of violets. The palate is big and upfront with berry fruits, fine tannin and silky smooth finish.
In the 1880’s a vineyard of Mourvedre was planted on the outskirts of the Barossa in light sandy soils over clay. Once a majestic vineyard today there are only 106 vines remaining after encroachment from urban development. These vines have show resilience and tenacity to survive over 125 years to produce a wine that is pure history. The very Soul of the Barossa! Aged for 18 months in 100% Second Use APJ American Oak
