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 Gobell Single Vineyard Shiraz 2016
The Western side of the Barossa Valley is renowned for producing wines of great concentration, depth and elegance – and this is no exception to that. A 100% Shiraz Deeply coloured, vibrantly aromatic with blue and black fruits – the palate is balanced with incredible length of flavour, finesse and yet has a very firm tannin spine. Will age gracefully for many years to come.
“97 points – James Halliday
50yo vines in Marananga, the usual whole berry 10-day open fermentation with two cultured yeasts at 22-25 degrees C. A single barrel (as for most), thus 100% new or used, here new, most 18-19 months maturation, most French. Old vine super-intensity, yet has the balance needed for a 20-40-year maturation (cork dependent). Black fruits, touches of licorice and tar, very firm, but ripe, tannins. An organoleptic comment is that the format means oak plays a large part in these single barrel flagship wines, this one fighting back with the depth of its full-bodied palate.”
The Gobell family have been a part of the agricultural landscape of the Barossa and beyond for 6 generations. Descended from original settlers, this family take great pride in producing grapes of superb quality that reflect the red loam and clays that abound through the Stonewell and Marananga parishes. From 50 year old vines fermentated traditionally in a small open fermenter, with twice daily plunging and pumping over, prior to basket pressing. Maturated in 100% New French Oak – single barrel produced!
