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 Kroehn Single Vineyard Shiraz 2016
This little slice of Eden Valley shows all the greatness of a sub region that sits at elevation above the Barossa Valley Floor. Lifted blue and red fruit on the nose, followed by firm tannin, soft length, subtle oak and a richness that only great vineyards can provide. Will cellar gracefully for many years to come
“20+yo vines from the Eden Valley township. Slightly lighter colour, and likewise body, the result a more elegant style. Juicy black fruits flow across the palate in convincing style. Eden Valley is key for me.”
