St John’s Road LSD – Lagrein Shiraz Durif 2016
LSD is a electric blend of Lagrein, Shiraz and Durif sourced from three sub-districts within the Barossa region. Following harvest the parcels were fermented separately, spending between 7–12 days on skins, before being pressed to a combination of French oak Hogsheads and Barriques for 20 months maturation. A brightly coloured, and intensely fruit flavoured red wine. Enough to alter your state of mind? Maybe not. Groovy? Stop it. But definitely tasty enough to deliver your taste buds an intensely pleasurable high. We recommend you enjoy LSD liberally, with a group of very close friends
After managing a B&B in the south of France, Martin and Vivien Rawlinson were inspired to establish St John’s Road in 2001, with a vision to produce full flavoured, yet elegant, wines which reflect the essence of the Barossa.
Custodianship of St John’s Road now rests with Phil Lehmann, Jonathon Hesketh, Dale Wyman and a variety of Barossa wine growing families. Their aim is to uphold Martin and Vivien’s vision of producing wines that are not only true to the Barossa, but also the sub districts and vineyards they are grown in.
