For more than a quarter of a century E&E Black Pepper Shiraz has earned a reputation as a defining wine of the Barossa Valley, one of the world's most celebrated wine regions. E&E Black Pepper is our winemaker's classification benchmark, for the selection of fruit that exhibit those rare Black Pepper Shiraz characters and concentration of fruit flavors found in exceptional vintage years. A floral bouquet of violet, black cherry, and black pepper spice on a richly textured dark center with powerful fruit intensity and elegance, seamless from start to finish.

Dense and muscular, showing appealing focus to the dark chocolate, blackberry paste, sage and huckleberry flavors, with espresso notes weaving in and out. Cigar box aromas emerge on the finish, where thick tannins offer a dense backbone and a touch of rusticity. Drink now through 2036. 396 cases made, 180 cases imported.

This is a big, oaky Barossa red that's set up for the long haul. For now, the nose is somewhat austere, quietly showcasing ripe dark berries, black olive, mocha and spicy oak. The palate is rich and muscular and showing a bit of alcohol heat. Taut and woody yet nicely structured tannins powerfully pull the plush, silky fruit and savory, herbal notes together. Fans of the classic, old school Barossa style will find this ticks the boxes. Drink 2023-2035.
