The Pious Pioneer Dry Grown Shiraz


2014

As you stand at the Barossa’s Mengler’s Hill lookout and admire the patchwork landscape of the valley below, you will find a memorial to those who made it all possible. The memorial reads thus: “The Barossa was first settled by scattered British families in the early 1840's. They were followed from 1842 onward by large groups of Germans who had fled from their homeland to escape religious persecution”. This wine pays homage to those pioneers who sought a home where they could quietly live their lives centred around their family and their faith. This they did, putting their hand “to agricultural pursuits, but soon they also turned to fruit and grape growing, for which the Barossa has become renowned”. Today Barossa shiraz stands as the most renowned fruit variety of them all, and enjoys a status that would have likely been impossible to achieve without these now ancient, venerable vineyards – some of which are amongst the oldest in the world. As you enjoy this shiraz, be sure to raise a glass to The Pious Pioneer!
