Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

The team at St Johns Road aim to identify small parcels of exceptional Barossa Shiraz, worthy of the Blood & Courage moniker. Batches are vinified and aged separately right up to the final assembly, such that each component can be treated individually. Parcels of Shiraz from low yielding Kalleske and Schutz family vineyards in Ebenezer and Stonewell, are crushed into a ten tonne open top fermenter for several days of cool temperature vinification. Pumpover regimes and cap work is decided by taste, for optimal extraction of colour and flavours from the skins. Upon completion of malolactic, batches are pressed and filled to a selection of French oak hogsheads for a year's maturation.
Vibrant, dark opaque ink, purple hues. Strong blackcurrant, dark plum and spicy mulberry fruit, a subtle overlay of dry roasted almonds, cocoa and oak. Full bodied, like Aussie rules, intense flavours of dark berry and plum mixed with Barossa earthiness. Red liquorice and dark chocolate, fresh and lively, rich in texture with subtle oak that shows soft, well integrated tannins. A convincing finish, packed with flavour that lingers long after the last sip!
