The Story

Named as a tribute to the early Barossa Lutheran pioneers, many of whom carried Johann as their first name. Their toil, perseverance and conservatism in hardship has meant that the many generations that followed rejoiced in the riches of their prudent efforts. The grenache is just one of those blessings and has been appropriately named after Johann Alfred Zobel, whose 70-year-old vines growing on the banks of the North Para form the base of this wine. Barossa growers traditionally referred to their vineyard as their ‘garden’. The traditions and culture have survived to this day including the winemaking techniques used in this grenache blend. It is produced from low-yielding, old, gnarled, dry-grown bush vines from selected vineyards.
