Gibsons Barossa Vale Shiraz 2001
Gibson''s Barossa Vale Wines is a small family owned winery
Gibson's Barossa Vale Wines is a small family owned winery nestled at the northern end of the Barossa Valley in South Australia. A specialist producer of limited quantities of premium table wines, it is fast garnering a reputation as a reliable producer of richly flavoured and complex wine.
Owned by Rob Gibson and wife Anne, the tiny operation produces a mere 4000 cases of wine. Fruit is sourced from predominantly estate grown fruit with a small amount coming from contracted grower fruit for added diversity come blending time.
From pruning through to budburst, flowering, fruit-set, veraison, harvest, fermentation, pressing, barrel aging, blending to bottling, the whole 'winegrowing' process is carefully tended by Rob Gibson. His university education in both oenology and viticulture, combined with his 23 years experience at the prestigious Penfolds Wines and a natural curiosity of all things, have led to an intimate understanding of the many factors that can influence the creation of wine. The wines crafted at his small 'BarossaVale' estate are a reflection of this accumulated knowledge, experience and natural curiosity.
