Christian's Journey is an excellent example of premium regional wine based on grape varieties that excel in the Barossa. Traditional winemaking and minimal processing are employed to ensure the purity, integrity, and texture, capturing the fruit's full potential, resulting in complex and fruit-driven wines. These techniques help capture the grape's unique characteristics and the subtleties derived from the different soils of individual vineyards.
Christian's Journey Barossa Shiraz is a showcase for the region's hero variety. We source grapes from specially selected vineyards throughout the Barossa's numerous sub-regions. The grapes are open-fermented and basket-pressed to make a classic example of honest, hand-made Shiraz. Two years' maturation in oak barrels delivers the balance, depth and structure expected from Australia's pre-eminent wine region.
