The Barons of Barossa Story
The wine fraternity Barons of Barossa was founded in 1975 by a group of well-known Barossa wine industry personalities. George Kolarovich (Barossa Co-operative, Kaiser Stuhl) was elected as the first Grand Master. Other founding Barons were Wyndham Hill-Smith (Yalumba), Colin Gramp (Orlando), Bill Seppelt (Seppelts), Sir Condor Laucke, Bruce Hoffmann, Peter Lehmann and Cyril Henschke. The current Grand Master is Stephen Henschke. The Fraternity is administered by the Grand Council which is elected biennially. Membership of the Fraternity is by invitation and is offered to persons who have made an outstanding contribution to the Barossa. New Barons are inducted into the Fraternity in a colourful ceremony and membership is for life. The focus of the Barons of Barossa has remained unchanged since its foundation and it continues to proudly and enthusiastically support Barossa wine, viticulture, gastronomy, heritage and the arts. Today the Barons of Barossa are a recognised part of the fabric of Barossa culture and continue to play an important philanthropic and symbolic role. The Barons' motto is "Glory to Barossa".

How's it taste?
Very pale with platinum hues. The bouquet is intensely floral; aromas of apple blossom, lychee and rosewaterabound with subtle herbaceous accents of Kaffir lime leaf and Holy basil. The palate is delicate and crisp with brightcitrus flavours of lemon and lime complemented by fresh quince and a slate-like mineral undertone. The racy naturalacidity imparts linearity and length with a crisp, clean finish and exceptional persistence of flavour.

Formed in 1975, Barons of Barossa is a philanthropic group of regional icons championing the wine, viticulture, food and broader culture and history of the Barossa. This wine from the cooler Eden Valley region of the Barossa zone was made by John Hughes of Rieslingfreak. The aromas are pure nostalgic whimsy - star jasmine and elderflower, heirloom apples - really fragrant and distinctive, freshly squeezed lemonade and Bickford’s lime cordial. On the palate it is crisp and fresh with dazzling acidity, dry but with just a whisper of fruit sweetness. There’s lime leaf and juicy white peaches with river pebble minerality. At only 10.7% alcohol it is perfect for sipping through long summer lunches filled with crunchy salads and seafood from the barbeque.
