Expert Reviews

94 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitSweetly fruited and perfumed, the inviting bouquet shows Black Doris plum, raspberry, mixed spice, olive and cedar characters. It’s succulent, rounded and supple on the palate, packed with delicious fruit flavours, nicely framed by polished tannins. At its best: now to 2027. AU$35.00

How's it taste?

"The Resurrection Shiraz has a fine tannin structure and clean acid line which cuts through a good level of mid palate sweetness. Dark fruit of plum and mulberry, white pepper and hits of rhubarb round out to a long, smooth finish." James Lienert, Winemaker.

About the Resurrection Vineyard:

The St John’s Road 'Resurrection Vineyard' is located in the highly regarded Ebenezer sub-district of the Barossa Valley; an area that has long held reputation to produce powerful and soulful reds. The 20Ha site is Shiraz predominant (>90%) with small pockets of Grenache. Added appeal of this particular vineyard comes from the significant diversity present; a substantial variance in vine age, soil depth, aspect and vine selection has provided the winemaking team with an exceptional palette to work with.

The most elevated point of our Resurrection Vineyard sits at 324m, where the soils are shallow and rocky, producing intensely flavoured fruit from low-yielding blocks. Along the northern boundary a striking 15m soil profile can be viewed overlooking the St Kitts Creek, showcasing the vibrant, red Ebenezer dirt impregnated with ironstone. It is within these deep, rich clay soils that our oldest vines thrive: five acres of twisted, gnarly old Shiraz vines planted during the '30s Great Depression. We liken the preservation of these old vines to 'respecting your elders', with the individual vines cared for year-round by Warwick (Wazza) Murray.

The gentle roll of the Eastern, to South-Western facing slopes provide varying exposure to light and heat during the day, an element of frost protection, and in sections, early ripening vines. These aspects combined add levels of complexity and difference to the St John's Road wines, showcasing the diversity apparent within the Barossa growing region.

Who made it?

After managing a B&B in the south of France, Martin and Vivienne Rawlinson were inspired to establish St John’s Road in 2001, with a vision to produce full flavoured, yet elegant, wines which reflect the essence of the Barossa. The current owners aim to uphold Martin and Vivienne’s vision of producing wines that are not only true to the Barossa, but also the sub districts and vineyards they are grown in. Unquestionably, Barossa is the hero for St John's Road and reds are the main focus, with a suite of Shiraz, Grenache and blends a particular highlight.
