This is the kind of wine that gets me really excited! Year in year out it's my favourite wine from Abel Gibson. Mataro dominant with decreasing amounts of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. Medium bodied and uber complex. Meaty and gamey characters from the Mataro are supported in an alternate fashion by the peppery Syrah, blue fruited Grenache and the spicey Cinsault. You have to try it for yourself to get the full experience that is Efferus! - Chris L

Our planet is billions of years old. It wobbles beautifully around the sun. Our land is thousands of millions of years old. It has been exposed longer than most. Our valley is hundreds of millions of years old. The story of people in this valley is thousands of years old. The story of crafting wine in this valley is an impressive but mere 160 years old.

We live in Australia. We live in a wide and shallow valley suspended in an ancient mountain range. We live in the Barossa valley.

Many thousands of years of weather is etched into the rocks here. The seemingly endless flow of air from west to east, the powerful sun from east to west, the winter rains and the continental ‘northerlies’ that dominate our summers have all weaved their way into the landscape. The Ngadjuri and Peramangk roamed here for thousands of years. They knew much of the subtlety of this place. As vintners we will endeavor to explore and respect this subtlety, explore and respect the rhythms, the unique character …..the natural flow of this place.
