Barossa is the birthplace of Shiraz, and the top spot in Southern Australia where all the best wines are from. It's the home of huge wines like Penfolds Grange, Elderton Command and Two Hands, selling for hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. A few months ago, The Wine Buyer found a hidden gem in the 90 point Wine Advocate rated Rouseabout Rousey Shiraz 2012.

Showcasing the outstanding 2012 in Southern Australia, the Wine Spectator gave concise praise stating "weather conditions were close to ideal that year, with vintners in South Australia and Victoria harvesting their grapes with little difficulty. Many of the resulting wines are impressive for their intensity but also graceful in style thanks to the mild growing season."

Rating
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Shiraz opens with notes of baked blackberries, cassis and dark chocolate with licorice and tar nuances. Medium-bodied, itís more fresh and lively in the mouth than the nose suggests, bursting with black fruit flavors supported by rounded tannins and lively acid, finishing with very good persistence. Drink it now to 2018+." The Wine Advocate, 90 Points

Wine maker notes
Rouseabout Rousey pays tribute to the historic farming past of Southern Australia, and modern wine-making of today. The Barossa Valley was first settled by German and English immigrants in 1842, who worked their land as mixed farms. They produced wheat, wine and wool in an effort to survive. The region soon became recognized for its wine production, with the Barossaís Mediterranean climate ideal for grape growing. While the Barossa may be famous for wine today, many of the vignerons maintain a flock of sheep as an added source of income and a way to maintain their vineyards. Shearing sheds are a prevalent part of the landscape, where the Rouseabout or "Rousey" still actively works today.
