If you are smitten by big, robust, Barossa shiraz wines then please don’t buy this one.
The Point Barre is made from the Poulsard (aka Ploussard) grape and is a light, delicate almost translucent red wine that gives off aromas of red currants, citrus and saddle leather with a touch of cinnamon. It is not high in alcohol (at a pleasant 12%) and it does not have aggressive tannins.
There is instead a purity and silkiness to this wine that makes it quite ethereal. It matches with just about any food you care to think of. - Importer Note
Tony started his career been working with his father and then studying winemaking at University before spending time in broadening his winemaking experience in Australia.
He then secured vines in one of the most iconic spots in the Jura, namely around the huge "Pupillin" sign in the centre of the Arbois-Pupillin appellation area. From these vines he is currently producing a single Chardonnay cuvee, a delicate Pinot Noir and a light red made from Ploussard (Pupillin is, after all, the world capital of Ploussard).
