The team at St Johns Road aim to identify small parcels of exceptional Barossa Shiraz, worthy of the Blood & Courage moniker. Batches are vinified and aged separately right up to the final assembly, such that each component can be treated individually. Parcels of Shiraz from low yielding Kalleske and Schutz family vineyards in Ebenezer and Stonewell, are crushed into a ten tonne open top fermenter for several days of cool temperature vinification. Pumpover regimes and cap work is decided by taste, for optimal extraction of colour and flavours from the skins. Upon completion of malolactic, batches are pressed and filled to a selection of French oak hogsheads for a year's maturation. Alcohol 14.5%
St John's Road has been brought back to life by the places and personalities, the heritage and folklore of Barossa Valley. Every winter weekend, the red blooded players at St Johns Road take to the footy field for a true blue test of skill, strength and character. Blood & Courage is the quintessential Barossa Shiraz, it's all come about because of great comeraderie and kinship between the crew. A play of ripe, rich fruit, balanced oak integration and skillful winemaking, Blood & Courage captures the very essence of ardent and impassioned Barossa team work.
Vibrant, dark opaque ink, purple hues. Strong blackcurrant, dark plum and spicy mulberry fruit, a subtle overlay of dry roasted almonds, cocoa and oak. Full bodied, like Aussie rules, intense flavours of dark berry and plum mixed with Barossa earthiness. Red liquorice and dark chocolate, fresh and lively, rich in texture with subtle oak that shows soft, well integrated tannins. A convincing finish, packed with flavour that lingers long after the last sip!

Welcome to St. John's Road in the picturesque Barossa Valley

St. John’s Road has been resurrected. Purchased by Adelaide wine identity, Alister Mibus and some friends, including talented winemaker Kim Jackson, Barossa label St John’s Road has been revitalised in every sense of the word. Inspired by the wonderfully rich heritage of the Barossa Valley, St John’s Road has been brought to life by the places, personalities and tales of this great region. The quirky new packaging embraces this tale through fresh eyes. While winemaking consistency has been maintained by established winemaker Peter Schell, St John’s Road winemaker since 2005, Kim Johnston, talented winemaker of Henry’s Drive and Shirvington, now joins Peter in the winemaking team.

 St Johns Road

Passion for St John’s Road and its possibilities dictates everything, from the vineyard selection of some of the best parcels of Barossa Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mataro and Eden Valley Riesling, right through to the hours at the tasting bench to bring those parcels together. St. John's Road invite you to travel down an exciting path, the gumtree lined dirt track that is St John’s Road. In re-launching St. John’s Road, the proud new owners are realising a childhood dream to run a premium wine company smack bang in the middle of one the world’s great regions. The aim is to make wines that excite and delight the people that drink them.

This simple statement serves also as the driving philosophy which culminates in the range of wines. The peace and tranquillity of the cool, crisp Eden Valley is ideally suited to the clean, pure flavours of Riesling. Minimal intervention enables the fruit to speak for itself. The Peace of Eden is a piece of Eden.

The owners of St. John’s Road, a motley bunch themselves, have selected various parcels of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. A traditional blend of classic Barossa grape varieties create the GSM blend, resulting in a very approachable wine with silky soft texture, mouth filling fruit sweetness across the front palate and enticing savoury flavours to follow. Motley Bunch celebrates today’s Barossa Valley and it’s mix of different people, cultures and styles.

Every Saturday in summer our Aussie cricketers take to the pitch hoping to take more wickets than the opposition. For a successful spell, the bowler strives to achieve line and length with every ball. Similarly when blending Cabernet, St Johns look for line and length in every barrel; lines of structure and tannin and length of fruit flavour. Line & Length captures the very spirit of the game long after the final wicket has been taken.

Every winter weekend the red blooded players of St Johns Road take to the field for a true blue test of skill, strength and character. This classic Barossa Shiraz is a testament to great team work combining ripe, rich fruit from the vineyard, balanced oak integration and skilful winemaking. Blood & Courage captures the very spirit of the game long after the final whistle has been blown.
