Despite success, Tin Shed are not tempted to increase their production, having chosen to concentrate on creating wines which are articulate and real. All Tin Shed wines are handmade in small batches. Grapes are destemmed but not crushed, cold soaked for several days for inoculation by wild natural yeasts. Batches are treated to long cool vinification with twice daily pump overs and much of individual attention. Upon completion, the musts are passed through an old Wilmes press and settled for a couple of days before racking into individually selected, seasoned or new, French or American oak barrels for a year. The best lots are assembled and returned to oak for a further year of extended maturation.
So named by the Tin Shed winemaking team, the wild bunch, after a few drinks and a think tank, a melting pot of flavours achieved through an assemblage of Shiraz grown to choice vineyards scattered throughout the cool ripening climes of Eden Valley, with a few good barrels of Barossa fruit for funk and spice. Eden Valley ensures a measure of appetizing perfumes and good structure, Barossa contributes palate weight and richness.
An appetizing deep, thick purple colour. A complex lifted nose showing chocolate and forest fruit with distinct cool climate pepper and mint. Sweeter, more complex bouquets of mint, black cherries and currant. Medium bodied with light to moderate tannins, the palate is warm and smooth with lifted spice and floral notes. A wine of length, softness and remarkable balance.

There are some signs of maturity at Tin Shed Estate in the Barossa, but the label is still primarily about encouraging the enjoyment of food and wine

The Tin Shed Wines adventure began in 1997 when Peter Clarke’s passion for food and wine overflowed one night in the company of friend and viticulturist Andrew Wardlaw. Peter is head chef and part-owner of the award-winning Vintners Bar & Grill near Angaston.

The following year, the pair combined their talents in a small tin shed to create their first wine. This Shiraz was mollycoddled from the outset – handpicked and hand nurtured using wild fermentation and minimal additions. The undivided attention the fruit and resulting wine received paid off, with the Single Wire Shiraz receiving accolades from wine lovers and wine writers alike.

Despite the temptation to accelerate production, Tin Shed Wines chose instead to concentrate on creating wines that were subtle and allowed the real character of the vineyard to dominate. Rather than produce larger volumes of one particular wine, Peter and Andrew pooled their expertise and played with a new blend of Mourvedre, Shiraz and Grenache.

The success of this second wine led to other inspired decisions, such as the Wild Bunch Riesling in 2002, again a result of the same techniques – wild ferment, minimal additions and loads of attention. Following this the Melting Pot Shiraz, then one particular “fruit salad” block, inspired the production of the All Day Rosé.

 Tin Shed

Tin Shed Wines now boasts five labels. Each of them demands an equal amount of nurturing, so total production is still limited to 5000 cases each year. These wines were designed to be unique and are continually being hailed as such by those who have the privilege of tasting them.

In 2006, Peter and wife Anne, took sole ownership of Tin Shed Wines. Enter viticulturist/winemaker Nathan Norman, who was attracted to the winery because of its attention to detail. The Tin Shed dream has not faltered over the years. The small team is still intent on mollycoddling its wines, to produce real vineyard flavours that complement food without overpowering it.

"From a relatively small boutique operation, these intriguing wines were tasted from barrel. The 2004 Three Vines, a blend of old vine Mourvèdre, Syrah and Grenache, exhibits a dense ruby/purple colour along with a big nose of tree bark, fresh mushrooms, blueberries, raspberries, Provençal herbs, and garrigue. A complex, 300- liter hoshead-aged, French-styled red, it should drink well for 3-4 years. A stunning offering, the 2005 Melting Pot Shiraz reveals flamboyant aromas of cassis, black pepper, licorice and espresso roast. This medium to full-bodied, pure, rich Shiraz offers another example of the seamlessness of this vintage.

"The 2005 Single Wire Shiraz is dense, opulent and even richer than the Melting Pot with intense flavors, a natural full-bodied texture, and a 40+-second finish. It should drink well for 10-12 years. Lastly, the 2004 Single Wire Shiraz (also tasted from barrel) is certainly outstanding, but it plays second fiddle to its 2005 sibling!" -Robert Parker
