Winemaker Adam Barton after working for Scarpantoni (McLaren Vale), Rolf Binder (Barossa), Wynns Coonawarra Estate and iconic Bonny Doon (California) wasted no time to complete a winemaking degree at Adelaide University.  Atlas Wines began on a 26-acre block of land, a vineyard planted with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, on the eastern slopes of the Clare Valley. The year was 2007. Adam Barton and Amy Lane made an investment in Clare and an investment in their future. Their vision for Atlas was pretty simple: to produce great wine from the highest-quality fruit from vineyards with exceptional provenance. Adam has come to understand the complexity and diversity of the Clare Valley, and how the unique characteristics of different sites produce fruit with distinctive qualities. It’s these qualities that they have sought to express through the wines they have made. As such, the Atlas house style is a carefully composed mosaic of the region. It is a true boutique producer.

Impenetrable inky black colour with a deep dark red black hue. Pronounced black cherry, blackberry and liquorice aromas waft from the glass followed by vanillin cedar, scorched earth, dried meats and spicy pepper. Rich, densely textured and thick across the palate, opulent flavours of black cherries, ripe blackberries and liquorice flood the mouth. Scorched earth, spicy vanillin cedar, dried meats and blackpepper elements sit beneath. Sturdy tannins have a muscular feel. Excellent depth and power with a long chewy aftertaste. 

Alc/Vol: 14.5%
