Discover the grape variety: Jurançon noir
Jurançon noir is a grape variety that comes from the Agenais region in southwestern France. It is a cross between malbec and folle blanche. Although it is quite similar to the white Jurançon, it is not the black form of the latter. Its bunches are compact and short, medium-sized and cylindrical-conical. Its berries are spherical-ellipsoid in shape. They are attached to short pedicels that are warty and strong. The skin is dark black and has a strong bloom. This variety has an average budding time and is hardy, vigorous and fertile. It gives a regular production, but it must be pruned short so that it does not quickly become exhausted. It fears grey rot, mildew, drought and grape worms. Jurançon Noir makes common, slightly alcoholic and lightly colored wines. Vinified as a rosé, it produces fruity and lively wines.

The wine region of Barossa
Barossa is one of the six wine-producing zones of South Australia, and arguably the most recognized name in the Australian wine industry. Barossa wines have attracted more international awards than any other region in the country. It is divided into two sections: the western Barossa Valley (effectively the Warmer valley floor) and on the eastern side the cooler, higher altitude Eden Valley, both of which have a distinct Geographical Indication (GI) formalized in 1997. Grapegrowing conditions vary immensely across the wider Barossa zone and this is reflected in the markedly different wine styles produced here.
The wine region of Australie du Sud
South Australia is one of Australia's six states, located (as the name suggests) in the south of the vast island continent. It's the engine room of the Australian wine industry, responsible for about half of the country's total production each year. But there's more to the region than quantity - countless high-quality wines are produced here, most from the region's signature Grape, Shiraz. These include such fine, collectible wines as Penfolds Grange, Henschke Hill of Grace, Torbreck The Laird and d'Arenberg The Dead Arm.
