Buy The Colonial Estate Emigre
Fabulous texture with elegant yet subtle notes of crushed cherries, earth, blackberry, chocolate pepper and saddle leather. The tannins are almost melted as with the Exile and there is a superb backbone and lift to the wine before a long bright finish. A beautiful bouquet of cassis, blueberries, raspberry, violet, pepper, smoked meats and eucalyptus bring this wine alive! This wine will evolve beautifully in bottle over the next 10 or so years.
Wine Advocate 92 points - The dense purple-colored 2002 Emigre offers a sweet nose of blackberries, camphor, and smoke. Full-bodied, opulent, elegant, and seamless, it is a big, well-balanced red with wonderful ripeness, nicely-integrated wood, and a long, concentrated mouthfeel. Drink it over the next 8-10 years. (Oct 2005)

Wine maker notes
Émigre is mix of varieties - Grenache, Cabernet and Shiraz, sourced from an array of vineyards across the Barossa. Like Exile the vines are pruned severely and receive two runs of green harvesting finally producing one tonne to the acre. Émigre grapes are then hand picked. The wine receives extreme cold maceration. The wines have their malolactic in new French oak, and are thereafter in the same oak.
