More about this wine from Barossa Valley, Australia

Giles Cooke, winemaker and Master of Wine is the cofounder of Wild and Wilder wines. While holding such an elite title in the wine biz, Cooke is better known for making wine that is meant to be enjoyed daily at a price point that doesn't require anyone to break into their 401K. After traveling the world and making wine in some of the world's most infamous regions, Cooke brought it back home and settled down in the Barossa Valley.


The Barossa Valley is rightly famed for its red wine production. The Exhibitionist is full of rich plum and damson fruit on the nose. The palate is dominated by rich, ripe red berry flavors that slide into more subtle earthy notes. The juice is aged for 6 months in old French oak barrels, but the oak isn't over the top on the tastebuds but leaves the juice with an elegant and silky long finish, making it a versatile wine!
