CREATING SOMETHING SPECIAL
Introducing Tribus Wines – a dynamic, boutique wine producer located within South Australia’s Barossa Valley.
sourcing the best fruit to create the best wine
We are proud to produce our wines from the best of the vintage, picking the finest quality fruit at the ideal time, both from the Valley’s floor and, more recently, from the Eden Valley to supplement our wine’s palate. Meanwhile, basket pressing forms a large part of our vintage process with a very hands-on approach, producing a softer, rounder wine.

Tribus Wines Shiraz 2021, Barossa Valley.
Should you jump on this, good choice, give it a long decant, or better yet, another year two in bottle. I opened it Friday, finished it tonight, and it was still on the up.
Wine reviews: The Barossa's secret powerhouse (indaily.com.au)
Stylishly labelled in black, with its key information pointing to its Hoffmann Vineyard source, specifically the Mickan Block that is much revered by the fraternity of connected winemakers. Firstly the colour – a magenta/black vibrancy. Eye-catching. The aroma is pure Hoffmann territory: great, dark, ripe Shiraz with oak that allows the fruit front and centre position. Nose and palate in harmony, a sense of freshness even at maximum ripeness, with a minerally feel in the mouth, structurally solid and chewy yet full of energy and palate excitement. Very smartly crafted from start to finish.

The 2021 Barossa Valley Shiraz is a big, bold wine using grapes that were hand-harvested from the youngish Mickan Block off the Hoffmann family’s Dimchurch Vineyards - which produce fruit for some of the region's big names. This is a dark, rich wine with ripe fruit and a chewiness on the palate. I would be cellaring this one for a couple of years, at least.
The 2022 Tribus Grenache is much more immediately accessible with red and black fruit flavours and some impressive tannin structure. Very stylish, this one.
My favourite of the trio, however, was the 2022 Tribus Mataro Shiraz, a compellingly complete wine for one so young. The two varieties are as one; beautifully balanced and medium-bodied with spice hints, and this proved very food friendly when paired with a steak and kidney casserole.
A comfortable 96 points.
All are impressively presented with eye-catching pink wax bottle seals that certainly stand out from the crowd.
