Wine maker notes
The Eden Valley skirts the eastern slopes of the Barossa Ranges, and is known for crisp floral Rieslings. Sitting slightly higher than the warmer Barossa Valley, the two sub-regions make up the Barossa, and give local winemakers more variety and interest in their production of outstanding wines. Christa Deans makes all of our white wines. As daughter of Rolf Binder senior who established Veritas Winery, Christa has spent time in the Champagne district of France working with delicate white wines, as well as Wolf Blass as winemaker responsible for whites. Her soft touch and delicacy with the elegance of white wine is truly expressed here, as with all the wines she makes.

Producer
From its inception in 1955, Veritas Winery produced mostly fortified wines as well as the famous ’Bull’s Blood’, a blend of Shiraz and century-old Mataro. Now many years later, second generation winemakers Rolf Binder, and his sister Christa Deans, are leading Veritas winery into the future under the Rolf Binder brand. Together they are producing exceptional wines using only the best Barossa fruit. Rolf Heinrich Binder and his wife, Franziska, arrived in Australia (from Austria and Hungary respectively) in 1950 as part of the large influx of post war immigration to Australia. As payment for the government assistance, they worked with the South Australian railways for three years. During that time they met Elmore Schulz, a train driver and grape grower in the Barossa Valley, and namesake to neighbouring Barossa Valley Estate’s E&E Shiraz. While picking grapes in the Barossa in 1953, the couple met Langmeil Road winemakers, Chris Vohrer and Wilhelm Abel. This meeting proved to set their future. In 1954 they worked a vintage in this winery and subsequently purchased the business in 1955, renaming it ’Veritas’, taken from the Latin quote ”In Vino Veritas” - in wine there is truth. The business name was changed from Veritas to Rolf Binder in 2005 to honour the late Rolf Heinrich Binder who passed away in 2003. Development of the Modern Wine Styles In the 1960s and 70s came the realization of the great riches of the Barossa Valley in old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache. Experiments at Veritas and a number of other, mostly small Barossa wineries followed throughout the 1980s and this led to the release of many exciting old vine varietal blends. Semillon is considered the premium white variety of the Barossa and winemaker, Christa Deans, holds an esteemed position as the producer of benchmark Barossa Semillons. Riesling is also considered superior in the Australian wine industry and the style from the neighbouring Eden Valley is softer and more floral than the seriously steely Rieslings from Europe.
