Schwarz Meta Grenache 2022
$ 35.00 incl. GST
As fine and elegant as ever, a Grenache for Pinot drinkers. Deep ruby in colour, leading with beetroots, stewed rhubarb, Turkish delight, and the whole bunch component contributing peppercorns. A little talc mineral in there too, plus elements of cola and raspberry lollies. Light and bright on the palate with fine succulent tannins, easy to drink but maintains its presence, with nice length on the finish giving it an air of seriousness.
“Wonderfully complex and engaging, the bouquet shows dark berry, bay leaf, cured meat and toasted almond notes, leading to a gorgeously supple palate that’s expansive and persistent. Well supported by refined texture and fine-grained tannins, finishing long and structured.” 95 points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Schwarz Wine Co. / Barossa Valley, Sa
Fine Tuned, Minimally Handled Wines From Enviable Old Vine Sources
Find great fruit. Handle minimally to allow full expression of vintage and place. A deceptively simple philosophy to raising some phenomenal wines.
Schwarz Wine Co has for some time been at the forefront of contemporary Barossa winemaking, crafting site and vintage transparent wines of perfume, structure, and finely etched detail. The family vineyards provide the backbone of the label, though Jason Schwarz’s relationships with talented growers are paramount to an enviable cache of old vine fruit sources. Touch the fruit lightly, don’t pick too late, keep oak use in check – the house style here is pure and vibrant.
