Big time aromatics here, varietal black cherry over pepper and some alluring meaty/bacon character. An array of black fruits on the palate, a sweet and saline interplay, brambly even but ultra fresh. Maintains fineness of persona over so much fruit power, with a fresh acid driven finish over fine ripe tannin and stony mineral. Wines such as this show just what an exciting and pleasurable variety this can be.
” Saucy spices, cinch of stalk and smoke, blackberry and boysenberry. Medium bodied, grainy and stalky, but with nutty and plump bramble fruit, cool acidity and a pleasant spray of amaro herbs in the aftertaste. Lovely wine. Good now, likely better later.” 92+ points, Gary Walsh, www.winefront.com.au
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.
