Lucid is the theme for this release – structured, perfumed, a lovely line of fruit. Plums, blue and black berries on the nose which continue to the palate, over coffee and a definite violet floral note. Tannins are fine and ripe which keep things fresh and moreish, not a palate overwhelming style by any means. Power and freshness here, as is this house’s theme.
“A touch of coffee-like flavour but it’s essentially fruit-driven and bold, its heart of blackberry wrapped in chicory and liquorice. Mouth-filling but mannered. Supple tannin draws the strings in a casual manner. Fruit really is to the fore from start to finish. The door isn’t closed; Barossa shiraz is open for viewing, and on clear display.” 92 points, Campbell Mattinson, 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.
