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.
“Invariably has a juicy sort of spicy energy, and no change here. Brown twigs, liquorice, dried herb and soy sauce, fresh blackberry. It’s grainy and firm in tannin, dark fruit and blueberry, meaty and spicy flavours, a slight bitterness, and a long and sappy finish. Distinctive.” 94 points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
Opaque core and vibrant purple to the rim. Raspberry and blackberry, boudin noir and dry herb aromatics. Serious concentration of fruit, but supple tannins corral it and keep it flowing with life and lightness. Keeps flowing long and lingers with a bright acid-driven freshness. It will mature beautifully as more savoury ageing characters evolve. Stuart Knox, THE REAL REVIEW, 95 POINTS.
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.
