Schwarz Meta Shiraz 2021
$ 35.00 incl. GST
Typically the most structured of the Shiraz wines made by Schwarz. Elegantly complex, a broad spectrum of aromatics and flavours here – beef stock and pan juices, coffee and cocoa, and a Bouquet Garni herbal thread from the whole bunch component. Fruit-wise, firmly in the blue fruits spectrum of blueberries and damson plums (Schwarz assure the label colour is incidental rather than deliberate power of suggestion! Eden Valley fruit has a big hand in this.) There’s a gentle but persistent tannic framework, a slightly finer release than some vintages. Brains over brawn here, but no lack of concentration or length, and a definite air of sophistication.
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.
