Rosé – yes please! A blend of Mataro and Grenache, with a Provençal salmon shade and similar level of dryness. This gives our Provence wines a run for the money, one of Australia’s best examples of the style. Zippy up front, it’s got strawberries and raspberries, a watermelony juiciness, and a zestiness to its acid. It’s got further complexity from its mineral component which lengthens the finish and evokes limestone and chalk. Firmly pushes back on the luscious, fruit sweet reputation of Barossa rosés of old – serious + refreshing = serious refreshment.
“Attractive perfume, spicy and floral, red fruits and a subtle earthiness. Powdery and pretty, blood orange and strawberry, spicy and fresh to close. Gentle, but persuasive charm. Beauty.” 94 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.
