A fresh and perfumed nose, violets the leading impression over musk and blue fruit. The palate is rounded with great shape and feel in the mouth, and while the acid profile adds freshness and a precision to the flavours, the wine is by no means austere or lacking generosity. Flavour-wise it’s pretty classic Barossa Shiraz, full of black fruits, dried herbs and earth. Works as a young drinker or will certainly reward a few years down.
9 months in barrel, tank tightened and seasoned with 10% whole-bunch. This is an easy going Shiraz that plays the reductive card of tension well, without any imposition on lilac scents that careen to nori, smoked salumi, tapenade, and beetroot puree. Tightly strung across the finish.” 92 points, Ned Goodwin MW, James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2021
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.
