Find great fruit, look after it with a light touch. Simple really. 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 is paramount to an enviable cache of old vine fruit sources.
"Always a good drink, and no change here. Blackberry, raspberry, a little char, liquorice and salted beef. Medium-bodied, some grainy tannin, meaty and saline to close. Easy to like." 91pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
GOLD MEDAL 2020 BAROSSA WINE SHOW!
Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
