Schwarz Wine Co 'Nitschkte Block' Shiraz 2018

"As far as Barossa shiraz goes, this is benchmark. Plush but nicely taut. A stream of boysenberry fruit and violet scents sashay to a samba of thyme, tapenade and smoked meats. This is smart. Very." 96pts - Ned Goodwin - Wine Companion

More Information

"The economical name is appropriate for a business that started with 1t of grapes making two hogsheads of wine in 2001. Shiraz was purchased from Jason Schwarz's parents' vineyard in Bethany, the vines planted in 1968; the following year half a tonne of grenache was added, once again purchased from the parents. In '05, grape sale agreements with another (larger) winery were terminated, freeing up 1.8ha of shiraz and 0.8ha of grenache." James Halliday

"All the good stuff: dry-grown and fermented under the aegis of wild yeast; a smattering of whole-bunch seasoning (25%), French oak (20% new), conferring poise, freshness and authority. As far as Barossa shiraz goes, this is benchmark. Plush but nicely taut. A stream of boysenberry fruit and violet scents sashay to a samba of thyme, tapenade and smoked meats, nicely avoiding any sense of reduction, or clunky jam. This is smart. Very." 96pts - Ned Goodwin - Wine Companion 

"Deep, rich red/purple colour; sweet blackberry and blackcurrant fruit aromas dominate. There’s an overlay of animal and bunchy characters, including vegetal and spicy touches. The palate is likewise somewhat brisk and raw, with some meaty characters. The fruit character is subordinate. A full-bodied and slightly astringent wine which needs time to soften. Loads of potential, though. (Whole-bunch, wild-yeast fermented, basket-pressed and unfiltered)." 92pts - Huon Hooke - The Real Review
