SCHWARZ WINE CO
TROPHY – CLASS WINNER
Our aim is simple; to produce hand-crafted wines from Barossa Valley old vines in an artisanal, considered fashion that allows the finished product to speak of the ground and vintage from which it comes. Small-batch, boutique wines produced by Jason Schwarz, which give great pleasure to the drinker and express the characters of their variety and the Barossa and its sub-regions in the glass.
Hand picked, wild yeast, 20% whole bunches, unfined, unfiltered. 2130 bottles made. Wine worth crowing about. Mountain herbs, graphite, peppercorn and spice notes come at least in lock-step, if not ahead of, blackberry and plum, leather and earth flavours. It’s different, in a good way. It’s fresh and complex, more-ish and highly engaging. Weight doesn’t really come into it but there’s more than enough here. Refreshing feel to it just puts another tick on the positive side of the ledger.
