• Meta: An abstraction from a well-known concept Handpicked, wild yeast, 82% whole bunch, unfined and unfiltered Fruit source: Bethany 75 year-old vines and Marananga 90 year-old vines Alcohol: 13.5% 325 dozen produced This year’s Meta Grenache has a little more Grenache swagger than previous years of this release. Black cherry, blueberry and lavender scents with nutmeg spice and some alluring fresh red berry edges. Plenty of sappy chomp and it’s packaged smartly with fresh acidity, but a little juicy cherry fruit and pliant tannin to finish
  • The family Grenache block on Thiele Road in Bethany remains one of Jason's favourite blocks. The Thiele Road Grenache was the second wine made by Jason Schwarz and celebrates his love of this diverse variety. The gnarled, old vines were planted in 1941 and they produce fantastic fruit. Variety: 100% Grenache Vintage: 2019 Region: Barossa Valley Alcohol: 14.5% Production: 178 dozen Bottled: December 2020 Thiele Road Grenache always displays a thoughtful side to this historic Barossa variety, and the 2019 vintage is no exception
  • The Nitschke Road Shiraz block was planted by my mother and father in 1968 in Bethany near the base of the Eastern Barossa Range. The vineyard is still pruned and picked by hand and the soils of loam over brown and red clays results in a wine of considerable concentration and drive. Rich, opulent fruit is the reoccurring theme with this vineyard and it always seems to show great balance and texture year in, year out. The Nitschke Block Shiraz was the first wine made by Jason Schwarz back in 2001. Variety: 100% Shiraz Vintage: 2020 Region: Barossa Valley Alcohol: 14.5 % Production: 360 dozen Bottled: June 2021
  • Varieties: 100% Chenin Blanc Vineyards: Light Pass (planted 1975) Alcohol: 12% Production: 204 dozen bottled 3 June 2021 Yeast: Wild Oak: Old French Oak The 2020 Chenin bursts with green apples and limes, yellow grapefruit, and fresh green grapes along with what is becoming a signature of this wine - a kind of gravelly minerality amongst the fresh-cut fruit characters. There’s a tang to this, in the nicest and most thirst-quenching sense, racy and clean with stacks of pithy texture. *Tasting notes written by Christian Canala at Vinify Wine Co*  Download Tasting Note

  • Dedicated to all the Growers we work with, whose hard work and dedication to their craft enable us to purchase luscious fruit year after year. The Grower range is a testament to the amazing growers Jason has forged long-term relationships with since 2001. The 2020 vintage of The Grower GSM is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro that perfectly showcases the Barossa's most popular red varieties. Vintage: 2020 Region: Barossa Valley Varieties: Grenache 51% Shiraz 46% Mataro 3% Vineyards: Bethany, Vine Vale, Marananga, Hallett Valley, Gomersal, Moppa Alcohol: 14.3% Production: 1323 dozen Bottled: 8 June 2021 "A deep and purposeful nose, opening with cherry liqueur, licorice and violet with dustings of cocoa powder and a little brambly fruit. Mataro plays a supporting role, injecting a little grunty savouriness that’s in tune with the overall supple nature of this year’s GSM. The palate is all supple tannins, perky fruit flavour and signs off with a little marzipan kiss" **Tasting notes written by Christian Canala - Vinify Wine Co** Download Tasting Note
  • This Shiraz, from 400 vines planted in 1881 is Barossa history in a bottle. Hand-picked from the vineyard still managed by the sixth-generation of the Schiller family, only 2100 bottles have been produced. An intensely dark coloured Shiraz with a complex array of aromatics - black cherry and dark plum, star anise and cinnamon framed around well managed French oak. 95 Points -  2022 Halliday Wine Companion
    An opulent wine showing the hallmarks of very well handled old-vine Barossa Shiraz, the thing that strikes about the 2018 Schiller is the mass of savoury, roasted meat characters, spices and black plum with aniseed and a run through of vanilla milk chocolate. Certainly up to the ageing task, though this year the Shiller is particularly approachable on the palate, the tannins openly knit, weaving together plenty of sweet dark fruit *Tasting notes written by Christian Canala at Vinify Wine Co* Download tasting notes
