• Meta: An abstraction from a well-known concept Hand Picked | Wild Yeast |18% Whole Bunch | Unfined and Unfiltered Fruit source: Stonewell, Light Pass, Eden Valley & Vine Vale Alcohol: 14.2% Production: 538 dozen Bottled: 8/6/21 Serious Shiraz here, but with lift and life. Red and black cherry fruits interplay here with spices, tea and wild herbal notes. A little veil of oak too, but all very well in check. Nice richness without being overly so, there's  great presence of tannin on the palate. Indicating that for all its drinkability now it has a long life ahead of it. **Tasting notes written by Christian Canala - Vinify Wine Co** Download tasting Note
  • 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
  • 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 Shows the quality of both the vintage and the fruit. Schwarz’s GSM has never been a huge wine but this one is bang on for mid-weight feel. Red plums, strawberries, blueberries and black fruits all in the mix and a really nice firm stoniness to it too. Tastes like each part of its G, S and M, the palate is full but not heavy, nice and smoky with just enough heft behind the fruit. **Tasting notes written by Christian Canala - Vinify Wine Co** Download Tasting Note
  • Introducing the newly labeled Shiraz. 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. Vintage: 2020 Region: Barossa Valley Vineyards: Vine Vale, Bethany, Marananga, Stonewell, Hallett Valley, and Light Pass Alcohol: 14.2% Production: 1688 dozen Bottled: 11 June 2021
    Tasting note: Concentrated and inky dark, with ironstone, black cherry and cedar. Proper Barossa Shiraz with very punchy aromatics, showing sweeter fruits once shown some air. Soft and pliant on the palate, nice sweet black fruits in the mix with plenty of Barossa's signature fleshy texture. *Tasting notes written by Christian Canala from Vinify Wine Co*

  • 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 1,046 bottles have been produced. 95 Points -  2023 Halliday Wine Companion (Reviewed by Dave Brookes) "Sourced from a patch of 400 vines, planted in 1881 in Hallett Valley, wild-yeast fermented, matured in French oak (50% new). Aromas of deep spice notes sheathing super-ripe blackberry, black cherry and plum fruits along with hints of licorice, dark chocolate, espresso, and vanillin oak. Rich and mouth-filling, with impressive fruit weight and purity. Gorgeous tannins fade back into the fruit, providing ample support and a finish that lingers admirably. A very impressive, textural wine that shows grace and power in equal measure."
    The 2019 Schiller Shiraz is a delicious wine, albeit one that should be destined for the cellar. Salted licorice, kirsch, blood plum, and vanilla are present now, but the nose is withholding its true aromatic potential for the moment. There is a wonderful feeling of pent-up energy, the palate is firm, layered, textured, and extremely long. I can’t wait to taste this in 5+ years *Tasting notes written by Christian Canala at Vinify Wine Co* Download Tasting Note
