• 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 Grenache taking plenty of cues from Pinot here. Pours a medium ruby shade, aromatically expressive with sarsaparilla, woody characters from the significant whole bunch portion, and smoky prosciutto and bacon. Palate-wise, it's fine and generous at the same time. Turkish delight, beetroot, rhubarb, cola and more smoky meats, well-articulated through succulent tannins giving pleasing length and fruit persistence through a long finish.  **Tasting notes written by Felix Riley at Felixir Wine ** Download Tasting Note

  • 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 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
  • 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*

    We have made a limited number of the The Schiller Shiraz Magnums available. The magnums come in a wooden box and make a fantastic gift. The Schiller Shiraz is a wine not only rich in flavour but rich in history too. The fruit sourced for this wine comes from the sixth-generation Schiller Family vineyard at Hallett Valley in the Barossa. After a last-minute reprieve from the bulldozers, the 400 Shiraz vines planted by Carl August Otto Schiller in 1881 are something to be treasured. Note: Current vintage (2018 as at October 2020) will be supplied. If you are interested in back vintages, please email me and we will let you know what we have available. Download tasting notes
