Overview

Overview

Borne from the Barossa's Centenarian Schultz Vineyard, this powerful Shiraz has grace that befits the era of its original 1901 vineyard plantings. Fine, unwavering grainy tannins provide extraordinary length and persistence on the palate of the 2015 Saltram Journal. A medium bodied wine with lingering brambly fruit reminiscent of wild strawberries and cherry pith present a depth and intensity that unveils the elegance of this wine.

This Single Vineyard wine is classified as a Centenarian under the Barossa Old Vine Charter due to the vine age exceeding 100 years. A precious tribute to our rich Barossa history.

93 Points Ned Goodwin - Halliday Wine Companion

“Dense, brooding and old vine-vinous. Malty oak. Clove, black plum, five-spice, violet and mocha. The power cannot be denied. Without the detail of its cabernet brethren in youth, this needs time. “ Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion

Vintage Conditions

The 2015/2016 was characterised by a very warm and dry late Spring/early Summer period, finishing with a well-timed rainfall event at the end of January followed by mild weather conditions throughout February. These conditions restricted yields and led to high quality fruit potential.
