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 aged exceeding 100 years. A precious tribute to our rich Barossa history.

“From vines c1900 grown in the Eden Valley. What a wine this is for its complexity, depth of flavour and its sheen. Fantastic purple-noir; layers of dark fruit lifted with a heady fragrance of lavender and violets, a sprinkling of licorice and wood spices lead onto a full-bodied palate. No shortage of tannins, yet there's this bright acid lift on the finish, both ensure this will be long-lived.” 95 points, Halliday Wine Companion 2019
