Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital. Over a century later, the exceptional quality of harvest from Gottfried's original homestead, made the fruit of Willows Vineyard, an essential component in the most memorable vintages of Peter Lehmann, Saltram and Kaiser Stuhl. Scholz are still in charge, pruning their vines and pressing their harvests into limited releases of the finest exemplars in old world style, Barossa village.. Savour the shiraz by scholz»

The twelve hectare Neilson's Block was one of the original John Riddoch selections, in true Coonawarra fashion it was exploited as a dairy farm until the planting of rootstock in 1975. Extensive canopy renovation has envigorated the vines and revitalised the quality of harvest. Consistently producing some of Coonawarra's best Cabernet, the cream of crop is earmarked for Ravenswood. Once in the winery the utmost care is taken to preserve the unique and exquisite fruit characters which are its raison d'être. The fruit begins vinification in fermenters before being filled to completely new Tarandsaud & Seguin Moreau French oak barriques for completion and eighteen months maturation.
Dense crimson with purple hues at the rim. Lifted, penetrating aromas of blackcurrant and plums, cassis and black olive. A wine of genuine class with intense flavours of dark berry fruits and hints of dried herbs, menthol and chocolate oak, over integrated and soft, fine grained tannins that ensure the wine is approachable in its youth, the track suggests it cellars exceptionally well. Complex and concentrated, best enjoyed with fine gourmandise.
