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»

Pepperjack are designed from the vineyard to the bottle, to be rich, bold red wines. Choice parcels of Shiraz exhibiting a concentration of flavour are assembled, red berries and rich plums, savoury notes and ripe tannins. Crafted to a combination of traditional old world winemaking methods and modern vinification techniques, fruit is treated to a course of maceration for optimal extraction of tannins and colour, followed by a week or two of ferment and transfer to a selection of French and American oak barrels for malolactic and fifteen months maturation. The individual components are separately aged and the candidate barrels are determined through a staged selection process.
Rich red colour with dark purple rim. Nose of rich concentrated red and blue fruits, dark chocolate and rich mocha notes with hints of spice and cedary oak. The palate is rich and plush with good structure, a concentrated layer of berry fruit flavours and judicious oak, balanced by fine tannins to give length and power while finishing soft and full of flavour.
