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.

From the eminent St Andrews Block A30, Old Lands Block S50, 40 and 80, traditional 1654 clones of Shiraz. Grapes are moved a short distance to the winery where they are gently de-stemmed to retain integrity and minimise any maceration or extraction of harsh tannins. Fruit is transferred to headless barrels and inoculated with a specialist strain of Shiraz yeast. Ferments are hand plunged twice daily to aid gentle extraction before being pressed and returned to barrel for malolactic. Upon completion, the component wines are racked off lees, assembled and filled to a selection of water bent American oak barrels for eighteen months maturation prior to filtration.
Brick red colour with deep crimson heart, already showing signs of development. A brooding, savoury complex yet thoroughly enticing aroma. Mouth watering wafts of chocolate, mocha, toffee and cream intertwine with plum, aniseed and rich berry fruit, great elegance and length. The palate is a mouthful of round completeness. Fruit flavours and oak weight are in absolute balance bringing harmony, grace and a pleasurable warmth to the palate from start to finish.
