Peter and Michael Scholz's Australian story began in 1845 when forty year old Johann Gottfried joined his neighbours to flee the religious persecution of his Silesian homeland, emigrating to a fertile valley on the other side of the world. Planted in 1936, Willows Vineyard is located on the banks of Para River near the village of Light Pass, a site enivigorated by cooling gully breezes during vintage, providing slow ripening and a clearer expression of spicey berry flavours in the Shiraz. Treated to a regimen of taditional winemaking techniques, the powerful fruit has been tamed by two years maturation in American oak hogsheads, bringing structure to the palate and endowing the wine with soft, ripe tannins.
Dense, vibrant colour. Very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper bouquet. A beautiful rich red, the heady scents slide into the pure mint and blackcurrant palate, joined by the extra dimension of light sweet eucalypt. Generous, ripe and mouth filling, showing gorgeous berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak derived mocha overtones and harmonies over soft yet well defined tannins.
