Krondorf Growers Barossa Shiraz (Schulz & Bowen) 2012


The growers for this Krondorf wine are Anita Bowen and Nick Schulz, and the custodian winemaker is Nick Badrice.  I am not entirely sure what custodian in the context of winemaking means, but it may not matter, as I liked this wine in the glass as a typical example of a Barossa shiraz at the $15 to $20 mark.  Purple in colour, it has aromatics of spice and dark fruits - mostly impressions of dark plums and blackcurrants.  Some black pepper characters too.  The palate has a fruit purity to it and its oak is handled well.  A salty slice of pepperoni pizza saw its component parts well matched.

Rating: Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $18, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.cellarmasters.com.au/, Website: n/a, Tasted: 2015

  1. This came across too big for me Sean. Even after a few days open it didn't budge. I found it hard to come around to. Good to get your opinion though.

  2. It is a bigger style, but I thought it had Barossa typicity. With pizza all is forgiven :)
