About

92

"At nearly 80% Grenache, this is a full-bodied, creamy-textured rendering of the Barossa's classic red trio. Savory, peppery elements add welcome complexity to the nose, while the flavors fold in hints of molasses and plum, then end on a long, supple note."

Product Description:

A full flavoured palate of bloodplums and cherries with ajuiciness and lingering,mouthwatering finish thatcombines the flavours of cigarbox, and chicory with fine-grainedtannins that seem to lastforever. Distinctive red cherry, coffee andaniseed aromas.

"The Kurtz family are fifth generation Barossans of German descent. The original Kurtz Family Vineyard was planted in the 1930s, with vines still in use today. These vines, together with later plantings and acquisitions in the fifties and sixties, allow fourth generation grapegrower and vigneron, Steve Kurtz, to draw on significant old-vine fruit to create a range of wines that are fine examples of the traditional Barossa style - full flavoured reds that are rich on the nose and palate." - Winery
