Six Origins - Jason Schwarz Light Pass Barossa Shiraz 2018
Country of Origin
Six Origins by Artisans of Barossa features six Shiraz wines from the outstanding 2018 vintage, each from a different vineyard, each produced by a different artisan winemaker.
Jason Schwarz from Schwarz Wine Co selected a parcel of Shiraz from Colin Kurtz’ 80+ year old vineyard at Light Pass on the Barossa Valley floor as their contribution to the first release of Six Origins.
Light Pass surrounds the village of the same name and sits to the north east of the township of Nuriootpa, bounded by Pipeline Road to the north, Research Road to the West, the Penrice Road to the south and Stockwell road along the eastern boundary. Schwarz’s Six Origins wine is from Colin Kurtz’ vineyard planted in 1933 in a patchwork of ancient deep red and brown sandy loam soils over subsurface clay and limestone. The nose shows a fine blend of red and dark fruits and hazelnut, with flows through to a classic ‘black forest cake’ palate of raspberry, red plums and dark cherry. Typical of Shiraz from Light Pass, this is a soft, plush and flavoursome wine with excellent length, soft tannins and a fine line of bright acid.
