Jason Schwarz – I have spent many hot vintage days walking the rows to select the perfect parcels of fruit to make this wine. This wine is a blend of premium varieties selected from more than 7 individual sites around Barossa Valley.

The 2006 Dust Kicker is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvedre that spent 18 months in seasoned French oak before bottling without filtration (as are all the Schwarz wines). Purple-colored, it offers up a complex nose of cedar, spice box, tobacco, earth notes, black cherry, and blueberry. Layered on the palate, this easy-drinking, pleasure-bent wine has gobs of flavor, a lush palate feel, and a fruit-filled finish.
