Jancis Robinson - 18 Points "I am a horribly stingy scorer. For a young, non-classic wine to get 18 points out of 20 from me is embarrassingly rare. So today's wine really is exceptional in my view."
Jason Schwarz – Located in the quaint township of Bethany, this special block was planted with Shiraz vines by my parents in 1968 and has been hand tendered by them ever since. Low yielding and dry grown it produces fruit of great intensity and depth. I hope you will enjoy this wines as much as I enjoy making it.
92 Points - James Halliday
Intense purple-red; floods the mouth with full-on confit black fruits, sufficiently luscious to largely carry the alcohol; heroic style, but a good one, particularly in 20 years or so.
Jason Schwarz – "My family first planted Grenache vines here at the end of World War II. With over 60 years of generous attention these beautiful gnarled vines continue to produce fruit of deep character and complexity."
17.5 Points – Julia Harding “Made by Jason Schwarz, the son and grandson of pruning champions, based at Bethany. Dry-grown fruit. Sweet meaty aromas. Big and bold with bags of character but manages to remain fresh even with 15% alcohol. Juicy, even a little bit wild and herbal.“
