This winery endeavors to produce to make rich full-bodied fruit-driven wines (using the original Open Fermenters and Basket Press) with small oak cask maturation.
The Koltz Shiraz is the first of the estate grown wines and comes from a small block of shiraz at Blewitt Springs. It is produced in small volumes and is open fermented and basket pressed. Portions of this wine undergo extended maceration for up to 50 days, depending on the season and grape maturity.
Once pressed it is aged in French oak barrels for 16 to 20 months. Approximately 30% of the barrels are new and the others one and two years old.
Blewitt Springs is generally 2 to 4 weeks later than most of McLaren Vale and this combined with the sandy soils over ironstone produce distinctive wines.
Tatsing notes: Typically, these Koltz Shiraz show aromas of blueberries and earth and are elegant with velvety tannins and good length. Extended maceration contributes to the complexity of Koltz Shiraz and the aim with this wine is to produce a wine which reflects both the vineyard site and the philosophy.

A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background. A very approachable full bodied combination of blueberries, plum, Ribena, mocha chocolate, spice box, vanilla and pepper fill the palate with pleasurable flavours and the balanced soft tannin finish has both length and persistence.
Perfumed notes of blackberry, violets, tar, licorice and roasted meats. The palate shows great depth and weight with a solid core of blackberry, ripe plum and hints of black pepper flavours. The bright tannin remains focused and in balance against the fruit profile.
Multi layered concentration of very rich, juicy, full-bodied black-berried fruits combined with chocolate, tar, pepper, liquorice, smoky oak and chewy robust tannins.
An intensely complex mouthful of Shiraz fruit with a finish that lingers and lingers. The rich fruit carries the 15.5% alc/vol and we would see this Block 6 developing into a great example of old vine Shiraz with 6 years plus in a good cellar.
The taste has mouth filling rich fruit; again berries and currants carrying through with vibrance and superb extension. The finish has the finest grain of tannins, velvety with the wood and fruit extracts beautifully matched and textured.
An elegant medium bodied, rich, fruit driven wine with a deep purple hue and complex aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, black olives and coffee.
The fruit dominant palate displays flavours of bIackberry, cedar, mocha chocolate, liquorice and mint combined with fine integrated oak and grape tannins and a long persistent finish.
This red developed beautifully in the glass and is an excellent food wine, which will complement rather than dominate food.
Dense black cherry colour and aromas of butter over blackberry and blackcurrant together with pepper, tar and liquorice.
The intense fruit dominant characters carry through to the velvety textured palate and combine with flavours of chocolate (mocha), liquorice, coconut, vanilla (American oak), pepper and spice - a red with tremendous mouth feel and great length.
