This weekend, come on down to PasarBella@TheGrandstand for a special appearance by winemaker Jason Schwarz from the Schwarz Wine Company!
As part of a regular programme by Merchants Wine Store at PasarBella@TheGrandstand, Jason will host the cellar door. Through friendly interactions with customers, he will share his wine-making experiences highlighting, in particular, the Schwarz Shiraz 2014 wine, which is sourced from various old-vine vineyards across the Barossa Valley. Each individual parcel is vinified separately in small ferments before being aged in seasoned oak barrels, then undergoing blending.
Brought in by Merchants Wine Cellar, a collective of small and independent wineries from 26 wine-growing regions in Australia and New Zealand, Schwarz Wine Company is helmed by the Schwarz family. With a long history in the Barossa Valley, Australia, and now into the fifth generation, the family has access to some of the region's finest fruit with old vines stretching back to 130 years of age.
Winemaker Jason Schwarz was not formally trained in winemaking but boasts a notable portfolio, having worked in Bordeaux, Burgundy, The Rhone, Stellenbosch and Napa prior to joining the family wine business. His father had won the state pruning championships held in the Clare Valley in the mid-1980’s. Showcasing a distinctively low intervention winemaking style, he prefers to let the fruit take the centre stage and speak for itself.
