The Schwarz Meta Grenache is very much the modern look of Barossa Grenache. Built with fruit purity, drinkability and freshness in mind, the fruit for this wine is unoaked, fermented with 72% whole bunches with indigenous yeasts and unfined, unfiltered. With all the work done in the Maranaga and Bethany vineyards, this minimal intervention approach has resulted in a bright, crisp and crunchy style of Grenache that is very hard to put down. "It’s light in colour but it commands attention. It’s quite something." said Campbell Mattinson. We agree...
What it Tastes Like
"This is a bit different; in a good way. It’s remarkably meaty, smoky and nutty; those whole bunches have had an obvious effect, and a terrific one. It burst with earth, raspberry, Turkish delight and ripe, red berried fruit, but then it threads all manner of integrated savoury suggestions throughout. It’s light in colour but it commands attention. It’s quite something." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

About the Producer
Jason Schwarz is another of the ‘new breed’ of young winemakers taking the Barossa by storm.
With his family roots firmly planted in the old gnarly vines of the Barossa, Jason is on a mission to bring a new sense of vitality to the region and produce the sorts of Barossa wines that he wants to drink.
The Barossa has a big reputation. Big in every sense of the word. Known for producing blockbusting examples of impenetrable old vine Shiraz and Grenache envied by much of the world, it is a region that should be celebrated as the region that first put Australian wine on the map. Now, with a new generation of winemakers reinventing the region, there’s more than just power in the Barossa’s bag of tricks. With a move toward picking earlier and pulling back on oak maturation, there’s a fresher, more subtle side to Barossa wine which offers plenty to the modern Australian wine lover.
Grenache is the great sleeping giant of Australian red wine. We are the custodians of the oldest producing Grenache vines in the world, some ancient vineyards planted as far back as the 1850’s. Modern Australian Grenache is a different beast to the wines of yesteryear, they are more youthful and vibrant, showing bright red fruit characters, silky tannins and a delicious array of spices. With the viticultural resources we have at our disposal in this country, Australia can be one of the world’s leading producers of this variety, making wines that easily rival the best of Europe.
