About The Wine

Jason Schwarz crafts his Meta Shiraz with an eye to elevate the traditional robust Barossa Shiraz to something with more spice and finesse.

The inclusion of whole bunches and a more restrained use of oak allows a lifted aspect to the perfume and a more savoury flavour profile than is common in Shiraz from the famous region.

Armed with some excellent reviews from some of the best of the best in the game, this is a refreshing take on a classic Australian wine style.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked from vineyards in Stone Well, Moppa and the Eden Valley, 22% whole bunches, wild-yeast-fermented, 195 dozen made. An attractive medium to full-bodied shiraz with black cherry, plum and oak showing the way, the juicy mouthfeel engendered by the whole bunch inclusion and modest alcohol." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

"It’s definitely one for the whole bunch brigade. It might only make up 22% of the mix, but the influence is clear and relatively dangerous. Needless to say, it had me more or less swooning from the outset. Nuts, herbs, woodsmoke, strings of greenery – it’s all there. Of course, and all-importantly, there’s a fresh burst of black cherry and blackberry-like fruit flavour too; it has the style, but it also has the substance. Whether or not you think this wine takes things too far will depend on your view of the bunchy style. There’s a screw of dry, slightly bitter, tannin here too, compounding the wine’s in-your-face nature. Personally I think it’s a stand-out red, particularly after a stint in the decanter.“ - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
