About The Wine
Marcus Schulz was the first grower to sell Dave Powell fruit back in 1994 to start his then fledgling label, Torbreck.
Now, more than two decades on, the releationship is stronger than ever. The Schulz vineyard located in the Koonunga Hill parish is the only vineyard in the Powell & Son stable that isn't managed by Dave and Callum. They see Marcus as one of the Barossa's best farmers with five generations of Barossa grape-growing knowledge pulsing through his veins. He knows these vines like the back of his hand and farms them with all the care and attention in the world.
The wine from this block is an imposing Shiraz of incredible stature. It's the full Barossa show - inky, brooding and impossibly long on flavour. It's the perfect wine for a special occasion.
About Powell & Son
Powell & Son is a joint operation between father and son team, David and Callum Powell.
David was the spearhead behind the Torbreck juggernaut that took the world by storm in the 1990s. After leaving the Torbreck name behind, David and Callum partnered up to establish their own small operation focused around expressing some of the Barossa and Eden Valley's most precious vineyards.
With his decades-long relationships with these Barossa Valley growers as the foundation of the project, David has taken a step back in terms of the winemaking. It's now up to Callum to do the heavy lifting in the cellar, bringing these powerhouse expressions of Barossa Valley reds to life and writing the next chapter in the story of the Powell family and their beloved Barossa Valley.
