Winemaker Notes

Individual parcels of Shiraz from venerable old vineyards are the jewels in teh crown of the Barossa wine industry. Wild Witch vineyards nestled in the Lyndoch Hills is one of these rare gems. Traditional viticulture techniques handed down through many generations ensure that I have the most wonderful Shiraz grapes grown in the world. The concentrated spicy peppery aromas of this dry grown Shiraz tamed after two and a half years in new French oak. Hogsheads are full-bodied, voluptuous and opulent.

"The 2005 Wild Witch Shiraz is a bit richer, riper, and deeper. Opulent, dense, and sweetly fruited, this behemoth demands 8-10 years of cellaring and will offer pleasure through 2035."

Trevor Jones began his winemaking career in 1977 at Bernkastel Wines, with Rob O'Callaghan of Rockford Winery Basket Press Shiraz fame, and worked through two vintages, before accepting a position as assistant winemaker at Karrawirra Wines in 1979. In 1982, Trevor was appointed winemaker and remained in that position until 1986. During Trevor's time at Karrawirra, he also made wines for Kellermeister Wines and eventually became full time winemaker there. Additionally, Trevor has worked as a consultant winemaker for Anglesey Wines, St. Hallett Wines and Glenara Wines.

Trevor Jones received the distinction of being awarded two perfect 100 point scores (never before awarded) for the Old Barossa Tokay and the Barossa Liqueur Shiraz Tawny from Robert Parker Jr. of The Wine Advocate in February 2000.

Though Syrah originated in the Rhône Valley of France, Australia is home to the oldest Syrah (called Shiraz here) vines on the planet. Found in Australia’s Barossa Valley, where phylloxera has never threated viticulture, these ancient vines are between 140 to 175 years old!

Having brought fame and merit to the country’s wine scene since the early 1950s, namely via the debut of Penfolds Grange, today Syrah (Shiraz) claims rank as the most widely planted grape in Australia. In fact, the amount of land dedicated to Shiraz in Australia is now almost equivalent to what it is in France. Australian Shiraz has its own personality with flavors and aromas of intense blackberry, fruitcake, menthol, tobacco leaf and umami. Conveniently one can find great Australian Shiraz at a variety of price points but the very best will be dense, gloriously complex and capable of long aging.
