Willows Bonesetter Shiraz
Barossa
Available in cases of 6
A small Barossa site was planted to Shiraz vines and named Bonesetter Block in the 1960s. Peter Scholz selects choice parcels of fruit from this mature vineyard, carefully handling the wine before ageing in tightly grained French oak hogsheads for a little more than two years. Bonesetter exhibits the most voluptuous palate, great richness and solid structure, intense and powerful ripe fruit characters as supported by splendid tannins and stylish savoury oak. A multi layered powerhouse of a wine that will reward all lovers of grand Barossa Shiraz.

The Barossa's international reputation for powerful Shiraz wines with super palate length and softness has been established by flagship efforts like Bonesetter. The Willows Vineyard ranges from deep alluvial soils, ideal for root development, to red brown loam over clay and tough sandy soils where old vines struggle to sire their fruit. The Bonesetter Block is endowed by the most favourable ripening conditions, Shiraz can be harvested at the intense end of the flavour spectrum, exhibiting deep colours and the ripest tannins. Fruit is treated to open fermenters and the traditional hand operated basket press. Two years maturation in French oak has enhances the complexity and complements the robust flesh.
 
Dense, vibrant colour. Very ripe nose, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberries and pepper. The palate is generously mouthfilling, exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet well defined, flattering tannins. A stunning wine, with perfumed oak supporting a multi layered powerhouse of fruit.
Willows Cabernet Sauvignon
Barossa
Available by the dozen
The vineyard grows along the banks of the North Para River and the fruit is harvested late in the season when the flavours are fully developed, tannins are ripe and sugar levels high. Vineyard specific fruit characters of mint and a touch of Eucalypt are the hallmarks of this Barossa Cabernet. Exhibiting the richness and warmth of fruit one would expect from the region, this is a wine of great varietal flavour, combining stylish fruit characters along with rich chocolate hints which are typically associated with good Barossa reds.

Deep dark red. Brooding Barossa bouquet, currants and cassis, varietal leaf. Extended maturation in French oak hogsheads over two years has helped create a long, soft, silky texture. The complexity of black fruits, integrated oak and fine ripe tannins combine to make this a wine of immediate appeal, or enjoy through next ten years.
Willows G7 Grenache Shiraz

An ideal site, invigorated by gully winds for a slow ripening of intense berry spice flavours in the grapes. Mostly Grenache with a fifth of Shiraz, defined by its succulence and aromatic allure, the softly textured tannins, decadent spice and wickedly wild cherry fruits of Grenache, the firm structure and palate length of Shiraz.

Peter and Michael Scholz's Australian story began in 1845 when forty year old Johann Gottfried joined his neighbours to flee the religious persecution of his Silesian homeland, emigrating to a fertile valley on the other side of the world. Planted in 1936, Willows Vineyard is located on the banks of Para River near the village of Light Pass, a site enivigorated by cooling gully breezes during vintage, providing slow ripening and a clearer expression of spicey berry flavours in the Shiraz. Treated to a regimen of taditional winemaking techniques, the powerful fruit has been tamed by two years maturation in American oak hogsheads, bringing structure to the palate and endowing the wine with soft, ripe tannins.
 
Dense, vibrant colour. Very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper bouquet. A beautiful rich red, the heady scents slide into the pure mint and blackcurrant palate, joined by the extra dimension of light sweet eucalypt. Generous, ripe and mouth filling, showing gorgeous berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak derived mocha overtones and harmonies over soft yet well defined tannins.
The Scholz's Australian story began in 1845 when 40 year-old Johann Gottfried joined his neighbours to flee the religious persecution of his Silesian homeland, and emigrate to a fertile valley on the other side of the world

Like the other settlers, Johann established a mixed farm of sheep, cows, crops and fruit trees as well as a few grape vines along the alluvial banks of the Para River. This northern Barossa location is distinguished by its cooling gully breezes during vintage, providing slow ripening and a clearer expression of berry and spice flavours in red wines and lifted varietal fruit characters in whites.

Johann had also spent most of his early career as a bone-setter in the Prussian Army and it was his healing hands which were in demand, as the early settlers had to contend with the daily bumps, breaks and bruises of their harsh environment.

In 1914, when World War I broke out against Germany, fourth generation Herbert Bernard left for the United States rather than be interned. Here he learned the new science of physiotherapy at famous spas such as the Chicago Steam Baths. Herbert's fame grew during the 1940s, particularly during the post-War polio epidemic, when he gave many locals a new life by rejecting the traditional medical prescription of bed rest and advocating exercise instead.

Herbert's son William Herbert, known as 'Bert' was forced to study medicine to continue the family tradition

Bert graduated in 1954 and practised in Victoria and at Loxton in the Riverland before returning to Angaston in the mid 1970s. He wisely maintained the Shiraz and Semillon vines, now the backbone of some of The Willows most popular wines, but replaced the old Pedro and Doradillo grapes, which had been used for brandy production.

In their place went more Shiraz, plus Cabernet, Grenache, Mataro, Riesling and Muscadelle. He even showed a progressive streak by planting Pinot Noir, which still remains today.

Unfortunately Bert's enthusiasm about grapegrowing coincided with the industry's worst downturn. In the late 1970s the red wine boom became the red wine glut and Bert sought a better price for his grapes by transferring his contract from the Kaiser Stuhl Cooperative to Saltram, where an old family friend, Peter Lehmann was chief winemaker.

Although winery owner, Dalgety refused to take the grapes in the vintage of 1977, Peter honoured his contracts and started his own winery, with Bert Scholz one of his loyal growers. Not surprisingly, Bert's son Peter took his first winemaking job with Peter Lehmann at Saltram in 1979. Here he entered a dynamic environment, working with Andrew Wigan and Charlie Melton and the Baron himself to produce signature styles of Barossa Shiraz and Cabernet, Riesling and Semillon.

In 1987 Peter barrelled his first vintage of Willows Vineyard Shiraz, following it up in 1988 with a Shiraz, a Cabernet, a Semillon and Riesling.
