The growers for this Krondorf wine are Anita Bowen and Nick Schulz, and the custodian winemaker is Nick Badrice. I am not entirely sure what custodian in the context of winemaking means, but it may not matter, as I liked this wine in the glass as a typical example of a Barossa shiraz at the $15 to $20 mark. Purple in colour, it has aromatics of spice and dark fruits – mostly impressions of dark plums and blackcurrants. Some black pepper characters too. The palate has a fruit purity to it and its oak is handled well. A salty slice of pepperoni pizza saw its component parts well matched.
