Red Art Shiraz 2016


Our highly awarded 2016 vintage Red Art Shiraz is a full bodied wine with fabulous fruit expression.   We have 3 separate blocks of shiraz on our little single vineyard, and each plot provides different characters and tannin profiles.  Together they create a wine with great depth and layers of flavours.  Maturation in mostly older French oak allows the single vineyard characters to shine through without strong oak influence.  This wine will continue to develop in the bottle for many, many years to come.

Decanter May 2023 96 points

From a family-run micro-winery founded by sixth-generation Barossan vigneron Sam Kurtz and his wife Bernadette Kaeding, who also designs all the labels for their range. The Shiraz vines on their 5ha Ebenezer site were 20 years old in this moderately warm vintage; the fruit (some left as whole bunches) was handpicked and fermented with wild yeasts in open-top vats, basket pressed, then aged 15 months in seasoned French oak. 

Decanter judges comments:

Justin Knock MW “Intriguing aromatic complexity, savoury, elusive, peppercorn and cured meats, turmeric and sage. Silky and charming, beguiling.”

Tina Gellie “Gorgeous youthful purity on the nose, pretty and lifted, full of florals, berries and exotic smoky spices. Compelling, a lightly dancing and breezy Shiraz with good structure.”

Roger Jones “Clean and focused with a smoky element, blackcurrants, spice, restrained. A classy wine full of promise, ripe fruit still at the fore but a lovely complexity, too.”
