The Kurtz family are fifth generation Barossans of German descent. The original Kurtz Family Vineyard was planted in the 1930s, with vines still in use today. These vines, together with later plantings and acquisitions in the fifties and sixties, allow fourth generation grape grower and vigneron, Steve Kurtz, to draw on significant old vine fruit to create a range of wines that are fine examples of the traditional Barossa style – full flavoured reds that are rich on the nose and palate.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The Boundary Row range of wines is named after a Barossa tradition of using vine rows rather than fences to distinguish the different owners of adjoining vineyards, with fruit from the boundary row shared between the neighbours.
A distinctive nose of blackberry, blueberry and dark red plums, with complex savoury notes, and hints of aniseed, warm spices and fine bittersweet chocolate. The palate is rich and full, with bright, juicy flavours of dark plum, blackberry and blueberry, complex earthy notes, mocha and spice. A smooth, textural mouthfeel, with a lingering finish, combines savoury notes of cedar with fine-grained tannins that seem to last forever."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Richly fruited and instantly appealing with black/blueberry, spicy oak, olive and dark cocoa aromas, it's concentrated and flavoursome in the mouth delivering plush texture and fine polished tannins. It's opulent and silky with a persistent delectable finish. At its best: now to 2032."
90/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, March 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"Black fruit, mint and sage, toasty oak. It’s rich and black fruited, some tar and dried herb, ample flavour, a slight nip to the acidity, fair chew of tannin, and a finish of solid length. Rock solid."
