Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"The Willows has been our home since 1845, when `JG` Scholz first arrived in the Barossa. Seven generations on, we continue to farm our unique parcel of land in the Barossa.
Dense crimson in the glass, our Shiraz shows aromatics of berry fruits, a touch of dark chocolate and earth with hints of sweet spice. Soft and velvety on the palate, the dark fruits intensify to reveal great depth of flavour. The wines generosity is neatly framed with soft, ripe tannins that lend great length and structure to the wine."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (2018 Vintage)
"Impressively ripe and gorgeously composed, the fragrant bouquet shows blackberry, warm spice, cedar and dark cocoa aromas, followed by a concentrated palate delivering supple mouthfeel and succulent fruit flavours. Superbly long and velvety to the finish. At its best: now to 2035."

92/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2018 Vintage)
"Boasts a lifted floral nose evocative of a cooler zone than the Barossa. The colour too….is vital mid ruby. Blueberry, smoked backstrap, aniseed and briar skirt, along rails of juicy acidity and fine boned tannins. The oak is buried. This is a delicious and elegant wine, offering solid value."
