This is a great Barossa Cabernet. The Willow's Cabernet vines are planted near to the banks of the North Para River, dotted by gum trees, as it winds it way through the Scholz vineyards. So, it is no surprise to find eucalyptus aromas along with the more classic Cabernet characters on the nose with this wine. The French would call this "terroir", but Peter Scholz insists that this is how it's always been down in that part of the vineyard.

'The aromas are clean and raspberry like with a background of licorice and mixed spices. Succulent, Intense with licorice, spice and dark cherry flavours, long carry and rich texture. Sumptuous stuff! 93 points" Gourmet Traveller Wine Sept 2017
G7 refers to seventh generation Scholz family who help create this spicy fruit driven Grenache blend. 80% Grenache and 20% Shiraz spend 12 months maturation in older French oak barrels. The wine is vibrant crimson in colour with lively fresh berry fruit succulence. The palate shows softly textured tannins with beautiful wild cherry fruits and the spicy overtones expected of Grenache, along with the strength and length of Shiraz. Drink over the next few years.

"94 points. No holds barred on the bouquet, with a display of luxurious oak, Christmas pudding and minty, mentholated fruit. Rich and sweet in flavour, heavy in texture and armed with imposing tannins." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
This flagship from the Willows vineyard is a tribute to Johann Gottfried Scholz, who arrived in the Barossa in 1845 and found that his healing skills gained as a bonesetter in the Prussian Army made him a legend among the Silesian settlers. His sons and grandsons ran the Willows Hospital on the site for more than 100 years.
In the late 1960`s a small Shiraz vineyard was planted and became known by the family as the Bonesetter’s block. Selected premium parcels of Shiraz fruit from this mature vineyard are fermented in open fermenters, then basket press before ageing the wine in new French oak hogsheads for two years.
The 2014 shows typical Barossa voluptuous richness and structure, intense and powerful ripe fruit along with supporting fine tannins and stylish savoury oak. It is a multi-layered powerhouse that will reward those who cellar it carefully. Halliday rating 94 points...Drink through to 2030

BEST SPARKLING WINE Barossa Wine Show 2017
"95 points. Tirage bottled and left on lees for 19 months. This is towards the upper end of the Barossa Valley sparkling shorazs led by Rockford's Black shiraz. It has depth, complexity and great balance, mouthfeel, all the black fruits doing the work, not the high dosage." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion

Made from 100% Shiraz, this wine is named to honour the five generations of Scholz "Doctors" that have worked and lived on the family property since 1845. A blend of vintages for complexity, the average age of the base wine is 5 years.

Fermented in this bottle by traditional methods, it gains its yeast complexity from 19 months on yeast lees. The wine is liquered back to 18g/l residual sugar to enhance the finish. A truly Australian style showing rich black fruits and chocolate with gentle tannins from shiraz, complex yeast characters, yet maintaining a soft, long palate.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Decanter Magazine Australian Shiraz Tasting
"Smoky, struck flint aromas unfurl onto a plush, velvety texture in the mouth. It is a rigorous wine with dominating savoury flavours and a eucalyptus undertone. The alcohol is well hidden through a discretely supportive tannic structure. Drink 2017-2021"

Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet defined tannins.

The Willows Story


The Scholz family have lived at Light Pass, a tiny hamlet in the eastern Barossa Valley since 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 - the Barossa.
Peter Scholz, the sixth generation of the family, graduated from Australia's premier winemaker training institution, Roseworthy Agricultural College in 1979. He served his "apprenticeship" under the guidance of Peter Lehmann - first at Saltram and later at Peter Lehmann Wines - and worked with luminaries such as Andrew Wigan and Charlie Melton over a 20 year period.

Peter made the first vintage of The Willows in 1987 and released his first wine in 1989, when the cellar door opened adjacent to the century old Willows hospital.

In 1999 Peter returned to The Willows as full time winemaker.
