Named after an animate vineyard site, nestled in the hills above Lyndoch, Wild Witch Shiraz is not for the faint of heart. A painstaking regimen of viticultural techniques and traditional hands-on vinification ensure that Wild Witch is completed to the most exacting standards. Created from the finest Shiraz grapes Kellermeister can source, silken in texture with a cryptic nose and brooding palate, lingering fruit and substantive tannins. Wild Witch is an intense experience of Shiraz, memorable for it's individuality and exquisite grace.
Grapes are harvested fully ripe to healthy levels of sugar baume, temperatures are adjusted at the crusher and yeasts are immediately added. After a week or two on skins, the musts are treated to a Willmes air bag press and components returned straight back into the free runs. Ferments are filled to a selection of mostly new oak barrels, drawing away the clear juice from dead yeast lees. Barrels are racked several times over the course of two or three years. Distinctive peppery, dry grown Shiraz characters evolve over the course of an extravagant, extended maturation, achieving the opulent, complex and intense Barossa Shiraz known as Wild Witch.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red colour. Voluptuous spice, licorice and plum aromas, generous yet refined. An elegant palate expressing cedar notes in support of red currant, blackberries and pepper spice. A rich tannin lift, extracted from the grape skins and quality new French oak. In its youth, there are spikes of flavour coming from all directions. The intrinsic power, dimension and surprising elegance inevitably brings even the most indulgent connoisseur under its long, intense, and luxurious spell. Discover the magic.

About the Kellermeister Winery
Kellermeister is a small family owned winery situated on the Barossa Valley Highway at Lyndoch, established in 1979 by Ralph and Val Jones
Ralph was National Marketing manager at Orlando wines for fifteen years prior to founding his own estate. Kellermeister have been handcrafting wines at their boutique winery for a long time now. It all began in the late 1970s as Ralph and Val Jones sat with gum boots on, ankle deep in water, labouring tirelessly into the night together. Over many cold winter’s nights, in a small tin shed perched above the valley floor, they laboured - kept warm only by the glow of the love they shared and the fire that was their dream for Kellermeister. Their aim was to produce wines of unique character - wines true to the German traditions of the Barossa Valley which was so richly influenced by the Silesian settlements of the 1840s. And so it was, through much love, sacrifice and hard work that Ralph and Val Jones brought their dream to life. Kellermeister»
