Kurtz Family Boundary Row Shiraz 2020 (12 Bottles) Barossa Valley

$305.00 GST Included


The Boundary Row range of wines is named after the Barossa tradition of using vine rows rather than fences to distinguish the ownership of adjoining vineyards, with fruit from the boundary row shared between the neighbours.

Nose: A distinctive regional nose of blackberry, blueberry, red plums and dark chocolate, with complex savoury notes of black olive, fresh coffee and warm spices layered with fine oak aromatics.

Palate: The palate is rich and generous, with juicy dark-berry and plum flavours, complex earthy notes, mocha and spice. A smooth, textural mouthfeel is pulled together with a structural backbone that lengthens the palate with lingering fruit flavours, chocolately tannins and notes of cedary oak.

Cellaring Potential: While suitable for current consumption, further medium term cellaring will be rewarded. I highly recommend that this wine be decanted prior to serving.

Food Match: Boundary Row Shiraz is a great match with grilled, pan-fried or roasted meats, and full-flavoured dishes.



About Kurtz Family Wines

The idea for the formation of the Kurtz Family Vineyards is by no means unique. It commenced from a long family history of growing grapes, drinking the end product and a desire to see wine made exclusively from our own grapes.

My Great Grandfather, Alfred Bernhard (Ben) Kurtz, began growing grapes in the sub-region of Light Pass in the Barossa Valley back in the 1930’s and this very same block is still worked to this day. Grandfather, Bernhard Otto Kurtz, commenced grapegrowing in 1957 at his Light Pass vineyard and my father, John Bernhard Kurtz and my mother Erril, moved to the existing vineyards in the early 1960’s.

I first became involved in the Industry working a couple of vintages at Saltram Wines in the Barossa. This was followed by stints at various locations at Orlando Wines. During most of the 1990’s through to September 2006, I worked for Fosters Wine Estates, and after seeing the light, decided to concentrate on doing ‘my own thing’. The experience at Fosters allowed me to work with winemaking greats such as Nigel Dolan, Caroline Dunn and John Glaetzer to mention just a few, and I am forever grateful for the knowledge they have passed on to me.

Hopefully this family tradition of growing grapes in the Light Pass area will continue for many vintages to come and maybe somewhere down the track my boys will be growing grapes and making wine as my forebears have done for nearly eighty years.
