Seven Sleepers, or Siebenschlaffer, is named after an old Barossa German farmers’ lore, being the weather that occurs on 27 June is likely to be prevalent for the next 7 weeks. All fruit for Seven Sleepers Shiraz is grown or sourced from vineyards in the Barossa Valley. The vines receive minimal irrigation and are pruned for low yields to provide vine balance and maximum fruit quality and varietal characteristics.Seven Sleepers is a fruit driven wine dominated by plums on the nose with blackberry fruits on the palate. This wine is not over powered by oak, allowing the fruit to show its full potential. Firm tannins give the wine a lingering finish. A rich combination of sweet mouth filling flavours that is ideally suited to current consumption, but the wine will also improve with further careful cellaring.

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 grapegrower 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 wines that are rich on the nose and palate. http://kurtzfamilyvineyards.com.au/new/
