Once upon a time around the end of the 19th century, this 72 acre patch of real estate included only a few acres of vineyard, with most of the area being dedicated to cropping and dairy cattle. At the start of the 1930's Oscar Semmler, Wayne's grandfather bought the block and more vineyard was planted, but it remained primarily a grazing area for dairy purposes. Oscar's Dad referred to the dirt as a "wonder of creation", a fact borne out by the wine now coming from it. The vineyard of that time, while reflecting the fortified market of the day, did not predict the potential to produce the rich varietal flavours found in current production. Oscar's son Ken returned to the Barossa Valley in the early 1970's after first spreading his wings as a fighter pilot with the RAAF, dodging anti-aircraft fire above the jungles of Vietnam. Then in 1975, the transition began with Ken starting the planting of the beloved Shiraz, and it is this first area of Shiraz which provides the precious component of Dutschke Wines Read more »

  • Dutschke Shiraz Barossa Valley Sun Raisined NV


    This stuff is fantastic. I love Shiraz and this is like a super concentrated shiraz for sipping as a dessert wine. But turns out if you have a bottle of shiraz thats been open too long you can add a drop of this to the glass and VOILA- good wine. Also dynamite for making my syrah-blueberry sauce topping for lemon cheesecake Read More
