SVEN JOSCHKE WINE - 'DAS KLAUS' SYRAH 2021

ORIGIN Barossa Valley, South Australia
MAKER Sven Joschke
Life has its twists and turns. Sometimes the horizon is as direct as the crow flies, and other times, we take the scenic tour. Sven Joschke, born and raised in the Adelaide Hills, has definitely taken the long way home.
Spending the last 15 years abroad and interstate, Sven decided to ditch his life as a Chartered Accountant and come back home to South Australia. Swapping the Casio and spreadsheets for his ultimate calling of wine, at least he can now claim market research when enjoying some plonk!
Guided by 'Schwatta' and Shelly from Biscay Rd in Tanunda, and inspired by his experience making wine in Jura, France, the mission has been simple from the get go - make it delicious, work your backside off, do it with love and most importantly, let nature do the talking.
Roping in two of his mates to the shenanigans, bringing Sven Joschke's wine to life has required many detours, back roads and long-cuts...but it's finally here.
So enjoy the destination, crack a bottle of this delicious juice and get up to some inspired mischief.
