Krondorf Wines has today unveiled its 2024 collection. The release includes four Barossa Valley red wines – two Shirazs, a Grenache, and a Cabernet Sauvignon – all crafted by Chief Winemaker Nick Badrice. 

“Our 2024 collection is a snapshot of our finest wines right now while also being a celebration of the Krondorf legacy,” said Badrice.

“The wines encompass the 2020 and 2022 vintage seasons, two years that gave low yields but fantastic fruit quality.” 

Included in the release is Krondorf’s 121 Settlers Shiraz 2020, Stone Altar Grenache 2022, Stone Altar Shiraz 2022, and Kingship Cabernet Sauvignon 2022.

The 121 Settlers Old Vine Shiraz 2020 pays homage to the 121 settlers who first arrived to the village of Krondorf in the mid-1800s, thus forming the initial foundations of what would eventually become the Barossa Valley as it is known today. The wine used fruit sourced from some of the region’s oldest vines, which are then cold-soaked for 48 hours before a 10-day primary fermentation on skins. After this, 121 Settlers Old Vine Shiraz was aged in a mix of new and used French oak barrels for 18 months.

The Stone Altar Old Vine Shiraz 2022 is crafted from low-yielding old vines in the Barossa sub-regions of Light Pass and Lyndoch. These are harvested at optimum ripeness and matured carefully in French oak casks for 18 months. This Shiraz will continue to develop in complexity up until 2030. 

The Stone Altar Grenache 2022 was vinified for seven days on skins prior to being aged in large-format French oak casks for 12 months. Drink now or up until 2028.

The Kingship Cabernet Sauvignon, the most budget friendly of the collection, underwent 18 months of barrel aging in new and second-use French oak. 

The 121 Settlers Old Vine Shiraz retails at $110, the Stone Altar Shiraz and Grenache at $65 each, and the Kingship Cabernet Sauvignon at $38.

According to Badrice, “the wines are deep, generous, and brimming with Barossa character and whilst drinking beautifully now they will continue to reward with time in the cellar.”

Krondorf’s 2024 annual collection is available for purchase via its online store, select Dan Murphy’s stores, and at Krondorf Wines Barossa Valley Cellar Door & Wine Bar.
