Krondorf is proud to announce the release of its 2024 Collection on 16th May 2024. The release comprises four exceptional wines that pay homage to the enduring spirit of Krondorf’s early settlers while expressing the distinctive terroir of the Barossa Valley.

The new vintage releases mark Krondorf’s fourth annual collection and include the 121 Settlers Shiraz 2020, Stone Altar Grenache 2022, Stone Altar Shiraz 2022, and Kingship Cabernet Sauvignon 2022. These four wines were sourced from exceptional sites, including a limited selection of old vine vineyards. The wines are made with minimal intervention, allowing the site and fruit to shine through in the wine.

The 2024 Collection was guided by the expert hand of Krondorf’s Chief Winemaker, Nick Badrice, who brings 25 years' worth of Barossa winemaking experience to Krondorf. 

“The wines encompass the 2020 and 2022 vintage seasons, two years that gave low yields but fantastic fruit quality. With the Barossa Valley being perfectly set up for growing outstanding fruit, it’s my job to intervene as little as possible and let the vineyard sites, vintage conditions, and fruit be reflected in the wines.” Badrice said. 

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

121 Settlers Old Vine Shiraz 2020 

121 Settlers Old Vine Shiraz 2020 pays homage to the 121 settlers who settled the village of Krondorf in the mid-1800s and formed the beginning of a new community that shaped the future of the Barossa Valley.

The wine is handcrafted from exceptional fruit sourced from some of the Barossa Valley's oldest vines. The crushed fruit is cold-soaked for 48 hours before primary fermentation is initiated. A 10-day fermentation on skins occurs before the wine is pressed to a mix of new and used French oak barrels where it's matured for a period of 18 months.

RRP $110

Stone Altar Shiraz & Grenache

Named after the stone altar that Krondorf’s early Silesian settlers constructed at the foot of the Kaiserstuhl, which sits within the Barossa ranges, these wines are a tribute to the settlers’ resourcefulness and resilience. 

Stone Altar Old Vine Shiraz 2022

This 2022 Shiraz is handcrafted from very low-yielding old vines from exceptional sites in the sub-regions of Light Pass and Lyndoch, harvested at optimum ripeness and matured carefully in French oak casks for 18 months. This Shiraz will develop beautifully with age with the potential to cellar until 2030.  

RRP $65

Stone Altar Grenache 2022

The 2022 Grenache was handcrafted from two exceptional vineyard sites. It was vinified in small-format open fermenters for seven days of skin contact to extract colour and tannins, then matured in large premium French oak casks for 12 months. This Grenache has fantastic cellaring potential to 2028. 

RRP $65

Kingship Cabernet Sauvignon 2022

Named after Tanunda’s historic annual Kingship Competition in which locals competed to become the famed ‘King’ marksman of the year, this wine represents the pursuit of accuracy and defence of place.

This wine was sourced from Krondorf’s Kingship Vineyard on Rifle Range Road, Krondorf, home to black cracking clay soils that produce Cabernet Sauvignon fruit of superior quality. The individual parcels of fruit were vinified in small stainless steel fermenters and aged in new and second-use French oak barrels for 18 months.

This wine will mature well in the cellar until 2028. 

RRP $38

Krondorf’s 2024 annual collection will be available at krondorfwines.com.au, select Dan Murphy’s and at Krondorf Wines Barossa Valley Cellar Door & Wine Bar from May 16th.

About Krondorf Wines

The village of Krondorf, as we know it, dates back to 1847 when a group of Silesian settlers arrived in South Australia seeking a better life. They found it in a small hamlet, which they named ‘Krondorf’, meaning ‘Crown Village’ in German.  The families that formed this tight-knit community shaped the future of the Barossa Valley. 

The Krondorf community was bound together by three values: love, faith and hope. These ideals were central to life in the village and can still be seen today on the old marble headstones at Krondorf cemetery.

Today, Krondorf Wines honours this legacy by putting love, faith, and hope into everything it does, producing wines that reflect the provenance of the Barossa Valley, guided by Chief Winemaker Nick Badrice.
