It is with considerable regret that we have to relay the news of the death of Carl Linder in the Barossa Valley outside Adelaide.

Carl was many things to many people – a champion Aussie Rules footballer, builder, developer, winery owner of major importance, a massive promoter of the Barossa – and a deep lover of Jaguar cars.

Carl acquired a very large number of Jaguars, including four significant S.S.1s, while also building beautiful replica C and D-Types.

He and Matthew Wiesner, MD of Jaguar Land Rover Australia, and also born in South Australia, met last Christmas and spoke of working together on projects to utilise Jaguars and Barossa assets into the future.

Carl is on the left in the group image, with Matthew second on the right.

Carl had battled cancer for a number of years, and lived way past what was predicted – but he was a determined man! ┬áHe was 73 when he died on Sunday.

He will be deeply missed, and we send his family and friends our very deepest sympathies on their loss.
