The modern Australian Wine Industry can be described as a tapestry of Western Culture, peppered with Eastern influences.

The early European Migrants arrived in Australia in the mid 1840s, many coming to avoid religious persecution. The hardships endured are unimaginable by contemporary standards, yet these pioneers from Germany, Italy, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Greece, Switzerland, Ukraine, Russia and Poland created the basis of the wine industry that has conquered the world, through its superb flavour packed wines.

The Schild story dates back to 1866 when the family immigrated from Poland – as part of an exodus from religious persecution. . For many years the Schilds toiled the harsh farmlands of the Mallee country near Lameroo. In 1952, a 40 acre farm was purchased in the BarossaValley, the Three Springs farm, which had a small vineyard included. Over the years the Schilds have expanded their holding, growing fruit mainly for other people. In 1998, the bold step of crushing 7 tonnes of grapes was made, which produced 450 cases of wine.

Today the Schild’s holdings extend to over 380 acres, with production of a wide variety of red and white wine.


Tasting Note: Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Perfumed nose, displaying outstanding lifted Cabernet notes of violets, followed by blackcurrant, spice and cassis. Generous palate flavour profile with ripe blackcurrants followed by a hint of tobacco and spice. Fine grained tannins, perfect balance. Very long aftertaste of spice and blackcurrant.

Other Reviews...
Good colour; a fragrant bouquet, then riper blackcurrant, blackberry, chocolate and mocha flavours; ripe tannins, a touch of cigar box.
