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.

This wine has just received a 96 point rating from Wine Spectator Magazine in the USA. A remarkable achievement given its price point.

An impressive Barossa Shiraz. Opaque black crimson colour with black mauve hue. Perfumed nose of violet, spice, blackberry and vanilla. The palate delivers excellent weight and mouthfeel with flavours of liquorice allsorts, plum, spice, black pepper and vanilla. Fine grained tannins are perfectly balanced. Long aftertaste of vanilla, liquorice allsorts and blackberry. Stocks are limited – be quick.

This practically radiates a range of aromas and flavors, balancing ripe cherry, blackberry and plum fruitwith hints of minerals and sweet spices that sing for days on the finish. Tempting to drink, but you should wait. Best from 2008 through 2020. 96 points Harvey Steiman – Wine Spectator
