The Schild story dates back to 1866 when the family immigrated from Europe as part of an exodus from religious persecution. For many years the Schilds toiled the harsh farmlands of Mallee country near Lameroo. In 1952, a 40 acre farm was purchased in the Barossa Valley, 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 seven tonnes of grapes was made, which produced 450 cases of wine.
A bargain priced Barossa Shiraz with plenty of thrust and carry.
Matured in a combination of seasoned French and American oak. Totally opaque black dark red core with a deep bright dark red hue. Lifted dark plum, liquorice and dark cherry aromas blossom from the glass with elements of vanillin oak, fennel and pepper also evident. Plush and opulently textured the palate is decorated with rich spicy dark plum, liquorice, blackberry and subtle blueberry fruit that shows excellent intensity over a back drop of gently toasted vanillin oak, fennel and light pepper. Abundant power with silky tannins and a long fleshy aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
From family vineyards in Lyndoch and Rowland Flat, matured in a mix of French and American oak. It is medium-bodied, and fresh as a daisy with its shower of red and dark cherry fruits. It carries its modest oak with ease, the tannins positive and balanced. Drink by 2035.
