    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 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. Here is the latest instalment from this burgeoning family empire.

    ‘Schild Estate is back in top form with this rich, fleshy Barossa Shiraz at a knockout price.’

    Excellent colour displaying an inky black core and a deep dark crimson red black hue. Scented aromas of liquorice and ripe blackberries arise from the glass followed by some black cherries, vanillin confectionary and spice. Full, rich and sumptuously textured the palate features luscious flavours of ripe blackberries, liquorice and subtle black cherries over a back drop of spicy vanillin oak. Round opulent texture with velvety tannins delivering a level of power and richness well beyond its price point. Long aftertaste of ripe blackberries, liquorice, black cherries, toasty vanillin oak and spice.
    Drink over the next 5-6 years.
