The color on this was somewhat cloudy. However, this was big and rich showing creamy blackberry, plum, roasted fennel and spice that all mix together nicely. The thick mouth-coating finish goes on for minutes.
Wine Maker Notes
The Schild name has a long history in the Barossa, dating back to 1952 when Ben Schild purchased the Three Springs Farm property in Rowland Flat and settled with his family. Today, second and third generation vigneron’s work side by side to solidify Schild Estate’s reputation, built on its commitment to translating the unique tapestry of its vineyards into wines that speak of honesty and drinkability.
Our 2009 Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz is designed to reflect the soft, elegant palate of Schild Estate’s viticultural home in the southern portions of the Barossa Valley. It has been sourced from a number of carefully selected vineyard parcels in and around Lyndoch, picked in the cool of the night and processed in open fermenters at the winery before being matured in a combination of French and American oak.
