Wine maker notes
Ruby red with purple hues.
A nose of rich ripe blackcurrants, dark morello cherries and clove spice.
Plush, soft berry fruits and flavors of dark chocolate and mocha are supported by a fine tannin framework and hints of dry roasted nuts derived from some well balanced and integrated oak presence.
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 vigneronís work side by side to solidify Schild Estateís
reputation, built on its commitment to translating the unique rapestry of its vineyards into wines that speak of honesty and drinkability.
We aspire to make wines that are genuinely reflective of their location, are true to their variety and place.
Easy to say but not always easy to achieve, we rely on consistent vineyard sourcing to build up an intimate knowledge of the fruit we work with. Keeping our interference in the winery to an absolute minimum with only gentle steering of the wines if required, we provide framing and support to the fruit rather than imposing a style.
We want our wines to tell a story about their specific vintage, what has happened to these special patches of Barossa dirt over the preceding months and most importantly, we want people to enjoy them in the glass.
