Winemaker's Notes:

#43 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The color of this wine is a vibrant rich red It has a nose of ripe cherries, rich spices and licorice with some vanillin undertones, derived from the extended maturation in new and old American oak. On the palate the flavors explode in a fusion of complex oak and well integrated tannins with a backbone of ripe black plums.

My Notes:

About Schild Estate:

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. Ben transformed the land into a mixed farm with a focus on sustainable viticulture. Schild Estate's vineyards include some of the oldest in Australia including the famous Moorooroo vineyard near Jacob's Creek, which was planted in 1847 by William and John Jacob. Ed’s vineyard site selection has favoured the cooler, southern end of the Barossa near Lyndoch, which enjoys a slower and longer ripening period – perfect for optimum grape flavour development.

These generous wines are spearheaded by the iconic Moorooroo Shiraz, demonstrating regional integrity and illustrating Schild Estate’s reputation as Pure Barossa.Schild Estate wines are an expression of the southern Barossa, which enjoys a slower and longer ripening period – perfect for optimum grape flavour development.
