Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz

Schild Estate Wines are created with an authenticity and passion that comes from generations of a family who have made their home in the Southern Barossa.

This wine comes from a blend of Shiraz grapes from select parcels of vineyards including ‘Workshop’, ‘Angus Brae’ and ‘Three Springs’. Angus Brae is located in Altona between Rowland Flat and Lyndoch, named after Ed Schild’s grandson (Michael’s eldest). Three Springs Farm Vineyard is located at the site of the original family Estate. The classic example of Barossa Shiraz with an exceptional elegance.

Description

TECHNICAL DATA
Alcohol 14.5%
Total acidity 5.85 g/l
pH 3.56

APPEARANCE
Dark ruby/purple in colour.

NOSE
Prominent, but controlled aromas of blood plums, mulberries and brambly hedge row fruit supported by fainter hints of dark chocolate and subtle pepper spice.

PALATE
In the mouth the same dark fruit notes persist and roll in waves out through the back of the palate, bordered by a fine, but ever present tannin frame.

AGEING
The wine is matured for 12-14 months in barrel with a focus on minimal handling and the use of oak for structural framing rather than imparting significant oak flavour.

PAIRING
Excellent with BBQ ribs and spicy sausage, but also with an everyday club sandwich.

READINESS FOR DRINKING
Drink now until 2028.
