AT SCHILD ESTATE YOU CAN STILL SHAKE HANDS WITH FAMILY MEMBERS FROM THREE GENERATIONS WHO HAVE BECOME THE FAMILY’S HEART.
Schild Estate wines are created with authenticity and passion. From real earth in the Southern Barossa by generations of a family who have made that place their home.
Sourced from a number of carefully selected vineyard parcels in and around Lyndoch and Rowland Flat. Schild Estate’s Barossa Shiraz is designed to reflect the soft elegant palate of Schild’s viticultural home in the Southern portions of the Barossa Valley.
Despite some early heat during November, the 2010 vintage was characterised by ideal ripening conditions with warm sunny days and relatively cool nights. This allowed flavours to develop at their own pace and gave our winemaking team room to move in order to determine the exact optimum time to pick. The resulting wines from this vintage have clearly benefited and are showing a real depth of flavour and balance.
Colour: Ruby red with purple hues.
Bouquet: A nose of rich ripe blackcurrants, dark morello cherries and clove spice.
