Description

Schild Estate's Canadian wine club launch marks the first of its kind. Pure Barossa will be sending members classic Schild wines that Canadians have continued to embrace over the years. The dedicated Schild club will also allow members to experience Schild wines never before tasted in Canada.

Sourced from a number of carefully selected estate vineyard parcels in an 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. The wines from 2014 show much promise, however some late growing season heat and rain episodes ensured that it was not without some anxious moments for the winemakers along the way. A certain amount of nerve was required, but mother nature came to the party in the end and mild perfect conditions late in the season ensured we made it home really happy with the vintage. Cellaring potential until 2022, serve at 18C.

Eyes

Dark ruby, with purple, black hues.

Nose

Open, aromatic red and dark berry fruit aromas combine alongside subtle glimpses of dark chocolate and controlled oak spice. The classic example of Barossa Shiraz with exceptional elegance.

Mouth

The soft, deep red and black fruit notes seen together on the nose also show in abundance on the palate where they are accompanied by a fresh acid line and a super fine tannin frame. These ensure some real balance to the wine and a drinkability and moorishness so often found in Barossa Shiraz.
