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 vigneron’s work side by side to solidify Schild Estate’s reputation, built on its commitment to translating the unique tapestry of its vineyards into wines that speak of honesty and a sense of place.

“Oh yum. Comfort me with mourvèdre and other old vine grapes. Rich, complex and deep: exactly what you want in a partner (and a wine). Full-bodied and smooth and inviting.”

Polished and spicy, with ripe cherry, spice and white chocolate flavors that linger on the smooth finish. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Shiraz. Drink now through 2017.

Deep red. Aromas of red fruits, rose, lavender and cracked pepper, with a smoky overtone. Tangy redcurrant and raspberry flavors show very good clarity and pick up a subtle floral pastille quality with air, along with a touch of botanical herbs. Closes with good energy and cut and a note of tangy berry.
Medium bodied in weight, the 2011 highlights the vibrant red berry fruit and spice component of this wine.
Colour: Dark ruby red
Bouquet: Ripe red cherries and spice.
Palate: Juicy red berry old vine Grenache fruit presents itself on the front palate whilst the Mourvedre and Shiraz provide structure, concentration and depth. Hints of white pepper and spice are evident with a soft tannin framework ensuring a supple, soft texture to finish. Cellaring: Drink to 2016.
Made without the use of oak, this wine derives its depth of flavour and complexity from the blending of three varieties, while early bottling ensures freshness.
