Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz 2012

Member Review by rckr1951:

Another success story and a continuing cellar selection for me and my friends. Good red berry and blueberry fruit profile, with accenting pepper, chocolate, spice and anise with tannins and great acidity make for a lengthy aftertaste. This is always a great pairing for Mexican food. Paul 90 points

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.

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. Ben’s son Ed took over the property at the tender age of 16, after his sudden death in 1956. Through careful management and a keen eye for premium Barossa vineyards Ed has cemented himself as one of the largest independent premium grape growers in the region with over 400 acres under vine. 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 drinkability. 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. Read less

Herbal nose of sage, thyme and rosemary. Dark red and blue fruit, dark plum, blueberry. Flavors of plum, blueberry, spice and roasted meat. It carries a sweet, ripe finish of blueberry, black cherry, red raspberry, cola and white pepper. 3/10/12

Got this as a gift and had my doubts. This shiraz was mouth filling and had all the flavors that you read about but seldom get. It has it all including very gentle tannins. A very deep dark purple. The finish was both moderate and very satisfying. A super wine at this price point.

Intense on the nose. I kept swirling and sniffing,. Intoxicating and draws you into the glass. Spicy, cherry, sage. Absolutely delightful. Will invest in several bottles. Just very nice by itself or paired with cheese that can stand up to the powerhouse Shiraz. Parm-Regg is great with this wonderful wine.
