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

Very dark purple. Quite a complex nose--can detect pepper and what seems to be oak. However, the back label seems to indicate that this wine was not oaked. Complex nose, meet complex palate. Waves of fruit--plums, table grapes--flow through the mouth. Distinct pepper note. Slight tannic dryness, but not really significant. Fairly smoothe on the back of the palate, and a fairly short finish. Back label also says cellaring will be rewarded. I don't know about that. I'm sure that this wine would not be hurt by cellaring, but I question what could happen. If the layers of sensory experiences could be harmonized a bit, then mayybe there would be improvement. US$11.99 at Total Wine.

Some floral tones and an interesting, blood-like metallic tone. Soil, spice, tobacco and toasted oak also on the nose. Nice texture with flavors of plum, cola, ginger, sassafrass, au jus, white pepper, spice all accenting red and purple fruit. 3/10/12
