Schild Estate Shiraz 2010
Colour: Ruby red with purple hues. Bouquet: A nose of rich ripe blackcurrants, dark morello cherries and clove spice. Palate: Plush, soft berry fruits and flvours of dark chocolate and mocha are supported by a fine tannin framework and hints of dry roasted nuts derived from some well balanced and integrated oak presence.
The acid was apparent on the finish along with some heat. The attack was raspberry/cherry but this wine could have been better balanced.
Nose of red and blue berry with cola and mineral. Spicy on the palate with black olive and tar with blackberry and spice with a supple, refined texture. Rich and juicy with mouthwatering finish that lingers. Nice. 91 pts. 2/16/13
