Schild Estate Shiraz Barossa Valley 2013

Member Review by rckr1951:

Another solid 2012 down under wine. This had good blueberry, plum, pepper, slight noted mocha and vanilla accents to the chewy tannins and popping acidity. 9(0 points - drink now - Paul

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

This has aged really well. After a slight dumb stage this really turned up the heat. Mostly red fruits (oddly) with a little blueberry thrown in, excellent mnerality, pepper and delicious acidity with tannic support to give a generous mouthfeel and lengthy aftertaste. Drink or hold for up to more 18 months - Paul 90 points
