Schild Estate Shiraz Barossa Valley Moorooroo Block 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has an intense bouquet of complexing spice and leather nuances, ripe cherry fruits and subtly integrated oak notes. On the palate there is generous fruit in an opulent yet elegant style. This is a complex and rewarding wine with an excellent pedigree and is really quite rare - only around 100 dozen is made each year.

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

A wonderful ruby color in the glass. A bit leggy, and a strong cherry scent and a slight mineral tone. Nice and spicy at the front of the tongue. More cherries and blackberry in the middle, and a bit of meat at the back of the mouth. The feel is nice and juicy though the 14.5% will catch up with you.
