The nose opens a bit thin at uncorking, with hints of rum and eggnog surrounding black fruit aromas. The palate contains strong flavors of tobacco and blackberry, with black cherry intermingling. Silky smooth and clean finish. This wine seems a bit overrated by Wine Spectator, and that may cost it some of its appeal as it will struggle to live up to such high expectations.

Garnet-black colour with deep intensity. Cherries, ripe red tree fruit and spice on the nose. Well-balanced with good mouthfeel and smooth, ripe taninns. Red tree fruit, plums and spice on the palate with a medium-long finish.

Beautiful, complex wine with great finish and mouth feel. Huge tobacco/cigar flavour, mixed with dark berry/plum palate. High alcohol but with decanting and lots of air, creates well balanced, heady drink. Great to drink now and will be good for many years. Would be lovely on it's own with a high quality cigar! Also a great value wine.

Rich on the palate with plum and ripe cherries. A note of vanilla. '06 vintage also good but quite smoky.

While Schild’s behaviour is probably bad form, I’m drinking the 2008 vintage (first batch) right now and it’s fantastic. I love all things Schild I just wish more would come to Canada!!!!

This wine shows a nose of ripe cherries, rich spices and licorice with some vanillin undertones derived from the extended maturation in select new and old American oak. On the palate the flavors explode in a fusion of complext oak and well integrated tannins with a backbone of ripe black plums.

Ben Schild Reserve Shiraz 2005 - Schild Estate: Ben Schild Reserve Shiraz 2005 - Rotwein von Schild EstateDieser Rotwein ist ein Großartiger. Im Glas zeigt er sich tief rubinrot. Sein Bouquet betört mit Aromen von dunkler Schokolade, Pflaumen und Kirschen, dazu pfeffrige und rauchige Noten. Der Geschmack ist äußerst intensiv, kräftige reife Kirschen, Himbeeren, dunkle Schokolade und Lakritze. Den Gaumen umspielen weiche, gut austarierte Tannine und eine feine Säure. Ein schön rundes Mundgefühl und feine Holzaromen verwöhnen den Genießer. Der Ben Schild Reserve Shiraz 2005 ist ein Rotwein mit kräftigem Körper. Sein weiches, warmes Finale mit Anklängen von Vanille und Butterscotch krönt den Abschluss. Genießen Sie ihn einfach pur.Weingut: Schild EstateLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 15 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,5 g/lRestsüße: trockenLagerfähigkeit: 15 bis 20 JahreFassreife: 12 Monate in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 bis 18°C Rotwein > Australien > Barossa Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

This Shiraz has become a real favourite of ours over the last few vintages. It has aromas of ripe cherries, rich spices and liquorice with some vanillin undertones derived from the extended maturation in new and old American oak. It is rich and warming on the palate with complex oak, well integrated tannins with and a backbone of ripe black plums.
