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.

  • Schild Estate Old Vine Bush Grenache-Mourvedre-Syrah Barossa 2011


    Big aromas of dried herbs, green spices, green olive, leather and gamy fowl greet the nose along with rusty red berry fruit and some emerging vanilla. Big and weight in the mouth, this has some viscosity to it and while I prefer my wine a bit leaner and fresher this does deliver a rich and soft mouthful of dark berry and slightly plummy fruit la...

  • Schild Estate Shiraz 2010


    The acid was apparent on the finish along with some heat. The attack was raspberry/cherry but this wine could have been better balanced. Read More

  • Schild Estate Shiraz Barossa Valley Ben Schild Reserve 2011


    A nice Shiraz from Barossa Valley. A rustic mouthfeel with lots of dark fruit, dark chocolate, and leather. Definitely coats your mouth and offers a long finish. I wouldn't say this is your typical Shiraz as it didn't have the normal spice, but was more round. Very much enjoyed the complexity and will do again. Read More
