Overview

Ed Schild purchased the Tweedies Gully vineyard in 1977, noting that with its westerly aspect, high altitude and sandy loam soils, the vineyard was a perfect fit for premium Riesling production.

Taking advantage of the cooling afternoon gully winds, particularly in the Summer, the vineyard whilst located on the Barossa Valley side of the line shows a number of characters more akin to its close neighbour, Eden valley.

A single vineyard expression of this variety and now such an important part of the Schild stable, we can’t imagine life before we made Riesling from this unique patch of Barossa dirt.
