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

Pale quartz-green; pleasant fault-free riesling, but its slight sweetness is not balanced by enough acidity. James Halliday, Rating 86, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale lemon, green.
Aromas of lemon, lime powder-puff sherbet are supported by more subtle hints of jasmine and white flowers.
A delicate, light mouth feel with more subtle lemon, lime citrus notes and a hint of mineral bath salts leads into a clean, long perfumed finish with fruit holding well right though to the end.
