The bottle label now features the “gnarled hands of Ed Schild sifting southern Barossan dirt through his fingers”. It’s the first re-design of the core Schild Estate range label in 13 years. The wine itself is matured in both French and American oak.

It’s true to form. Good sweet fruit with a clear hit of sweet, spicy vanillin oak. Blackberry, black cherry, mocha, cloves, some raspberried highlights. There’s nothing terribly plump or generous about it but it’s satisfying nonetheless. Well put together. Minor and pretty much welcome jamminess to the finish. Good buying and drinking.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep ruby with purple hues
Fragrant, full aromas of blackcurrant and morello cherries supported by subtle hints of licorice and cedar wood.
Soft, juicy, dark berry fruit flavours fill the mouth on the front palate along with fleeting glimpses of milk chocolate, violets and sage. This core of primary fruit is framed by a definite, but fine tannin framework providing some scaffolding and allowing the wine to maintain thrust and a clear direction as it travels through the mouth finishing fruity, controlled and long.
