A nose of ripe cherries, rich spices and licorice with some vanillin undertones derived from the extended maturation in new and old American oak. On the palate the flavours explode in a fusion of complex oak and well integrated tannins with a backbone of ripe black plums.

Winemaking Note

The 2008 Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz is another fine example of a classic regional style from this renowned region, with Barossa regionality showing through at its best in this wine. The 2008 growing season had everything. An ideal build up, a very congested ripening period and then a heat wave in early march ensured that it was an exciting and busy vintage for our winemaking and vineyard teams. The Shiraz was picked early to avoid the predicted heat and has reaped the benefits as a result and is characterized by real depth of flavor and great balance.
