Uniquely Australian and heartily embraced in the Barossa, Sparkling Shiraz has been a part of the Schild family's stable of wines right from the early days. Ed Schild quickly realised that the soft dark berry fruit, fine tannins and vibrant acid so often seen in Shiraz sourced from in and around Lyndoch in the southern Barossa made it an area ideally suited to making “red fizz”.
Over many years he and his son Michael have worked with their winemakers to find the right blocks to showcase and to refine the style. It is a continuing journey, but a thoroughly fun and enjoyable one.
