Schild Estate Alma Schild Reserve Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This wine is named after the Matriarch of Schild Estate, who raised eight kids whilst supporting her husband, Ben, to establish Schild Estate. After all that, the least Ben could do was name a wine after her! Scents of bright, tropical fruit salad run around the glass, before the palate kicks in with more tropical fruit tangled up with a creamy mouthfeel, roasted nuts from oak, soft acidity and a mellow finish. It's easy to drink, very quaffable and ready to enjoy now.

Winemaker's Notes

Schild Estate wines are created with authenticity and passion. From real earth in the Southern Barossa by generations of a family who have made that place their home.

Appearance: Pale Straw

Nose: Fragrant notes of nectarine and white peac Bouquet hes coupled with more delicate glimpses of ?oral blossom perfume and hints of nuttiness and spice.

Palate: A expansive, complex mouth feel where vibr Palate: ant notes of white peaches and nougat have been softened and accentuated by extended lees stirring and a subtle oak framework, which provides just enough control to ensure that element of balance is retained. Clean citrus pith acidity then provides some freshness, drive and length through to the ?nish.

Cellaring: Drink to 2017

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
You have to admire the bravery in play here: a $20 reserve chardonnay from the Barossa Valley demonstrates immense courage in the face of unlikely success. This is golden in the glass and has a tinned peach and tropical fruit punch character; round and full palate shape. Drink up.
