Schild Estate Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

All the good things about the Barossa are on show with this Shiraz, multi-generational grape growers, old vines, traditional winemaking and a whole lotta love. The net result is a classic approachable Shiraz - a wine of generosity yet power, flavour yet silken edges. A lovely Shiraz in other words at a very tidy price.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Dark cherry red, with purple, black hues.

Nose: Expressive dark berry fruit, a hint of creaminess and some subtle controlled oak spice.

Palate: Abundant, soft up front notes of plums and blackcurrant are followed by a deep inky feel to the wine, all of which provide a fullness of mouth feel before a fine tannin frame arrives to provide a clear direction and structure . The dark berry fruit returns to help the wine roll out through a long, comforting finish.

Cellaring: Drink to 2020.
