Schild Estate own over 134ha of estate vineyards throughout the Southern Barossa including some of the oldest vines in the world planted in 1847. Spread across 11 unique sites they produce a range of premium fruit. Having such an intimate knowledge of these site allows the winemaking and vineyard teams to achieve an absolute synergy from vineyard to winery to wine.

Under the guidance of Chief Winemaker Scott Hazeldine who works in close collaboration with Head Vigneron, Mick Schild the Schild Estate team are passionate in their belief that the best wines are driven by the unique characteristics of each vineyard which makes Schild Estate wines an authentic reflection of the terroir in the region.

Aromatically complex and layered this wine first shows notes of dark plums, blueberries and chocolate before more earthy, mineral hints of dusty red earth and boot polish peak from behind. The palate is marked by a controlled creamy mouthfeel with the same primary dark fruit and chocolate notes evident before a fine tannin frame works around the edges and provides just enough framing to allow the fruit a targeted line of travel through the palate. Structural, mineral and bright.

Pair this wine with grilled or roast beef especially served rare or with a pepper sauce. Also, barbecued ribs, sausages or smoked brisket or grilled vegetables. For the cooler months, this wine begs for a rich osso bucco dish.

This product is part of the LCBO December Classics Catalogue. It will take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered from its release date.

Vines planted '00, hand-picked and bunch-sorted, open-fermented, 4-day cold soak, 12-day ferment, some further maceration post-ferment, standard Schild schedule of oak handling. Intense, focused black fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate. The tannins are balanced, even though they are quite firm. Drink by: 2041.
