Estate Range

2016 Schild Estate Barossa Valley GMS

Clear, bright dark ruby in colour. Prominent lifted, aromas of dark cherries, plums and red currants that sit alongside slightly more subtle glimpses of some darker fruit, violet flower perfume and pepper spice. The vibrant red and dark berry juicy fruit mix of grenache and shiraz shows early on the palate providing a pillowy, velvet like feel to the wine early on. This fruity opening envelopes around a firm mourvédre core which provides some bluer fruits and a sturdy structure on which to hang. Some white pepper spice and faint smoky notes provide an additional layer of interest and a super fine tannin presence provides some balance, containment and focus to the fruit which rolls right though to the end.
