Barossa Valley - Schild Estate

The Schild family are pioneers of the Southern Barossa Valley, with plantings of the oldest vines from 1847. Today these are some of the oldest producing Shiraz vines in the world. This multi-generational estate winery is the oldest family owned grape grower and most successful winery in Barossa. Their 330 acres spread across 11 unique vineyard sites takes advantage of the diversity and produce a range of premium fruit. The Schild Estate wine collection is not only from the infamous greater Barossa Valley growing region but specifically from the “Southern Grounds” and Lyndoch.

Southern Grounds – Altitude 112-340m

The southern approaches of the Barossa Valley include vineyards around Williamstown, Lyndoch, and Rowland Flat. The climate here is warm, not hot, and the rainfall is slightly higher than in other parts of the Valley, with soils ranging from sandy looms over clay, to black cracking clay, which we call Biscay. Wines from Lyndoch are medium to full-bodied, generous, lush, refreshing, and elegant with a deep red to purple red color. The tannins are fine and gentle (satiny and powdery), and the wines have a fragrant aroma of red and blue fruits, violets, mint, and chocolate.

Schild Estate Moorooroo Ancestor Vines Shiraz 

Deep ruby, purple in colour showing intense and creamy aromas of dark compote berry fruit with hints of blackberry, plums and mulberries peeking through. On the palate waves of the same dark berry fruit show early providing a density and voluptuousness to the mouth-feel that remains deep into the mouth and rolls out through the back. It is joined by just a hint of spice and some subtle glimpses of faint leather and sandalwood.
