Description
Highlight

Schild is one of the most respected names in Barossa viticulture. Relative latecomers to the region, they established their plantings in 1952 after three decades of adversity in the Mallee. A careful selection of the ripest and plumpest Merlot grapes is harvested off the elite Schild estate Angas Brae property. Fully fragrant and juicy to the palate, Schild displays an abundance of rich fruit characters so essential of good Barossa Merlot. Rich in flavour yet elegant to the finish, a splendid Merlot that drinks beautifully and will compliment many different cuisines.

An industrious viticultural team at Schild strive to replant and redevelop the ancient estate, incorporating old fashioned winegrowing techniques and local folklore with modern quality controls. The timeless and enduring land management traditions of Barossa mean that each property will continue to produce quality fruit. Grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and sent to vinification as promptly as possible to minimise characteristic loss of good colour. Batches are inoculated whilst in contact with skins for maximum extraction. Upon completion, Schild is treated to a year's maturation in a combination of new and prior use French oak hogsheads, followed by racking, clarification and minimal filtration.

Dark cherry red hue. Rich aromas of black plums and cherry, herbs and cinnamon spice. A supple and textured palate, the nose follows through with even greater complexity and weight of fruit. Fine grained tannins balance with the youthful acidity. A wine of textures as much as taste, elegant and capable of complimenting many different food styles with rewarding pleasure.
