The 2019 Schild Estate Barossa Valley Shiraz has bright and lively aromatic notes of blackcurrant and mulberry fruit follows through to the palate where they are joined by some classic black pepper spice and dark chocolate. The palate shows some early mouth-filling roundness before a subtle lattice tannin frame provides genuine structure, balance and control as the wine moves through the mouth.

Winery & Vintage Info

Schild Estate Wines are created with an authenticity and passion that comes from generations of a family who have made their home in the Southern Barossa.

The Schild Estate Shiraz 2019 vintage comes from a blend of Shiraz grapes from select parcels of vineyards including ‘Workshop’, ‘Angus Brae’ and ‘Three Springs’. Angus Brae is located in Altona between Rowland Flat and Lyndoch, named after Ed Schild’s grandson (Michael’s eldest). Three Springs Farm Vineyard is located at the site of the original family Estate.

The 2019 growing season commenced with a warmer than average winter and spring before a combination of a couple of hot spells and then near perfect conditions eventuated later in the season as we closed in on harvest dates. This all resulted in some early harvest sugar accumulation in some blocks without necessarily the required flavour development in the grapes. A year when there was no substitute for winemakers spending significant time in the vineyards. If this was done and canopies and moisture was managed well, the flavour components did catch up and whilst yields were low, the resulting quality was very good.

This wine is fermented in stainless steel open fermenters before undergoing secondary malolactic fermentation in new and seasoned oak hogsheads. There is a focus on minimal handling and the use of oak for structural framing rather than imparting significant oak flavour. The wine is matured for 12-14 months in barrel before usually undergoing a light filtration and fining if deemed appropriate prior to bottling. Winery Notes
