Schild Estate Merlot 2018 (Barossa Valley)

Schild Estate's 2018 vintage Merlot is a dark ruby hue. With an inviting almost silky nose, marked by prominent fruit aromas of plum, dark cherry and raspberry which float above and around more subtle glimpses of vanilla bean, clove and nutmeg spice. In the mouth that same juicy primary fruit and vanilla bean character shows, this time alongside flavours of mocha and a faint graphite core. Enveloped and pinned-in just enough by some present but soft tannins ensuring some genuine balance and providing the wine with an almost velvet mouthfeel.

Schild Estate wines are created with authenticity and passion. From real earth in the Southern Barossa by generations of a family who have made that place their home.

Harvested in the cool of the early hours, the fruit is crushed to traditional open top fermenters where a combination of soft handling techniques are used to try and obtain a balance between the plush round textural qualities so often associated with Merlot and some interest and structure from work on the soft tannins.

Reasonable spring and winter rain saw adequate soil moisture during the growing season with healthy canopies heading into the growing season. January and February were dry, slowing the pace of ripening down and keeping yields lower than initially predicted. Moisture and canopy management were therefore key to reducing stress and maintaining health. When that was achieved the red wines produced from the region in 2018 are of high quality and showing genuine promise early on. Winery Notes
