Schild Estate Ben Schild Reserve Shiraz 2013


Schild Estate continue to impress. The quality delivered here for the price is impressive. Another ten dollars could be added and you wouldn't blink.


This Shiraz spent 24 months in a range of oak, and it's presentation is on point. Some fruit sweetness is evident yet typical Barossan characters ring true. Vanilla, chocolate, dark fruits and berries. A whiff of violets and a suggestion of mulberries get my attention too.

To taste and it's earthy with the flow on from the aromas to the palate seamless. The fruit drives through yet it's power is measured and soft presence framed with wood spices and finishing with a dusty/chalky like tannin. Delicious and well worth a look.

Drink now but will cellar long term.
