Schild Estate Narrow Road 2018

 


That wonderous Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet basking in all its glory. Find this and indulge. What a belter!

A 66/34 blend, this is a masterful hand of winemaking coupled with an excellent vintage. 

Cherry ripe in a glass one could say, it gets in deep yet has a silky touch. A small tasting is easily turned into a heavy pour. Dark chocolate, dense plums, dark cherries and fine oak add to the interest. It swerves and bends on its agile feet caressing the mouth with ease. There is a density and elegance, spice and curiosity too, leaving graphite and powdery like tannins in its wake. The detail and beauty are chiseled into its frame leaving you no option but to embrace. And that I did. Not many sample bottles are drained - this one was. Salute and welcome to the exclusive club. Bravo!
