2015 SCHILD ESTATE MOOROOROO BAROSSA VALLEY SHIRAZ
RRP $150 / 2055
From four rows of vines planted in 1847 by the Jacob brothers, saved in 1984 by Ed Schild from the jaws of the Vine Pull Scheme. A Leviathan bottle to end all comparisons, and arguably appropriate for a wine of this stature. Best of all is the wine’s elegance and balance, the fruits purple and black, the tannins fine and gently persistent, the oak a means to an end. This is only the start of a story that will take its next huge step in 2047. 14.5% alc.
WINEMAKER Scott Hazeldine What do you love most about making this wine?
Even in a place such as the Barossa, vineyards of this age and ilk are relatively rare. Being able to showcase this concentrated old vine fruit tempered with a sense of control and refreshment has been really pleasing for us all.
