Schild Es­tate

2015 SCHILD ES­TATE MOOROOROO BAROSSA VAL­LEY SHI­RAZ

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

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.

15 Moo only avail­able for pur­chase on­line as a part of Hal­l­i­day Pack
