Barossa Valley - Dark ruby, purple in colour with prominent, but controlled aromas of blood plums, mulberries and brambly hedge row fruit supported by fainter hints of dark chocolate and subtle pepper spice. In the mouth the same primary plum and mulberry notes show early. These dark fruit flavours persist and roll in waves out through the back of the palate, always with a clear line of travel in mind and bordered by a fine, but ever present tannin frame.
The Schild Estate team recently attended the James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion Awards - the night when scores and award were revealed and self-congratulatory wines were poured and toasted to the flurry of points that came our way.
We won't lie, we (responsibly) poured ourselves an extra glass when we found out that the 2016 Moorooroo Shiraz was a snug second in the 'Best of the Best' list by variety and saw five stars all lined up in a row indicating we've again been listed as a Five-Star-Winery.
The good news for you is that you can purchase these high-scorers from our website now and join us in celebrating.
