Schild Estate Shiraz 2019
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa|
Dark ruby, with purple, black hues. Notes of black fruited plums and mulberries sit alongside glimpses of more red fruited cranberry and goji berries. Controlled and tight. Slippery dark plum and blackcurrant fruit flavors show early on the palate and are supported by more subtle glimpse of chocolate and cocoa. The fruit remains present throughout and rolls out to the back end of the pallet encapsulated along the way by a super fine tannin structure leaving a feeling of control to the wine.
Raspberry puree and black cherry flavors are the focus here, with accents of Earl Grey tea, amaretto and spice box. Shows terrific density to the tannins, which become appealingly chewy on the finish. Drink now through 2033.
Sour berries and green pepper, with a hint of violet. Rich cooked fruit on the palate, with soft tannins and a long finish.
This is a dense, ripe Shiraz with oodles of black cherries and blackberries, chocolatey, cola-like oak and flecks of black olives and dusty Aussie earth. The palate is as rich as the nose suggests, filling the mouth with plush dark berries, a prominent line of oak and dusty tannins, and a little alcohol heat.
