Schild Estate GMS 2016
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa|
Dark ruby, clear and bright in color. Intense notes of dense yet bright redberry compote fruit sit alongside fainter hints of brambly winter hedgerows and Christmas cake spice. A controlled and smooth passage through the palate with a certain ripe fruit presence. The wine remains light on its feet with a real sense of prettiness to the palate which surprises given the intensity of the nose.
Blend: 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, 15% Shiraz
This blend offers bright, bouncy blueberries and plums, with white pepper, game and florals. The palate is light to medium bodied, with plump, juicy red fruit, a satiny texture and a slightly savory spine.
Mint, sage and bay leaf notes are dominant, adding an appealing green and savory profile to the berry and currant flavors at the core, with firm tannins and a spicy, cedary finish. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Shiraz. Drink now.
