About the Wine

The Schild Estate Shiraz is an easy-drinking wine with a lot of character. Fermented in stainless steel, the wine is then matured on new and old oak, the former for fruit and the latter for structure. The nose is all black and red fruits (blackcurrant and mulberry), with pepper and chocolate now showing as well.

The palate is rich, and despite this being an entry-level wine, it shows lovely concentration and roundness on the palate, with fine tannins giving it some grip in the mouth. While it's 14.5% alcohol, everything is in balance. A nice wine at a great price.

About Schild Estate

Schild Estate's story begins in 1952 with the purchase of a vineyard by Ben and Alma Schild in the Barossa Valley. After Ben died unexpectedly in 1956, his 16-year-old son Ed took over the family grapegrowing business. It wasn't until 1998 that Ed decided to stop just growing the grapes and actually produce the estate's first wine.

Since then the Schild Moorooroo Shiraz, made from four rows of vines planted in 1847, has shown itself to be an outstanding wine, with the rest of the Schild range presenting great value for money, from their easy-drinking reds and whites up to their premium drops.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Peppercorns and plums. This wine is awash with the flavours of them. It’s a very good release, forward and fruit-driven, full of running, generous. It’s almost as if the wine comes at you; it has that kind of momentum, that kind of energy. Add choc, chicory and earth notes and you get the picture. Put this on your buy list." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

The Real Review

"Medium-intense ruby hue. Blueberry and mocha notes. Quite powerful fruit on entry, some oak spice adding layers. Flows rich and deep into the finish. A lovely weight of tannins providing the structure to control the fruit intensity" - Stuart Knox (The Real Review)

Wine Pilot

"Succulent and delicious example of a medium bodied Barossa shiraz. Mix of dark spicy plum and mulberry with dark chocolate and a sprinkle of pepper. Oak has been well handled to add additional lifted seasoning and bring the thing to life. Appealing wine for the short term." - Ray Jordan (Wine Pilot)

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
