The bottle label now features the “gnarled hands of Ed Schild sifting southern Barossan dirt through his fingers”. It’s the first re-design of the core Schild Estate range label in 13 years. The wine itself is matured in both French and American oak.
It’s true to form. Good sweet fruit with a clear hit of sweet, spicy vanillin oak. Blackberry, black cherry, mocha, cloves, some raspberried highlights. There’s nothing terribly plump or generous about it but it’s satisfying nonetheless. Well put together. Minor and pretty much welcome jamminess to the finish. Good buying and drinking.
