BEN SCHILD ANGUS BRAE VINEYARD SHIRAZ 2019 Single vineyard, Barossa Valley, South Australia
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer SCHILD ESTATE
This hefty, well structured, Barossa Valley ANGUS BRAE VINEYARD offers an avalanche of huge, intense, ripe flavours. It has an extremely deep intense purple colour and a complex, intense, spicy, very faintly smoky, cedary, ripe, black cherry puree nose with some earthy hints of dark chocolate. Itís dry and full bodied with grippy, mouthfilling, ripe but still fresh, harmonious, black cherry flavours. The lingering, well-balanced finish shows good acidity and outstanding density. Aged separately for 18 months in French, American and Hungarian oak, it has 14.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L21041 on the back label and on the lower part of the glass bottle. Screwcap closure. You an drink it now or wait for another decade! CSPC 58727

TASTING NOTE: Aged just 16, Ed Schild took over the running of his family vineyard following the tragic death of his father in 1956. This wine is a tribute to his father, Ben Schild, made from carefully selected fruit grown in a single vineyard overlooking Lyndoch. It is fermented in open top fermenters, then aged for 18 months in an eclectic mix of French, American and Hungarian oak. Tina Gellie: Fresh, pure bramble aromas are lifted by a floral edge. The weighty, meaty palate has nice juicy, sappy red fruits and dusty tannins, with appealing Chinese five spice notes. Well done! Roger Jones: Spiced, juicy and voluptuous on the palate, with a lovely meaty, bacon character intertwined with luscious red and black fruits which linger on the palate. It's a luscious wine that's crying out for pork belly. Anthony Rose: A good, rich colour and attractively spicy aromatics lead into a full-bodied, full-throttle palate. Spicy, sweet blackcurrant fruit tapers nicely to a seductive finish. It has a juicy texture, and background notes of pepper and spice. A lovely wine. Drinking window: 2018-2025.
