SCHILD ESTATE WINES

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

Ed Schild is a BarossaValley grapegrower who first planted a small vineyard at Rowland Flat in 1952, steadily increasing his vineyard holdings over the next 50 years to their present level. The flagship wine is made from 170-year-old shiraz vines on the Moorooroo Vineyard. The cellar door is in the old ANZ Bank at Lyndoch, and provides the sort of ambience that can only be found in the Barossa Valley. Exports to all major markets.

About

Schild Estate Wines has established vineyards in the Barossa Valley since 1952. Ed and Lorraine Schild have developed 165ha of plantings over 12 unique vineyard sites in the southern region of the Barossa Valley, specialising in growing Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and bush-vine Grenache. They make premium Barossa reds of quality and character, best known for their flagship wine Schild Estate Moorooroo Vineyard Shiraz. This wine is harvested from original Barossa vines planted by Johan and William Jacob in 1847, between Jacobs Creek and the North Para River. Moorooroo translates to ‘the meeting of two waters’ in Australia’s first language. Schild Estate 2015 Moorooroo Shiraz was rated in James Halliday’s Wine Companion (2019 edition) at 99 points, and Schild Estate is classified as a 5-star winery.

At Schild Estate you can still shake hands with 3 generations of the family. All our wines come from the Southern Barossa, where our vineyards, winery and tasting room are all located.
