SCHILD ESTATE BAROSSA GMS (GRENACHE, MOURVEDRE & SHIRAZ) 2016, 75 CL
Schild Estate wines are created with authenƟcity and passion. From real earth in the Southern Barossa by generaƟons of a
family who have made that place their home. his blend of Grenache (52%), Mourvedre (24%) and Shiraz (24%) is an
homage to the great wines of the Southern Rhone, but with a very Barossan accent. These three classic red wine varieƟes are blende:d to
showcase the unique qualiƟes of each whilst ensuring balance, purity of fruit and the utmost drinkability .
Colour: Dark cherry red , ruby
Bouquet: InviƟng red fruit aromas of fresh cherries, red currants and raspberries combine with some blue fruit notes upfront before a hint of
stony minerality and subtle notes of pepper spice, lavender and garrigue
herb emerge from behind.
Palate: Vibrant red berry and raspberry fruit show early on the palate providing a pillowy, velvet like feel to the wine early on. This fruity opening
envelopes a firm Mataro core driving down the middle. Some white pepper spice provides an additional layer of interest and a super fine tannin
presence provides some balance, containment and focus to the fruit.
