Shiraz or Syrah, as a monovarietal or in a typical Rhône style blend, are both the backbone to very different wines, with diverse opportunities for food pairing. Sometimes brimming with fresh, bright berry fruit, perfect with charcuterie or with lighter meats. Or ranging from medium bodied to full bodied, full of flavours and lots of terroir expression! Noble & delicious in the glass and stylish as a gift!

The Riebeeksrivier farm is situated on the slopes of the Kasteelberg. Blend of 37% Marsanne, 37% Roussanne, 20% Chenin Blanc and 6% Viognier. The grapes were harvested by hand, the wine spent 7 months on the lees in old French oak and stainless steal (15%). Aromas and flavours of crunchy dried autumn leaves, vanilla biscuit, stone fruit, nectarine, peach and apricot and an elegant, dry and refined mouthful. Fresh acidity and a pleasant chalky grip. Complex, structured with delightful mouthfeel and texture. Beautiful integration of oak makes for a long, layered but sophisticated wine.
Wonderful food pairing potential! Mild Asian kitchen with fish and poultry, grilled tuna & vegetarian dishes and stews.
Attractive bouquet of honeysuckle, white fruit, marzipan, hazelnut and flinty minerals.

Schild Estate's Shiraz reflects the soft elegant palate of Schild's viticultural home in the southern portions of the Barossa Valley. The toasted herbs are distinctive, offering rosemary and bay leaf accents to the dried cherry and blackberry core, with accents of fresh orange zest and plenty of cigar box details. Expressive, especially on the finish. Drink to 2023.
Food pairing: loves a chateaubriand and stews (coq au vin!). Try with your best homemade lasagne or pasta with a tomato sauce 'à la provençale'.
