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'.
