2021 Schild Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley

From: $19.99

2021 Schild Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley – Ed Schild and the Southern Barossa’s best soils go hand in hand in creating renowned wines. Weathering highs and lows, Ed worked to grow a down to earth family business of vignerons. Today, his passion and ethos for working a vineyard to harvest vibrant fruit is deeply rooted in his family. The legacy Ed started keeps producing wine that speaks of a sense of place. Each bottle is a reward embodying dedicated vine know-how.

This wine is fermented in stainless steel open fermenters before undergoing secondary malolactic fermentation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. There is a focus on minimal handling and the use of oak for structural framing rather than imparting significant oak flavour. The wine is matured for 12-14 months in barrel before usually undergoing a light filtration and fining if deemed appropriate prior to bottling.

Deep, ruby, purple in colour. Dark plum, blackberry and mulberry fruit show early on the nose along with just a hint of aniseed. Once on the palate the same controlled primary plum and hedgerow fruit flavours reappear providing a touch of mid palate weight before being joined by fleeting glimpses of liquorice and menthol. A bright acid line and a fine, but ever-present tannin frame provides focus and a sense of tension to the wine especially in its youth. Will benefit from time in the cellar.
