Since 1952, the Schild family have lived and worked in the Southern Barossa, growing grapes and creating wines with authenticity and passion, from real Barossa earth, in a place they call home. Moorooroo Limited Release Shiraz is a wine that represents everything the family hold dear. The wine has historical significance, it is a variety the Barossa is best known for and it comes from a vineyard cared for by generations of Barossa families. History, wine and family are the backbone of the Schild brand and that is what has kept our customers so loyal to the Schild Estate brand.
Four rows of vines planted by the Jacob brothers in 1847, and saved from destruction by Ed Schild in 1984. Hand-picked, bunch-sorted, berry-sorted by table post destemmer, open-fermented, 5-8 days cold soak, 7-14-day ferment, matured for 18-24 months in 90% French/10% American oak (30% new). A great wine, the oak handling exemplary, keeping the cornucopia of purple and black fruits foremost. The mouthfeel is supple, the alcohol also exemplary. It's history gives it an extra point.
