Schubert Estate is on Roennfeldt Road, Marananga in the Barossa Valley, an area highly regarded for its vineyards. Schubert Estate began in the 1890s when George Johann Christian Schubert and his family migrated from Prussia and settled in the township of Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Grapes have been grown on the property for wine production since 1915.
Deep, intense crimson-purple, holding its colour through to the rim. While I'd love to be able to taste this wine at 14% (or even 14.5%) alcohol, I'll roll over and acknowledge the black fruit flavour is so powerful it makes light work of the alcohol. It has all the packaging attributes, and all the wine signature of wines in the $80-100 price range. Drink to: 2036; Alcohol: 15%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday
Sweetly fruited and immensely appealing, the bouquet shows dark fruit intensity combined with seductive notes of vanilla, cocoa, olive and cedar. The palate displays outstanding power and concentration, wonderfully supported by velvety mouthfeel and silky tannins, finishing superbly long and delicious.

This is a super concentrated and powerful statement of the Barossa. Rich dark chocolate and earthy plummy fruits with a splash of vanillin oak, coffee grinds and liquorice. This says Barossa with a capital B. And just below the surface is a regional minerality that plays a pivotal role in the palate presentation with its counterbalance to the sweet ripe fruits.

Impressively packaged. This is a heavily awarded wine, again from the family vineyards in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa. Near black in colour. Warm earth notes intertwined with blackberries. There are flavours moving through leather, cloves, chocolate and coffee grinds. A sweet core of mocha which really sets the wine up as something a bit delicious, but there is also a savouriness which provides ideal balance. Good length and excellent focus. An absolute crowd pleaser. Rating: 93 Points; Ken Gargett
