Schild estate Moorooroo shiraz 2018
The Schild Estate Moorooroo Shiraz 2018 is a product of ancient vines planted in 1847, offering a rich and flavorful experience. Described as a luscious, open-knit Shiraz, it presents a bouquet of plush cherry and black currant, intertwined with dried thyme, mint, dark chocolate, and a unique beetroot and tomato leaf nuance, giving it a complex profile. This medium-bodied wine, originating from the Barossa Valley, is noted for its juicy and intense flavors, boasting a palate of fresh red and dark cherry, blueberry, plum compote, and spicy notes, leading to a smoky and smooth finish. Visually, it stands out with a dark ruby, purple color, and offers prominent, yet controlled aromas of blood plums, mulberries, and brambly hedgerow fruit, complemented by subtle undertones of dark chocolate and pepper spice. When tasted, the primary notes of plum and mulberry are immediately apparent. This Shiraz exemplifies the rich viticultural heritage of the Barossa Valley, delivering an experience that over-delivers in quality and complexity for its price.
