Schild Estate – South Australia – Barossa

In April 2013 I was lucky enough to spend 2 weeks touring the wine regions of Australia.
Of the many wines I tasted and producers visited, none shone out as brightly as Schild Estate in the Barossa Valley. Young winemaker Scott Hazeldene must be one of the most accomplished winemakers in Australia at the moment, and from the Estate’s ancient bush vines, some of them planted over 160 years ago, he produces some of the most concentrated, mouth-filling and sensuous Shiraz and Grenache I have ever had the good fortune to taste.
