Truly iconic Barossa Valley Shiraz from 175-year-old ancestor vines in Moorooroo and an ode to Australia’s most famous style. Crafted from hand-picked fruit grown on Schild’s four cherished rows of 1847 vines, this icon is one to put away and enjoy in years to come.

"We are really excited to start showing the 2018 Moorooroo. An early look there are elements present that are unmistakably consistent hallmarks of the Moorooroo. At the same time however the 2018 offering also clearly shows the stamp of the year in which it was grown and made - the 2018 Vintage produced some of the highest quality wines from the region, but what it gave us in quality it took away in quantity. A particularly low-yield means the already limited Moorooroo Shiraz is in exceedingly short supply this year. The characteristics provide a genuine sense of brightness and vitality, a lovely coiled tension in its youth and a real sense of layering and interest." Scott Hazeldine, Chief Winemaker

98 POINTS
Andrew Caillard, MW

Deep crimson. Intense dark plum, blackberry, espresso aromas with chinotto, liquorice notes. Inky rich and supple with ripe dark plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, mocha flavours, fine loose knit chocolaty tannins, lovely mid-palate volume and fresh long mineral acidity. Finishes cedary firm with plentiful sweet fruit and underlying herb garden/ aniseed notes. Still in its elemental phase with the fruit, oak and tannins nicely balanced. Wait awhile and let the wine unfold.

THE MAKER

Schild Estate

A trip back to the early days of Aussie wine


Schild Estate patriarch Ed Schild has been at the helm of the winery since 1956, when he took over at the green age of 16. Since then, with the help of his wife Lorraine and their children (and now grandchildren), he’s steadily grown Schild’s holdings to a whopping 134 hectares.

The Moorooroo vineyard is home to vines planted in 1847 — only 11 years after the original settlement of South Australia. These ‘ancestor vines’ are some of the oldest plantings in the world and have weathered everything from colossal storms to extreme drought.
