2018 The Schiller Shiraz


Description: A very special vineyard planted in 1881 by the Schiller family. The wine is opulent and full, the hall mark of Shiraz made from Centenarian vines.

Vintage: 2018

Grape Variety: Shiraz

Region: Barossa Valley

Reviews & Awards: From 400 vines planted 1881 in the Hallett Valley. Wild fermented; basket pressed; matured in 50% new French oak barrels; unfined and unfiltered. The deep, exotic spice, black and red berry fruits and supple, slippery tannins of ancient 1881 vines are confidently backed by high-class dark chocolate and coffee-bean French oak. Fruit and oak duck and swoop long through the finish, neither competing nor integrating, but setting into a comfortable stand-off that only calls for time to settle. 95 points Tyson Stelzer, Australian Wine Companion
