VINTAGE: 2016 WINERY:Schild estate
COUNTRY: Australia REGION:Barossa valley
VARIETAL:Grenache / garnacha & blends
The Schild Estate Barossa Valley GMS is a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre (Mataro) and Shiraz. These three classic red wine varieties are blended to showcase the unique qualities of each whilst ensuring balance, purity of fruit and the utmost drinkability. Inviting red fruit aromas of fresh cherries, red currants and raspberries combine with some blue fruit notes upfront before a hint of stony minerality and subtle notes of pepper spice, lavender and garrigue herb emerge from behind. Vibrant red berry and raspberry fruit show early on the palate providing a pillowy, velvet like feel to the wine early on. This fruity opening envelopes a firm Mataro core driving down the middle. Some white pepper spice provides an additional layer of interest and a super fine tannin presence provides some balance, containment and focus to the fruit.
