The fruit grown in a low-yield, 30 year old vineyard is carefully crafted to develop intensely concentrated flavours. This wine displays ripe, juicy berry and spice flavours with well-rounded tannins and a very good, lengthy finish.
Dark ruby, purple in colour with prominent, but controlled aromas of blood plums, mulberries and brambly hedge row fruit supported by fainter hints of dark chocolate and subtle pepper spice. In the mouth the same primary plum and mulberry notes show early. These dark fruit flavours persist and roll in waves out through the back of the palate, always with a clear line of travel in mind and bordered by a fine, but ever present tannin frame.
This wine comes from a blend of Shiraz grapes from select parcels of vineyards including ‘Workshop’, ‘Angus Brae’ and ‘Three Springs’. Angus Brae is located in Altona between Rowland Flat and Lyndoch, named after Ed Schild’s grandson (Michael’s eldest). Three Springs Farm Vineyard is located at the site of the original family Estate.
The limited release collect from Chris Hill and Adam Jacobs is the culmination of a combined 50 years’ experience in viticulture and winemaking. Working with dedicated, independent grape growers we have selected the finest fruit from a single vineyard in Rowland Flat. This wine has been hand crafted to reflect the character and expression unique to the region. It combines rich earthy flavours with full bodied character.
