Ben Schild Reserve Shiraz
Barossa
Available by the dozen
Johannes Hugo Bernard Ben Schild relocated his family, including a young Ed Schild, to Rowland Flat in the Barossa, establishing his vineyard circa 1952 after many years of grain farming in the Mallee. Following Ben's passing in 1956, fifteen year old Ed took over the reins of the family farm to continue the work started by his father. A careful sorting of the best grapes, picked off a single low yielding parcel planted by Ben Schild in the hills overlooking Lyndoch, provides the backbone of fruit for Schild Reserve, a stately Barossa Shiraz in true blockbuster styling.

A commemorative wine dedicated to the estate's patriarch and his foresight in founding the Schild wineworks. Harvested throughout the chill of early morning, grapes are crushed and given a thorough maceration for the optimal extraction of colour and tannins. Parcels are transferred to small open fermenters, inoculated and treated to a regimen of regular pumpovers, completing vinification to complete dryness at a relatively high alcohol content. Upon completion of a further course of maceration on skins, components are filled to a selection of seasoned and new, French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for two years, followed by an extended term of bottle age under the Schild cellars before release.
 
Deep ruby red. An intense creamy perfume of lifted violets and blue fruit, blueberry crumble and dark plums, hints of restrained black pepper spice. These all lead to a fine soft tannin framework, a palate of lifted, perfumed fruit over hints of well integrated oak, followed by a lengthy persistent, sweet tannin finish. A profound experience even in it's youth, displaying superb structure and finesse, an expression of the place whence it originates.

The Schild approach is very much centred around progress in the vineyard. Everything is aimed at preserving the character of quality fruit without too much interference from the winery. Fruit is sourced from the Schild family's best parcel of Chardonnay at Moorooroo Vineyard near Rowland Flat, grapes are harvested and picked at optimum ripeness in the cool night air. Grapes are de stemmed and the musts are chilled, vinified in controlled fermenters followed by transfer to barrel for completion of ferments, lees stirring, malolactic and a term of maturation. Quality French oak and several months on lees infuses the palate and contributes texture to an elegant yet complex Chardonnay.
 
Bright straw hue. Fragrant peach and honeydew melon bouquets overlaid with toasty French oak.

In 1866 the Schild Family immigrated to Australia from Poland as part of the exodus from religious persecution

Johannes Hugo Bernhard (Ben) Schild, the father of Edgar (Ed) Schild heeded the work of his ancestors thus ensuring that the Schild family would have an impact in this new country. Ben Schild met his wife Freida Alma Schild nee Schutz in the early 1920s and began a family which consisted of eight children raised in the wilds of the Mallee country near the small pioneering town of Lameroo.

Schild Estate

History, Style and Elegance goes back to the early 1950's, after 30 years of pioneer farming in the harsh Mallee region of South Australia, Ben Schild had a vision of settling down in the finest region in the state. In 1952 Ben Schild purchased the Three Springs Farm, which included a small vineyard in the Barossa Valley of Rowland Flat and began transforming it for sustainable viticulture.

Ed Schild took over the reins of the 40 acre property following his fathers passing in 1952. He steadily increased his holdings over time with clever acquisition and good management and the steadying assistance of his wife Lorraine, through some of the most depressing times in local viticulture, to what today comprises approximately 380 acres in the Barossa Valley. Today Ed's son Michael with assistance from his wife Kylie and a dedicated team is overseeing the management and development of the vineyards.

Re-planting and re-development of older vineyards are a continuing goal in the evolution of quality viticulture

Ed's daughters, Judy Watson and Leanne Chapman also contribute in professional capacities making sure that the bond of family involvement is strong. The Schild family is confident that the 6th Generation is just as dedicated to the betterment of the label as the current family employees.

The first Schild Estate Wines produced in 1998, saw a total of 7 tonnes crushed making 450 cases. Since then the growth in production and quantity has been truly outstanding. "The Schild family is determined to continue the growth and success of their wine label and with good management and a stable foundation built on history and hard work this vision will be obtained and maintained".

The Schild Estate vineyards are endowed with Ancient Shiraz planted by the explorers of the Barossa region over 155 years ago. The extensive use of mulching, minimal intervention practices, minimal irrigation, permanent sod cultures and careful pruning methods have allowed for wines of distinctive characters to be produced. The Three Springs Farm Block is the original Schild family's estate. Situated on Steingarten Road at Rowland Flat, this vineyard sits at 380 metres above sea level. Harvesting of the fruit at optimum flavour ripeness in the vineyard is essential. A great deal of time is spent in each individual vineyard assessing the fruit for desired varietal flavours and quality.

The Schild's Moorooroo Vineyard was originally owned by the Jacob brothers and planted to viticulture to value add the already extensive agriculture holdings. Original planting on this site dates back to the late 1840s. Located 4 km north of the Lyndoch Township, the relatively young Angus Brae Vineyard is managed to suite the soil profile and terroir ensuring premium fruit is produced.

The 40 acres at Gogoll's Vineyard were formerly grazing and broad acre farming, and were replanted to vine production. The Schild family purchased this land in 1990, and found this site to be ideal for planting two varieties Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon. Hausler's Vineyard was planted up to 30 years ago, this vineyard is located at the base of the Barossa foothills 5km east of Lyndoch. Ahrens' Vineyard was originally used as broad acre farming, the Schild family purchased this 80 acre property in 1995.
