Schild Estate Moorooroo shiraz

Brooding, powerful, opulent. From 4 rows of Ancestor vines, 125+ years

Deep ruby, purple in colour showing intense and creamy aromas of dark compote berry fruit with hints of blackberry, plums and mulberries peeking through. On the palate waves of the same dark berry fruit show early providing a density and voluptuousness to the mouth-feel that remains deep into the mouth and rolls out through the back. It is joined by just a hint of spice and some subtle glimpses of faint leather and sandalwood.


Cellar to 2030+ in satisfactory conditions

The Moorooroo Vineyard was planted by Johan and William Jacob in 1847. The block is situated between Jacob’s Creek and the North Para River, hence the name Moorooroo, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘meeting of two waters’.

The Moorooroo vines concentrate the characteristics of the single vineyard into a wine of rare complexity, at the same time displaying intensity of character with a subtlety and elegance.
