Originally formulated by John Charles Brown OBE in 1954 and crafted to this very day in the exact same manner, Brown Brothers flagship icon endures as one of the nation's most distinguished single vineyard wines. Mondeuse plantings were brought to Australia in the early 1900s by the legendary Francois de Castella of St Hubert fame, they have remained the most precious parcel of Brown Brothers heirloom vines since the 1920s.

Graeme Melton and a mate were travelling across South Australia in 1973, their EH Holden was in dire need of maintenance and Graeme took up casual work at a passing winery. The site supervisor was Peter Lehmann and young Graeme had his epiphany on the road to Barossa Valley. Lehmann suggested that Graeme change his name to Charlie and take the pilgrimmage to Vallee Rhone. Charlie became prepossessed with the culture of old vines Grenache, Shiraz and Mourverdre.

Schild Estate's reputation is built on a commitment to translating the unique tapestry of vineyards into wines that speak of honesty and drinkability. Schild's Shiraz is another fine example of a classic regional style sourced exclusively from vines grown toward the southern end of Barossa Valley and the Schild Estate Angus Brae property. Fully ripened grapes are harvested throughout the cool of night. After crushing the musts are vinified in traditional open fermenters and given extended time on skins to carefully extract the full amount of colour, flavour and complexity. The wine is then treated to an extended maturation in a selection of new and prior use French and American oak hogsheads.
Vibrant, deep rich red colour. A nose of ripe cherries and plum, dark chocolates, christmas cake spice and vanillin undertones derived from the extended maturation in fine oak. A middle palate of vibrant, dark berry fruit is supported by clearly defined yet elegant tannin framework and some balanced acidity to provide structure and length. Long and lingering, bright, aromatic acids and a powerful intensity of fruit.
