Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars.

Slightly cooler than its northern neighbour, the southern end of the Barossa Valley is perfect for growing Shiraz vines capable of providing lush, generous fruit, ideal for the production of sparkling Shiraz. A single vineyard wine from a small parcel on the estate Aherns vineyard near Lyndoch, harvested in mid March each year, destemmed and left on skins over several days for extraction. Juices are vinified in open top fermenters and allowed to develop for a year in seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. The wine is then put through a secondary fermentation and doseaged prior to bottling.
Dark cherry red, persistent mousse. Rich and inviting aromas of blackberry, dark plums, cherries, chocolate and licorice. Vibrant berry fruits and pepper spice are supported by a soft tannin structure with balanced acid and sweetness giving the wine a fine bead and creamy, elegant mouthfeel. Schild is an ultra fine example of a uniquely Australian winestyle, the finish is fresh, plush and lingering.
