Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000.

The unique tapestry of Schild's vineyards allows the team to craft wines which are honesty and satisfying. Three Springs Farm is where the original Schild homestead is located. Situated on Steingarten Road at Rowland Flat, Three Springs sits at 380 metres above sea level. Vineyards at this altitude are traditionally much lower yielding than the Barossa Valley floor, producing higher quality fruit. Parcels of Chardonnay are fermented at low temperatures in tank to preserve fresh varietal expression and to achieve a bright fruit forward style, supported by a complex structure and full flavour development derived from extended lees contact post fermentation, bottled completely unoaked.
Pale gold with green hues. Lifted notes of banana and tropical fruit, guavas and a touch of lemongrass. Traces of stone fruit, apricots and young rock melon combine over a solid palate and fine taut structure, providing clear direction and balance. Ample flavours and good weight of fruit on the mid palate, fresh, crisp and extremely varietal without the use of any oak.
