Aged just 16, Ed Schild took over the running of his family vineyard following the tragic death of his father in 1956. This wine is a tribute to his father, Ben Schild, made from carefully selected fruit grown in a single vineyard overlooking Lyndoch. It is fermented in open top fermenters, then aged for 18 months in an eclectic mix of French, American and Hungarian oak. Tina Gellie: Fresh, pure bramble aromas are lifted by a floral edge. The weighty, meaty palate has nice juicy, sappy red fruits and dusty tannins, with appealing Chinese five spice notes. Well done! Roger Jones: Spiced, juicy and voluptuous on the palate, with a lovely meaty, bacon character intertwined with luscious red and black fruits which linger on the palate. It's a luscious wine that's crying out for pork belly. Anthony Rose: A good, rich colour and attractively spicy aromatics lead into a full-bodied, full-throttle palate. Spicy, sweet blackcurrant fruit tapers nicely to a seductive finish. It has a juicy texture, and background notes of pepper and spice. A lovely wine. Drinking window: 2018-2025. Part of Top Wines of 2018 from Decanter Panel Tastings. Score - 95. (decanter.com, Dec. 15, 2018)
