Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz 2008

83 points

Barossa South Australia. 14.5%

Surprisingly mellow and unconcentrated. Bland. Reflects its price, not the stellar ratings that Wine Spectator gave it.

In spite of the back label talking of “wine that speaks of honesty” Schild Estate were caught bottling a 2nd different (bought in) wine under this label after selling out due to the Wine Spectator review. I was assured that this was the first bottling (the 2nd was given a note on the label – after they were caught).
