There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz.

A selection of the finest Chardonnay from Schild's extensive holdings in the Barossa, around a backbone of fruit grown to the original Three Springs Farm and a further component from the precious Schild estate property in the hundred of Moorooroo. Demonstrating the excellence which can be gained from vines planted to a higher altitude, closely managed for a harvest of lower yields. Dominated by an intriguing mix of tropical and temperate orchard characters, a pure expression of Barossa Chardonnay, in a refreshingly fruit driven, unwooded styling.

Case of 12
$227.00
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.
