One of the new world's most exclusive, ancient vineyard wines, awaited annually by the most discerning Shiraz enthusiasts around the globe. Only ever bottled in the finest vintages, fruit is sourced from the superior Ahrens Vineyard at Lyndoch and the historic Moorooroo site at Jacobs Creek, which for more than 120 years, ended up with Orlando. Moorooroo is made from the four remaining rows of the original Wiliam Jacob Shiraz plantings, saved from the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s by estate patriarch Ed Schild.
In 1846 William Jacob accompanied Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to open up Adelaide's north. Jacob and his brother John claimed the rich alluvial junction of Jacob's Creek and the North Para River for future farming opportunities, which they established shortly after. Moorooroo has been produced from the remaining four rows of original Shiraz plantings, saved from the vine pull of the mid 1980s by Ed Schild. Grapes are crushed and open fermented until dry. Moorooroo is matured twenty four months in a mix of new and prior use French oak hogsheads, followed by a minimal filtration and bottle ageing under the Schild cellars for a further two years.
TASTING NOTES
Dark purple colour, almost black. Brooding bouquet of dark berry fruits, mocha and chocolate notes. An opulently rich style, showing cherries and subtle oak, vibrant floral fruit flavours evolve, a lovely palate borne perfume. Moorooroo defines power with balance in control, supported by fine, firm tannins before finishing integrated and immeasurably long.

More About Schild Estate Winery
In 1866 the Schild Family immigrated to Australia from Poland as part of the exodus from religious persecution
Johannes Hugo Bernhard (Ben) Schild, the father of Edgar (Ed) Schild heeded the work of his ancestors thus ensuring that the Schild family would have an impact in this new country. Ben Schild met his wife Freida Alma Schild nee Schutz in the early 1920s and began a family which consisted of eight children raised in the wilds of the Mallee country near the small pioneering town of Lameroo.
