Colour: Deep, dark purple. Dense and solid to the edge. Bouquet: Aromatic primary fruit aromas of blood plums and blackcurrants are accompanied by just a hint of violet flowers, soft creamy fresh vanilla bean, dark chocolate and mocha notes and a fleeting, wafting subtle glimpse of oak spice. Palate: A classic core of plush, lifted dark berry compote fruit, coupled with classic chocolate and spice flavours and a vibrant acid line ensures some freshness and vitality on tasting. This primary fruit holds its line to the end constantly intertwined and enveloped by a fine, but ever present tannin structure providing some clear framing , direction and balance and ensures no jagged edges are evident. Cellaring: Drink to 2022

Wine AdvocateAt five years after the vintage, the 2012 Ben Schild Reserve Single Vineyard Shiraz is entering a sweet spot in terms of drinkability. It's concentrated and rich, gussied up with 40% new oak. Vanilla is a factor, of course, but more prominent is the dark plum and black cherry fruit, which rolls in long, slow waves across the full-bodied palate. The tannins are supple, turning plush and velvety on the cocoa-tinged finish.
