PRÄMIE defines the best of the vintage and the land on which it was grown. Each vintage, certain parcels emerge as the stars; this wine came about by a desire from the Schild winemaking team to showcase the most exciting parcels of the year in an individual wine designed to reflect the most premium parcel of fruit from that particular vintage. 
In 2013, Shiraz fruit was selected from two special sites, the Liebich and Angus Brae blocks high up on the Eastern Hills. Meticulously handled to allow the vineyard to reach its fullest expression in the glass, pure lifted blue and black berries with hints of graphite and clove give way to a rich, dynamic palate showing great control, finesse and length. 
Full, soft and layered with aromas of vibrant blackberries and blood plum fruit. These are coupled with secondary more subtle hints of cedar wood, fresh vanilla bean, pan forte and clove spice. A stunning wine on every level.
96 points, James Halliday.
Schild Estate is a second-generation Barossa wine family. Ben and Alma Schild moved to the Valley in 1952, acquiring their first vineyard near Rowland Flat where the original homestead is still situated. Tragically Ben died suddenly in 1956 leaving son Ed, the youngest of eight children, to run the family property at the age of 16.
Ed Schild’s enthusiasm for the region, its offerings and vineyards saw him steadily grow the landholdings of the Schild Family, which today encompasses over 450 acres under vine. Within this large amount of land is one small patch of 160 year old shiraz vines which produces the iconic Moorooroo Shiraz.
Ed and Lorraine have four children and eight grandchildren which ensures a strong family focus within the winery today. In July 2010, the new state-of-the-art Valley of Hope Winery was opened, with 2011 the first complete vintage to come through its doors, under the charge of Chief Winemaker Scott Hazeldine.

Australian Wine Companion 2017

James Halliday

From the Liebich (80%) and Angus Brae (20%) vineyards; matured in new and used French hogsheads. A very classy, high quality wine that manages to display its power and complexity with a fresh but compelling touch; navigating the many black and blue fruit flavours in relatively easy and very pleasurable. 96 points. To 2038.
