This irreplaceable vineyard was planted by Johan and William Jacob in 1847, just eleven years after the foundation of South Australia, and at over 170 years old represent some of the oldest vines in the world. The block is situated between Jacob’s Creek and the North Para River, hence the name Moorooroo, an aboriginal word meaning ‘meeting of two waters’. Only four rows of these ancient vines are left. This coupled with low yields ensures production sits around 200 cases.
“Moorooroo really is an exceptional site. These vines create a wine that truly speaks of a unique sense of place, preserving a rare and significant site such as this, is vitally important, not just for us at Schild Estate, but for the whole Barossa region” – Ed Schild.
