Schild Estate 2014 GMS

I did a double take when I saw the price tag after tasting this wine in a blind line-up. It has to be one of Australia's best red wine bargains right now; a wine I scored at 93 that retails for for under $20. A blend of three red varieties that traditionally shine in the Barossa; grenache 52%), shiraz (24%) and mourvedre/mataro (24%), it is bright and juicy, firm and fruity but also has enough structure to be considered for the cellar. There is some appealing softness and hints of pepper but overall it is the sheer drinkability of this that stands out. Well worth buying a few bottles. $18.
