96 Points - James Halliday
Deep red, some crimson; medium- to full-bodied, and particularly intense; perfectly ripened fruit gives blackberry and bitter chocolate flavours without a scintilla of overripe/dead fruit characters; great length.
95 Points - Jay Miller (erobertparker.com)
The 2006 Shiraz Goose Yard Block offers a full-throttle, room-filling aromatic array of violets, Asian spices, truffle, wild blueberry, and black cherry jam. On the palate it is already strikingly complex, incredibly dense and concentrated, and impeccably balanced with fully integrated oak, tannin and acidity. The finish lasts for well over a minute. It will have a lengthy drinking window beginning in 2011 and lasting though 2026.
Consistently receiving the five star winery accolade from James Halliday, Schubert Estate is situated in one of the prime spots in the Barossa Valley, Roennfeldt Road, with Torbreck and Penfolds vineyards just next door. Steve and Celia Schubert run the estate today and have established their vineyards with a clear intention of working with, rather than against nature. The vineyards are carefully maintained using organic produce and the combination of soil, climate and a hands-on approach with the vines consistently produces fruit, and consequently wines of excellent quality.
Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
