Schild Estate 2017 Grenache-Mourvèdre-Shiraz Red (Barossa Valley)

This blend is very reductive to start, and it's hard to get past the sweaty cabbage notes. It does open somewhat with time, offering a sweet and sour note, along with ripe plum, blueberry, chocolate and white pepper, backed by vanillin oak. The palate is rich and a bit flat, wanting for more freshness. There's a grip of nicely textured, spicy tannins, but overall there's a lot of winemaking here without a lot of reward.
