Shiraz is Australia’s favourite variety, and its big, bold and full-bodied reds from regions such as the Barossa Valley have helped put Australia on the world wine map. Its spiritual home though is France’s Rhône Valley, where it is known as Syrah and produces wines typically lighter in body and alcohol. Sometimes Australian Shiraz is labelled as Syrah to indicate its specific style.
Bright aromas of plum, liquorice, vanilla and spice. The palate is layered with bright red and black fruits while silky tannins provide sructure and legnth on the finish.

"Plump, succulent and floral thing, with a brown spices, blackberries and assorted stonefruits. Medium to full bodied, a slight meatiness, but pretty much a silky and approachable Barossa Shiraz that slips down pretty nicely." Gary Walsh

"Grilled steak with pepper, herbs de Provence, almost a violet thing going on, black fruits, iron filings. Medium bodied, distinctly ferrous and meaty, almost bloody, seasoned with salt and herbs, streaks of gummy tannin, clean acidity, all that meat, blackness and herb on the finish. Dare I say it, the Rhône expression of Shiraz from Heady?" Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM15537
"Classic Barossa Shiraz with layers of ripe sweet fruit, all plum, musk and chocolate, and just so seductive and so well done, it’s hard not to fall in love with the style. Ripe and thick chocolat-y tannin, a mouth-perfume and a smattering of earthiness. Succulent, balanced, and very long. Smell the velvet glove. Delightful." Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM15542
"Deep, dark red colour with a good purple tint. The bouquet is savoury and earthy and slightly smoky, with a faint floral lift suggesting very ripe grapes. The tannins are graphite-like and drying on the middle and back-palates, with a very dry, sandpaper tannin aftertaste. Very good intensity and structure, long and satisfying. A ripping wine and a keeper." Huon Hooke
Item Code: ITM15515
"Earthy, coffee grounds, dark spices, black fruit, dried mint, a touch of tar. Full bodied, dense well-packed, almost silty tannin, richness and spice, almost sticky feel in the mouth – like slow-cooked ribs – dark spice theme continues, drying and firm on a long finish. Savoury. Deep. Throbbing. It’s excellent." Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM15538
"Silky smooth, spicy, plush and packed with red and black fruits, sage and dried mint, some grilled meat in there too. It’s dense, but not heavy, with a beautiful set of milk chocolate tannin that coats the mouth, gently, fine and even acidity, and a nutty vanillin and dried herb perfumed aftertaste that carries very long. Beautiful wine. Fine and elegant, to use an over-used description." Gary Walsh
