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.
Bold, spiced fruits with rounded oak tones lift out of the glass. The palate is open-knit and generous with bright fruits and plenty of appeal. Great value.

'The mid-palate scrapes through by the skin of its teeth, but the finish is convincing and there’s a real sense of structural integrity to this. It feels sturdy. It tastes of blackcurrant, cloves, toast and gum leaves and while it takes time to built momentum and volume it gets there in the end.' James Halliday

“The colour isn’t particularly deep, but the hue is bright. The wine, too, is fresher and more lively than those of yore. The flavours span blackberry, plum and cherry, the tannins ripe and balanced in a medium-bodied palate. Large oak vats and smaller French and American barrels were used in maturation.” Halliday Wine Companion

Item Code: ITM2306
"It’s a substantial red wine with fruit – rather than oak – to the fore. It’s a pure expression of shiraz in a Barossa landscape. It tastes of coal and blackberry jam, campfire and cloves, but it’s that hearty hit of blackberried – tinged with raspberry – fruit that really characterises it. It's a faultless Shiraz, from all angles." Campbell Mattinson
