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.
Plum, raspberry and aniseed aromas carry onto the palate where a soft tannin structure combine with dark berries, cherry and vanilla to create mouth-watering complexity.
