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.
Grand Barossa Shiraz epitomises the premium international reputation for Shiraz which has made the Barossa Valley famous. Lifted aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper are accompanied by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate.

"Hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in new and used French oak. Archetypal cool climate, medium-bodied, shiraz. Its core of red and black cherry fruit has flecks of pepper, licorice and spice, the tannins smooth and supple, the oak totally integrated. Lovely style." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20549

Item Code: ITM22153
"Sparks of spice and a core of red-black fruit. This drinks well. Anise, cloves, briar and black cherry with a whisper of smoky reduction but no more than that. Fruit-driven but with a savoury side. Firm through the finish. Not a big wine but a wine of balance and style. Pretty keen buying." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM21909
"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

"Plum, dark cherry jam, smoked spices, black liquorice. It’s medium to full bodied, quite ferrous and tannic, but fleshy and sweet fruited too – almost a black jellybean kind of flavour – with earth, black olive and sheets of tannin to close it out. It’s quite rugged, but I like it. Thoroughly regional." Gary Walsh

Item Code: ITM3050
"Rustic appeal here. It's almost as though it's got the scruffed hair but clean pressed shirt look going on. Boysenberry and plum line up side by side. A kick of earth is met by smokey feels with a soft touch of tannin helping it along the way. Baking spices chime it at the death too lingering long - nice touch that. It's a damn easy slurp, that's for sure. The type of wine you'd take to a gathering of friends and be proud to share - and you'll win a few more friends for your trouble. Great stuff!" QWine Reviews
Item Code: ITM15581
"Estate-grown, matured in French oak for 17 months. Excellent colour; cigar box/cedary oak is the first out of the blocks on a medium-bodied palate; the fruit is relatively delicate, but its red berries are inviting, as are the freshness and length of the palate." Halliday Wine Companion

Item Code: ITM20300
"Just another $30 McLaren Vale shiraz? Absolutely not. This is profoundly exciting, another masterpiece from Peter Fraser, Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year '16. It's not often I'm tempted to sneakily swallow half a mouthful of a wine, it's almost as if an unseen force refuses to let me actually drink a little. The wine is spicy, textured, with a rainbow of dark fruit flavours - bloody gorgeous." Halliday Wine Companion
