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.
“Clever Hunter Valley Shiraz. A beautifully medium-bodied wine which showed well, particularly on the second day of tasting. Fistfuls of plums, blackberry and dark cherry fruit ride the soft waves of spice. Red earthiness so vivid in great Hunter Shiraz adds further interest as it taps its foot to a neat beat in the background. Tar comes to the fore with more time in the glass but it’s those blackberries I keep coming back to. A great wine - Matt Burton is doing great things with his wines. Get on board.” QWine
Item Code: ITM25378
Medium to full bodied with a lively, intense purple colour. Black cherry, raspberry and fresh, spicy flavours dominate the palate with a vibrant, fresh acidity that make the wine a wonderful example of the modern, balanced style of Hunter Valley Shiraz.

"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

"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

“Wild-fermented and matured in puncheons for 16 months. The first vintage without viognier. 240 dozen. Dark crimson, fragrant and elegant lifted bramble and spice.

"Deluxe packaging is the start, the vinification precisely reflected on the dark berries of the bouquet and supple, medium-bodied palate. By both whole bunch/berry fermentation and the French oak maturation, tannins are relegated to the sidelines and told to keep quiet. An opulent wine in opulent packaging - no expense spared." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM22309
"Matured for 2 years in French hogsheads (50% new). When you see the colour, assess the bouquet and think about the oak, you expect a full-bodied wine - it's a great (and pleasant) surprise to find a medium-bodied shiraz with blackberry and plum fruits, fine, ripe tannins and a long, well balanced palate." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM19733
"Lovely wine. Energetic, textural, aromatic and satisfying. Not a bad combination. Blue, red and black berries. Graphite. Cloves. Violets. And mint. Classic Eden Valley shiraz/syrah. 13.5% alcohol but with plenty of flavour, all presented with a fresh face. Tannin clips it all attractively into line. Ultra-fine is the word." Campbell Mattinson
