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.
Red fruit aromas with a blackberry jubiness, framed by fragrant vanillin oak. The palate is ripe with black fruits and layers of creamy oak. Recommended.
Item Code: ITM22154
"It has an inherent complexity but it’s also smooth, rich and creamy. It’s true to the ‘syrah’ style but it also delivers flavour in spades. The conclusion: it’s a beautiful wine. Plums, cherries, woody spices, choc-cream and mint. Fine-grained tannin. Harmony. It’s all here." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM23616

Item Code: ITM4781
Rich dark and red fruit, mocha, spice and French oak on the nose. A soft, juicy palate with fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. An elegant yet subtle wine with excellent length.
Item Code: ITM6774
"Bowled over by balance. It’s bold with flavour but everything here feels so well placed. It tastes of licorice, redcurrant, black cherries and peppery herbs, and while there’s a velvety/creaminess to the texture oak is not a major flavour contributor. Tannin spreads and runs through a good deal of the wine, almost always a good sign. Length, tick. Fabulous." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM7091

"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: ITM15302
"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

Flood of black and blue fruit and spice, inward perfume, thickness without being heavy, and a long finish where the tannin finally makes its escape from the folds of fruit, and shapes up the finale most impressively. A winner for fanciers of Eden Valley Shiraz.” Gary Walsh

"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

Halliday Wine Companion
