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.

"This has a delicious future ahead of it. It combines fruit and oak to excellent effect but it has an inherent complexity just itching for a bit more bottle age. It tastes of blueberry, red liquorice and black cherry, splashes dried herbs and cedarwood about, and has a perfumed water-based feel to it; it’s very much in the “Burgundian Shiraz” mould. Beautiful drinking." Campbell Mattinson
