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.
Deep red in colour this wine offers aromas of ripe cherry, plum and spice. The palate is classically Barossa with bright, ripe layers of red fruits and spice, supported by well-integrated oak characters and fine tannins. An rich, fruity Barossa Shiraz that is ready to go now.

"Plump, succulent and floral thing, with a brown spices, blackberries and assorted stonefruits. Medium to full bodied, a slight meatiness, but pretty much a silky and approachable Barossa Shiraz that slips down pretty nicely." Gary Walsh

Item Code: ITM7092
"Grilled steak with pepper, herbs de Provence, almost a violet thing going on, black fruits, iron filings. Medium bodied, distinctly ferrous and meaty, almost bloody, seasoned with salt and herbs, streaks of gummy tannin, clean acidity, all that meat, blackness and herb on the finish. Dare I say it, the Rhône expression of Shiraz from Heady?" Gary Walsh

"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
"Earthy, coffee grounds, dark spices, black fruit, dried mint, a touch of tar. Full bodied, dense well-packed, almost silty tannin, richness and spice, almost sticky feel in the mouth – like slow-cooked ribs – dark spice theme continues, drying and firm on a long finish. Savoury. Deep. Throbbing. It’s excellent." Gary Walsh
Item Code: ITM15538
This limited release Shiraz boasts complex aromas of plum, blackcurrant, dark chocolate and clove. A pool of black berry fruits immerse the palate, which is made more complex by gentle waves of mocha, liquorice and black pepper. The oak is balanced and welcoming, and the tannins persistent. A simply beautiful wine.
Item Code: ITM4585
"Silky smooth, spicy, plush and packed with red and black fruits, sage and dried mint, some grilled meat in there too. It’s dense, but not heavy, with a beautiful set of milk chocolate tannin that coats the mouth, gently, fine and even acidity, and a nutty vanillin and dried herb perfumed aftertaste that carries very long. Beautiful wine. Fine and elegant, to use an over-used description." Gary Walsh

"… a riveting effort that displays the exquisite talent of David Powell. Its smoky perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with cherries, acacia flowers, and espresso roast is followed by a full-throttle, multi-layered palate as well as a 60-second finish.” Robert Parker
