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.
An inviting bouquet of dark fruits, chocolate and Christmas cake spice. The palate is full-bodied with a rich abundance of fruit flavours balanced by subtle oak characters and smooth tannins.

"Raspberry, cherry, vanilla, toasted coconut and Asian spices with a distinctly saucy aspect. Medium bodied, juicy and plump, but with that savoury Barossa coal character, for want of a better description, to temper. There’s well pitched acidity and supple fine grained tannin, along with good length. Altogether tasty and enjoyable." Gary Walsh
