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.
Rich blue and black fruits combine with meaty and spicy notes in this fabulous Eden Valley Shiraz. It’s a wine of power and structure but a surprising lightness of touch. Great Shiraz for now or later.

A beautifully expressive Single Vineyard Eden Valley Shiraz showing bright and youthful aromas of mulberry, cocoa and dark pepper with a touch of eucalypt all wound up in blanket of beautifully integrated oak. Mid weight, compact and dense, it has an intense core of dark fruits with exceptional impact plus a long and silky finish underpinned by fine-grained tannins. Benchmark Eden Valley Shiraz.

Dried violets, redcurrant fruit, black olive and cedary oak. The stunningly elegant palate is structured and complex with red fruits and a wonderful meaty/gamey savouriness leading to a long finish with layers and layers of flavour. This is reminiscent of the Northern Rhone. Outstanding.

“Silky smooth. Coffee chocolates, exotic spice, black fruit, lavenderand other floral perfume. 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

"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

"Another very different wine: it's savoury, intense and mouthwatering, the tannins with feet all of their own. It steps lightly, with red and black fruits and has that Eden Valley ability to transcend the here and now to look into the future without conscious thought." Halliday Wine Companion
