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.
The nose displays youthful bright red fruit which continues onto the palate. The palate is abundant with red fruits with a wonderful integration with soft savoury tannins, and the acid creating a well balanced, medium-bodied Shiraz.

A powerful yet subtle Shiraz. Pure flavours of plums, blackberries and cassis balanced by spice and earthy characters. Round, soft tannins add texture and length. A fine example of a Hunter Shiraz.

“Deepish purple/red colour, youthful looking and bright. The aroma is subtle but fresh and bright, while the palate is again subtle and fresh, soft and approachable, with mild tannins and a good degree of elegance. The wine is deliciously fine, elegant and subtle, with medium-weight and fine-grained tannins. A classy medium-bodied shiraz.” Huon Hooke
