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.

“Clever Hunter Valley Shiraz. A beautifully medium-bodied wine which showed well, particularly on the second day of tasting. Fistfuls of plums, blackberry and dark cherry fruit ride the soft waves of spice. Red earthiness so vivid in great Hunter Shiraz adds further interest as it taps its foot to a neat beat in the background. Tar comes to the fore with more time in the glass but it’s those blackberries I keep coming back to. A great wine - Matt Burton is doing great things with his wines. Get on board.” QWine
