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.
Bright aromas of plum, liquorice, vanilla and spice. The palate is layered with bright red and black fruits while silky tannins provide structure and length on the finish.

"It’s a substantial red wine with fruit – rather than oak – to the fore. It’s a pure expression of shiraz in a Barossa landscape. It tastes of coal and blackberry jam, campfire and cloves, but it’s that hearty hit of blackberried – tinged with raspberry – fruit that really characterises it. It's a faultless Shiraz, from all angles." Campbell Mattinson

'The mid-palate scrapes through by the skin of its teeth, but the finish is convincing and there’s a real sense of structural integrity to this. It feels sturdy. It tastes of blackcurrant, cloves, toast and gum leaves and while it takes time to built momentum and volume it gets there in the end.' James Halliday

"Rustic appeal here. It's almost as though it's got the scruffed hair but clean pressed shirt look going on. Boysenberry and plum line up side by side. A kick of earth is met by smokey feels with a soft touch of tannin helping it along the way. Baking spices chime it at the death too lingering long - nice touch that. It's a damn easy slurp, that's for sure. The type of wine you'd take to a gathering of friends and be proud to share - and you'll win a few more friends for your trouble. Great stuff!" QWine Reviews

"Oozing all the charm of Clare Valley starting with its dark purple hue, its fragrance of Chinese five spice, graphite and menthol with tangy black plums, currants and tart tamarind-acidity. The well-composed palate incorporates finely-chiselled savoury tannins and plenty of joy in between." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20301
"Hand-picked, co-fermented with 2% viognier, no whole bunches this vintage, matured in French puncheons (25% new) for 15 months. An interesting follow-on to the '15, the latter giving rise to many very good wines. The '16 takes its time in asserting its character and quality, which it does so handsomely on the back-palate and finish. Here spicy, savoury notes are allied with terrific tannins, fine, yet persistent." Halliday Wine Companion
