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.

"Sparks of spice and a core of red-black fruit. This drinks well. Anise, cloves, briar and black cherry with a whisper of smoky reduction but no more than that. Fruit-driven but with a savoury side. Firm through the finish. Not a big wine but a wine of balance and style. Pretty keen buying." Campbell Mattinson

"Deep colour; a very complex shiraz, in terms of flavour and structure; oak plays a significant role in the mocha/dark chocolate/spice components, but the purple and black fruits are more than a match, assisted by tannins in creating the stimulating texture on the back-palate and finish." Halliday Wine Companion
