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.
Intense aromatics of dark fruits and spice lead onto a palate that is an easy drinking delight. Juicy fruits, bright acidity, and gentle tannins, this is a wine to drink time and time again - and at the price, you'll be more than happy to!

"Matured for 18 months in new and used French oak, which is still flexing
its muscles, but before too long will have to gracefully give way to the supple, but intense, black cherry and black berry fruit; the handling of the tannins has been critical in giving the wine its stamp of ultimate quality." James Halliday
