RATINGS

92The Wine Advocate

Scents of cola, blueberries and baking spices emerge on the nose, while the palate delivers silky cherry and raspberry fruit. It's full-bodied and supple, with a crisp finish and touches of mocha.

90James Suckling

Aromas of leaves, mushrooms and blackberries follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh yet slightly lean finish.

90Wine Enthusiast

...aromas of cherry cola, sweet spice and dusty oak. The tannins are big but integrated, with vibrant acidity and herbal, medicinal flavors.

REGION

Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
