94Wine Enthusiast

Chocolate and vanilla shadings frame bowls of mixed berries in this full-bodied, powerful wine. It finishes long and intense, outlined by dusty tannins.

93Wine Spectator

Intense and expressive, with rich plum, black cherry and fig flavors that are supple and juicy in equal measure, balanced by accents of vanilla bean, mocha and orange zest. The finish is velvety, lingering with a spicy grace note.

92James Suckling

Smells of crushed blackberry and plum fruits, some fine mineral-like aromas, stony and very spicy, it’s an attractive and inherently complex wine. Tannins are fine for the most part, they are delivered in a smooth and supple, really nicely focused and medium-weight in style, fleshy middle palate, nicely detailed, balanced, tastes of toasted biscuit spices and blood plum, really pure and focused.


Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale

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.


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.
