94The Wine Advocate

...nose of black plums, black cherries and mulberries with nuances of underbrush, fruit cake and damp soil. The full-bodied palate has satisfying richness, with firm, rounded tannins supporting the earthy fruit layers, finishing with good depth and persistence.

94Vinous / IWC

Displays expansive aromas of dark fruit liqueur, incense, violet and spicecake, along with hints of cola and cracked pepper... Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering concentrated black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors... Supple and appealingly sweet on an impressively long, floral-driven finish...well-knit tannins.

94James Suckling

Plenty of baking spices and pepper for early appeal. Fruits are in the ripe blackberry, blueberry and dark raspberry zone...palate rolls out riper than expected, a very round, rich and enveloping feel to this. Flavor of black tea and plum, tannins really drive ripe and deep.

92Wine Enthusiast

...a deep, dark well of cherry chocolate cake, cola, raspberry, and spice. Juicy plush fruit on the palate is balanced by powerful yet silky tannins and a savory finish...full-bodied...

91Wine Spectator

Savory and dark, with hints of hoisin sauce and mineral to the firm and juicy core of cherry and blackberry flavors. Tobacco and toasted herb notes linger on the finish, with dense tannins.

18Jancis Robinson

Refined, really complex nose. Super-ripe purple fruit and lovely polish. So clean and fresh on the end. Suave and velvety. Complete. Lightly salty and beautifully smooth yet with masses of tannins underneath.


Australia, South Australia

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.
