97+ The Wine Advocate

...presents youthful, muted aromas with primary notes of black cherries, creme de cassis and violets highlighted by hints of allspice and fennel seed. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the dense fruit is superbly framed by a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and lively acid. It has lovely poise through the very long finish.

96James Suckling

The nose has a very intense and spicy attitude with blueberries, redcurrants and red plums. Some pepper and sage-leaf notes. The palate is very intense and rich with bold blackberry and blueberry flavors, in a smoothly building style. So drinkable.


Australia, South Australia, Eden 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.


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.
